.45 Colt vs. .44 Magnum | Guns for Sale
The .45 Colt has been around long enough to have a solid reputation, since 1873 in fact. It has fought in numerous wars and proved reliable in all. The only blight on its service record was the original frames would not withstand additional pressure. It was this fact that led to the development of the .44 Special which in turn gave rise to the .44 Magnum. Today’s guns for sale are engineered with precision for strength, durability and accuracy.
