I can say I never ever heard of a 38-40 until I bought my first Colt SAA in that caliber that was made in 1905. I learned it had a nice recoil and isn't a .38 afterall. I fell in love with it and though the barrel is a sewer pipe it still rings steel plate at 25yrds with some impact! I even take the old SAA out on open carry duty in gun belt from time to time. I think I read that the 38-40 has regained some popularity among the Cowboy Action Shooting crowd, I don't know for sure but it certainly surprised me. Great to see your tools at work!
