Colt literature of the 1880s recommends use of the quarter cock safety notch.

They made a few 1860s with 12 bolt notches in the cylinder. That way you could lower the hammer on the safety pin between chambers and have the cylinder locked in that position by the bolt. I wonder if a good gunsmith could not cut at least one extra notch in a SAA for the purpose.
