Ruger Blackhawk Convertible (single action) 45LC/45ACP
Ruger® New Model Blackhawk® Convertible Single-Action Revolver Models
I know its not a very common round for revolvers--the most well known appears to be the S&W 625,
Who else manufactures revolvers in .45ACP and does anyone have any experience/thoughts on those?
I like the .45 ACP round in general but am looking into picking up 1st revolver thus my curiosity
Edit: also, is Smith and Wesson currently offering the 625 in any model other than the Jerry Miculek special...personal taste, just not a fan :P
S&W currently makes a couple of .45 ACP revos: the 625JM and 625PC. Very similar but the 625PC has a slightly shorter cylinder for slightly less bullet jump to the barrel, and a different, lighter, profile barrel. I have both and both are very accurate and fun to shoot.
S&W also made a blued older revo that was originally intended as a bullseye gun, the 25-2. I believe they went out of production in the early '80s. You could consider yourself lucky if you found one.
My latest edition to my gun case is the Ruger .45 Colt/.45 ACP Revolver.
Having to do some smithing on it however,due to the .45 ACP cylinder
not being large enough in diameter to accept my cast bullets.
This is a common problem when obtaining one of these revolvers.
It accepts factory round nose just fine and if that's what you're after,
I would suggest this gun.If you cast,as I do,plan on doing a little
work on the .45 ACP cylinder.
I also am fond of the dual cylinder Ruger Blackhawk series. Both cartridges shoot very well. And the single actions don't require moon clips, the two rounds both chamber the same.
