I have been wanting an SAA cal. 45 Colt. I will use it as a shooter, and I cannot afford a huge price. I have been looking on Gunbroker, and I see many of the more affordable SAA 45 shooters have the 7.5 inch barrel. I have previously held SAA's with shorter barrels, but have never had my hands on one with the 7.5 inch barrel. I know that 7.5 inches was the original length of the army issue revolver. But how do they feel? Well balanced? Comfortable to shoot? I am reluctant to bid on one of these without some input from those who know.
