Pietta millenium

Does it really come in 44 magnum? Ive always seen how the pietta 1873 saa clones were original dimensions, the numbers just dont add up on paper so i am wondering.

Or is it a "its labelled as .44 magnum, but only use 44 special +p"?

FWIW

I bought an old Iver Johnson .44 Magnum made by Uberti with a 7.5 inch barrel.

I gave 176.00 plus shipping because it had an internal problem.

I straightened that out and came up with a fun shooter for just over 200.00.

I load black powder in the .44 magnums and the thing performs pretty well.

Essentially the same MV as my .45 LCs but less recoil.

I do understand we are not talking about the Pietta Millennium. And so the differences are there.

I will tell you I am not a fan of the parkerized style finish on a Peacemaker clone but that is a personal preference.
