Why because it has a pony on the side and is a better investment?  Never mind that the third gen Colts are JUNK!

they are much better made and finished than Ubertis, and the steel is much better than Piettas, for instance, and the frame is not an  investment casting like RUGERs.

they shoot a lot better than Italian clones, as the chambers are more carefully drilled, as well as the bore, and the chambers and bore dimensions  are very adequate too.

the finish is much better, too.  They are made in the USA and they are allways collectable. Italian replicas, unlike german, belgian or spanish ones, have no collector value thought they are well made in general, but just cant compare with the original. Even their blueing is quite forgettable.

A complete newbies point of view ... I chose Ruger New Vaqueros. It seems a good and safe way to start. No need to put the gun in half cock to load, and then full cock to place it down on an empty chamber. There is enough to remember that I'd like the safe simplicity of the Ruger. Rugers are built like tanks too.

Look, I just want to dress like a cowboy and shoot stuff, the Rugers seem to be a good way to start doing that. If I even get good or want to be more authentic then I'll get new guns. They are "authentic enough" for me!

I picked up a used pair of EMF Hartfords.  Why?  The guy selling them was getting out of CAS, so he was selling his gear.  So I got the pair of them, with a bag of spare parts, a spare barrel and cylinder, and two holsters for $500.  He had them slicked up by a smith a while back, so hammer and trigger pull are smooth like buttah.

I'm Shooting Ruger New Model Vaqueros in 357 now.  For history, I started off with an unknown Mfg. 1858 replica and a Uberti 1860 army.  Next step was to an EMF Dakota in 44 Spl. and then added a Ruger OM Vaquero in 44 Mag.  After a while, I ended up with another Ruger OM Vaquero in 44 Mag and retired (sold) the EMF.  Developed Carpal Tunnel problems and arthritis in my hands and went to Armi San Marco colt clones that had been well used and tuned and shot them until they wore out the second time.  Finally ended up with the New Model Vaqueros and have been running them box stock for the past few years.  i like the Rugers because I am not having to repair them as often (none yet) and it I want to I can shoot them with some stout loads outside of CAS.

I may get a pair of 5-1/2" Open tops in 38spl some day just to be different, but with my son now shooting with my wife and I, that is a long time down the road.

Gonna run around on this one for a minute too.  Haven't been here before and don't know why not.

Currently I have Six or Seven sets of Main Match guns.  They are all Cap Guns and they are all Snubbies.  44s and 36s.

Because Snubbies are just so incredibly COOL!!

I use Rugers (Bisley).  They are tough, work fine out of the box and lots of parts to slick them up.

Just for fun though every now and then I take the Beretta Laramies out.  Lot's of fun at the unloading table, snap open, pistol clear in seconds.

Thanks Cmaker!

If you like those, maybe you'll also like my backups...1858 Remingtons with Kirst converters and bone grips.

More nice toys Roy.  But ...... Unfortunately ..........
Remington beat my middle finger like a rented mule.  Gunfighter ..... Both middle fingers.  Just can't shoot Remingtons.  Oh well.

Tried to post some photos of my toys, but the pictures are too big to post dagnabbit.  I'll figure out how to post pix yet.

Coffinmaker, he means trim the PICTURES, not the barrels! You've probably trimmed the barrels short enough!
