Joe .... you've had your new SA a few days now .... So .... How does it SHOOT . Impatiently waiting for your range report . I got out today a put quite a few .22 and .45 Colt downrange with a Single Six and one of my Ruger medium frame Flattops. Was good 'medicine' to a long work week and a nice afternoon for shoot'n!

Well, no ammo to run through it just yet. I ordered some 250gr LRNFP from Georgia Arms last night (500 rounds for $265 + shipping) but I don't know when I'll get it.

I've had a pair of the Cimarron Arms old style (1896-1940) frame SAAs in .45 Colt. I shot them a lot when I was into CAS and they both had trigger jobs to slick them up a bit. The only way to shoot a lot of those big cowboy calibers is to reload (unless you're rich). They've held up even better than I'd hoped.

I like the original style SAAs far more than the Ruger copies (which aren't even copies other than some styling cues. But when I got started with CAS I wanted to shoot guns as they shot them in the old days. My compromise was the second gen frame. Supposedly a bit stronger.

I never carry a round under the hammer and it was flat out not allowed at any of our matches - five rounds with an empty chamber under the hammer.
