Oh, and my trade was just finalized. Threw some guns up for trade on my gunboard and a guy came at me with this:

45 Colt (hee!) with a 45 ACP cylinder as well. 1976 vintage, has "MADE IN THE 200th YEAR OF AMERICAN LIBERTY" stamped on the barrel. Woulda preferred a shorter barrel, but you can't look a gift 45 Colt in the mouth I suppose....

Nice score on the 45 Colt. Getting the box and papers is a plus also.
The Bisley frame is a love it / hate it thing. After trying one out, I never looked back.
Here is some reading for you regarding your new toy and caliber:
