I bought this gun some time ago and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. The weight of the gun and the length of the barrel all but eliminate recoil. Pulling the hammer and rotating the cylinder can be slowed down if too much powder and grit accumulate during shooting; this is where proper maintenance comes into play. Keep it oiled properly and you should have no problem. - S. R.
Out of the box perfect selection for Cowboy Action Shooting. Single handed drawing, cocking, and reholstering are a snap with this design and the looks are right out of the period pages of the "Cowboy" look and feel. Hand filling grip is quick to bring up to target with its easy handling 5 1/2" barrel length and shoots to point of aim at the distances incountered in Cowboy Action Shooting. Smooth steady trigger pull with slight amount of creep. All in all a very hansome and dependable firearm for the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting and a worthy sidearm in the field at a very reasonable price. - K. W.
Man, I love this pistol. I thought it would knock me on my butt. But even with a 4 5/8\" barrel length, it is a great shooti\' iron. I like the 45 long Colt cartridge and will add a carbine action rifle to go with this pistol. Sort of expensive just to plink around the range, but fun none the same. Highly recommended firearm. - R.
