Agreed.

I love the old Colt revolvers but they really aren't good for "modern" plinking. Add in the fact the early DA Colt designs are weak with non-existent parts, and it makes them a tough sale. Even pre-war2 guns are iffy in the parts department.

Enjoy the "new" Colt, it looks like a great, all original surviving example.
