Why buy this instead of a Ruger or Smith

Not to say it's a bad company I've been around a few of there rifles and they seem well built. I was just thinking you could buy a super Blackhawk for less. School me.

My thoughts exactly. For that price you could get a Super

Blackhawk that is stronger and a better gun in every way. The Pietta gun is not even a real SAA due to adjustable sights and other features. It has no collector value so where are the positive points about this new revolver.

Any one have any idea what WB just said?

I’ll not poor-mouth it, it’s a new SA! I’ll be happy.

That don’t mean I’ll buy one, I’ll try anything once to say I did. BUT, if the chamber throats are sized .430” or so and the forcing cone is smooth and straight to a good bore without any tight spots, it could be a cut above. You don’t have to line bore to get good accuracy, just pay attention to the other accumulative influences.

I’d have preferred more of a sexy flat top style like an old Ruger or Colt New Frontier but I see why they built up the sight mortise. Lots of people might use this area for scope foundations too. The Italians rock their own style. I like the hammer.
