Not just no, but HELL NO! The .44 mag case is about 1/8" longer than the .44 Special and is supposed to prevent magnum rounds from going in a Special gun, but once in a blue moon a magnum round can be forced in. A kaboom is the likely result.

Cobra123, welcome to Coltforum!

NO!!! Only shoot ammo in a good condition gun, which gun is marked for the ammo that you use in it.

Using ammo too powerful for the handgun is a good way to blow up the gun, and perhaps cause personal injury or death as the gun is damaged or destroyed. Bad idea.

First of all WHY would you want to shoot .44 MAG in a Colt SAA ? When you can buy either a SA or DA Ruger or S&W in 44 mag for less than $550. You can shoot 44/40 with a new cylinder in the 44 special. For a nice light load there is the .44 Russian. You do not need to change anything to shoot the .44 Russian.
