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.

I don't know how far you are from First Stop Guns in Rapid City but I bet they would have a nice Pietta or Uberti for a good price.

. All i can say is that it goes from one [bleep] show to another in the commie fornia area/ hollywood.
From their BS politics to the drama of the lifestyles of the rich and shameless.
However I wish all the best to all the families affected by this latest incident..

MaxBB, if you have large hands, take a look at Uberti Cattleman El Patron "Grizzly Paw" grips[Army grips]. Good looking revolver.

You should be sure to take some screwdrivers that fit when you go shooting. The screws are not usually tight in the clones that I own. First time out shooting I lost a frame screw.
