Well, from further research, this possible conclusion.

The late Charles Suydam, in his work US Cartridges and Their Handguns states "...........a few Colt double action revolvers chambered for this round [.45 M1906 Rimmed ] were purchased, issued for trial and use in the Phillippines." This for trials held in 1906-1907.

It would seem to me that these were commercial Colt New Service revolvers. White and Munhall ( Pistol and Revolver Cartridges, Vol. I ) make this statement: "The revolver portion of these tests resulted in a number of Colt Revolvers being purchased and placed in the hands of selected troops for further experimentation."

Time spent at the reloading bench is an investment in contentment.
