I agree, have two .44-40 with 4,75" barrel from 3rd generation which are my favorites and I have two Peacemaker Commemorative in .44-40 with 7,5" barrel. I love the .44-40 cartridges and have several Winchester, one Whitney and one Colt rifle in that caliber. I also have one Uberti SAA with 4,75" barrel in .44-40
Just hang on there! It would make and excellent stable mate to the 1920 .41 Colt Army Special here. I often wonder how it came to be in the deep dark hills of eastern Kentucky. Is it a coincidence, but do the .41 caliber Colts seem to show up more often in places where there are mine troubles? Seems like several went to the Anaconda mine in the 1880s?I want one of those so bad! What year is that one? One of these days I'll find one - no rush. I've even bought a few boxes of ammo when I stumbled on them, just so I'm ready. If you ever tire of "testing" that one out, you know I'm just a PM away.
I'm in Elizabethtown. Just about 10 miles due south of this landmark. Mingo has some colorful history too. A pretty famous squabble over I pig, as I recollect. Both sides crossed the Tug to visit mischief upon the other.Old Tanker, I fit your last post interesting. Whereabouts are you in KY? I grew up in Bloody Mingo County, WV. A river divided our town. The north side was WV. The south side was KY. There was a plenitude of large frame S&W revolvers in pawn shops there in the 1960s.
