I have some of both. I have more 44 specials. Two reasons. First whether it`s safe or not those paper thin cylinder walls over the cylinder notches scare me even if they are said to be safe. Second, with the .45 colts, it`s like hitting the jackpot if the measurements between the cylinder and barrel are actually compatible. The .44 specials you dont hear of that problem.
I have a .45 colt. The first time I took it out I had to pound out the fired factory ammo cases plus they were scary swelled!
I had bought the gun used but looked new. I sent it back to colt with the request for a cylinder with the removable bushing.
The gun came back with the old cylinder PLUS a new one with the removable bushing NUMBERED to the gun! They didn't charge me a dime! The 45 colt has the wood grips, the 44 special the gutta percha.
