I had one and stupidly traded it off.

Cole,

I had one and let it go. I found that it wasn't the greatest for CAS, the way the action is set up. It's a unique gun, but I can live with out it.

You mean like the replica? If I was to use one for real in Cowboy Action, I'd want one like my old one. One that's not collector-grade. I'd get it rebuilt completely and use the crap out of it. The new one looks good and would be great for somebody more into the costuming/characterization aspect of your sport, but they don't feel as good as some other guns. I'm sure a SAA would be a lot faster. At the very least, the grips on the replica need to be thinned down.
