    Bisley

    Great Article... I recently picked up this Bisley. I should here back from Colt tomorrow on the details. No proof marks, so I am sure it stayed on this side of the pond.

    Yeah, there's just not much six-gun trickery you can accomplish with a Bisley like you can with a SAA, (or an N frame S&W for that matter) but I like em a lot!..and the era they represent.

    I wonder if Jim Martin ever did any fancy gun moves with a Bisley. I find them very cumbersome to handle. They do point well.

    I used to have a late 50s Guns Magazine with an article written by a cowboy guy in Texas who preferred a Colt Bisley but with a SAA hammer spur on it. It showed him holding the gun two hand with a home made looking holster on. That name "Walter Rogers" rang a bell. Then reading the Bisley article it said Rogers "had the "trigger" spur" modified higher" and shot two handed. Knowing they meant "hammer spur" I now know that was him.

    Thanks for such a great article! I always had a genuine Colt SAA on my Grail Gun list and was able to trade for a nickel Bisley last year in .38 WCF and I do love the beast.

    I had an Uberti Bisley for a while and discovered putting an old Pachmayr grip adapter on it improved my hand placement. Also, while I know the most popular Colt chambering was .32-20, most I've seen were in .38-40. Odd.

    Fantastic article from a great publication. Guns and American Handgunner are the BEST off the shelf firearms magazines going. I've been a long time subscriber and will continue to do so. I know all the info is now available online but, I can't quite cross the point where I'm ready to discard my old issues. Maybe there's some brand loyalty too, as I've known a few of the writers over the years and even won a gun of the month many years ago.

    Showing Terry's superbly engraved Bisley is very cool! I've only got one Bisley that I picked up early this year, a 1907 .45lc model. When I get some time, I want to take it out shooting. It passed the "phone conversation inspection" with Jim Martin, so now I need to find the time and some lighter cowboy loads.

    I shot an original Bisley in .38-40 in cowboy action shooting in the 90s. To me, it handled much better than the SAA, and it's low hammer was much easier to cock and shoot quickly. I think it's just what you get used to. But they did create the Bisley to be better handling than the SAA, not worse.
