Also this...which is just as awesome but lacks the derp.
I went to the auction page when it completed and the Burgess shotgun went for something like $19,000.

It seems a bit retro for .45 ACP to get used in a revolver, you know that? But it's a good cartridge and I guess a lot of guns have been designed for it (i.e. the Thompson submachine gun).

I don't know if I'd put a pistol down between those two. They don't much like each other...

There's no ammo though. I made sure there was no ammo within reach because I knew I'd dry-fire it during on camera.

That it headspaces .45 ACP is a neat trick. You mention that it cant use moon clips, does it chamber .45 Auto Rim? (I'd expect not but I was wondering). Have you looked at getting the sights adjusted to compensate for the off target shooting or is it something you can compensate for?

The rim of 45 Auto Rim is too thick. It's the same story on the new Ruger Redhawk .45 ACP / .45 LC
, which does use a moon clip, but not a thick enough one to accomodate 45 Auto Rim. I think Auto Rim only goes into 1917s and maybe Smith&Wesson Model 22.
