'Might' is an operative word.

There's no telling how long a frame made primarily of wrought iron may or may not last, because it takes a battering when fired.

Keith ruined a lot of old SAAs, and they were a lot newer back then, than they are today.

But hey, it's your eyes and hands...

If you want to load like Keith - buy a Ruger.

Scouts Out!

Howdy Willy.  I am not a gunsmith.  But my opinion is that the modern cylinder and barrel might keep the gun from "exploding" with hot loads but the frame might distort.

I put a Colt hammer in my ASM, too.  Works very well!

I just converted a Uberti  black powder frame 45 colt to 44 special..  New cylinder and new SAA colt 44 special barrel.
What I was wondering about was ,,What if someone converted a black powder ( Pre 1896 ) model P to 44 special,,Would it still be safe to shoot some of those 44 Keith loads of the 1920s amd 30s in it,,seeing as it is the cylinder that is the weak link in the black powder only pre 1896 guns ?

Evening Y'all, Have been busy watching the grand daughters who took turns being sick this week. Shot my last CAS match of the year last Sunday. Going to clean the guns and put them up for the winter.Hope I remember how to use them come spring time.

The 1909's were all in .45 Colt.  Retired or not you should treat yourself to a Colt, you'll never go back to the S&W.
