All the DA wheelguns you've seen needed moon clips for quick ejection. SA wheelguns kick'em out one at a time by ramming a rod back through the cylinder and pushes the case out by its base instead of ejector star grabbing onto rims (revolver rounds) or ejector star pushing against moonclips (auto rounds).

Crisp like a glass rod.

That particular gun cries out for ivories, stag, horn or something IMO.
I think stag.

Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever gotten a new Colt in anything but a cardboard box...?
The pistols come in plastic hard cases.
Can you dig it?
