    Hold them both in your hands, at the same time. Look equally at both; no time limit. Put one down; keep the other.

No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”

    I would sit down with the cousin and get his input. With either gun your a big winner. Guns arent worth a family fight. (Except for the ones my ex stole). I cant tell you how many I have and have had pass through my hands. I wanted them all. But the truth is the majority of them have only been shot a few times and have spent 99.99% of their time sitting in my dark safe. Then someday we find ourselves a old man and wonder what we should do with them or what worthy is going to get them and will they care at all? If a person has just one or a couple they get used a lot and mean more. When you have 50ish none got used to the point they deserve family heirloom status. I aint making points here, am I?

    Hard choice, but I would have to take the SAA due to the close family connection.

    Well my older cousing who got to pick ahead of me originally choose the gun I was hoping to get. But he has changed his mind and asked if I would be ok with him picking the NM instead. I am completely fine with that as it means I get the 1896 .45 that my grandfather carried on the ranch and was the first single action I ever shot!

    I am thrilled!

    I like what Oberon said, take the SAA and buy the NM from your cousin if you can.

    Whether picking a car, suit, or wife, pick what you want, and not what someone else wants.

    This is about as sound advice as anyone can receive. I have found myself buying guns I thought were mediocre simply because everyone was and I thought the thing to do. After awhile I think why did I buy that, I don’t even really like it that much. Everyone is impressionable at least a little if they admit it or not. The Colt python is a good example. Me personally I really do like the python, but I saw SAA collectors and woodsman collectors dumping their guns at a bargain to buy inflated “snake” guns comparatively at the time. This was a phenomenon in the gun world I personally have never seen before. I think it just comes down to the old saying keeping up with the Jones. Some want to beat the Jones. Me personally, I’d just as soon the Jones move to the nice gated community on the other side of county and prosper there . By using Johnny’s advice, I think the OP already knows which he likes better.
