.45 Auto (revolver)

Over my lifetime I have owned at least 4 revolvers in .45 Auto (ACP)

For one reason or another I got rid of them. The Nightguard was my worst mistake.

I now have a 625-8.
Original grips:
The Wheelhouse


Those grips tore the skin off and beat a knuckle to death.
So I got the old-timey service grips, similar to what I had on my pythons I carried as a police officer:
The Wheelhouse


Today, I think I have settled on a load of 5.5 grains of Bullseye under an x-tream 200gr plated SWC:
The Wheelhouse


This one is a keeper, although I'd rather have blue instead of stainless.

Very cool. I looked for one of those for a long time.

For some reason, old guns don't appear in the Kansas City area. No m1917, no old M10, no old m1911, etc.

Cool! I have four revolvers in 45ACP: a S&W M1917, a S&W M25-2, a S&W M22-4 Thunder Ranch model, and a Colt M1917.

45 revolvers are awesome!

I really like the .45acp revolvers, the 1911 ain't bad either.

Dusty, have you tried a Tyler insert with that grip combo? I bet you'd like it. Either way, I like how it looks with those wood classic panels.
