Erik and I doing some shooting yesterday afternoon at 15 yards. His time to ever shoot a revolver. Top group is his, with one shot being double action.
Half of mine were double action and the other three single. 45 ACP

    Very Nice!!

    The grips look good; how do they feel when shooting? I'm considering a set of those.....

    Has anyone here used 45 Auto Rim brass very much?
    I have been told that brass life is pretty short with it.

    I bought one box of AR loaded rounds back when I bought my first 1917. Never reloaded it

    BTW, VERY nice revolver. I want one!

    You have many cool guns.

    This is the first one I've been envious of.

    No, I thought about it, but realized I can put up with the Moon Clips better than maybe getting AR brass mixed in with .45 ACP brass, another thing to worry about sorting.

    Also, my 625 will fire without the use of a Moon Clip, others say theirs aren't reliable without them. Unloading is slow without them, though.

    Is that a lightweight version? If so, how is the handling/recoil feel?

    I thought about trying some auto rim ammo, then decided it was too expensive.

    That is a perfect wheel gun.
