Looking to purchase 45 Colt for plinking. Dont want to spend a fortune but yet should be quality revolver.
Looked at a Cimarron at local shop - I believe $649 was tag and thats it so far.
Any recommendation(s) would be appreciated.
Thanks

The Ruger New Vaquero is good. And of course the Blackhawk unless you want something more in line with the SAA

Thanks will take a look at the Vaquero- certainly doesn’t need to in th SAA line up. Plinking steel at home and maybe try my hand at some small game around the property so not looking for anything too special.
Thanks

I got a New Vaquero on the basis of talking to Cowboy Action shooters, "They don't break.", but that was back when they were reasonably priced. Today I would take a hard look at a Great Western II, the one made by Pietta and a close clone of a real SAA. A simpler lockwork than the New Vaquero, no safety mechanisms. I kind of like that

Thanks for the advices. If anyone has a lead on actual firearm I would appreciate that as well.
At this point I’d consider all - still studying up!

As 5thShock mentioned, the GW II by Pietta is a damn good S/A as is a Uberti/Taylor's models. I have both in .45 Colt. Look at Tombstone Tactical for sinlge action revolvers. You'll find something there. These are very good Italian replicas for a decent price. Hope this helps.

you should hear about all the Rugers we break in Fast Draw, once a friend had one he had shot thousands of wax bullets thru at a match had the hammer break in half
