Actually, the cartridges are .45 ACP (automatic Colt Pistol) and .45 Colt (the cowboy era revolver cartridge. There is not really a Colt 45 Long. Can a revolver shoot both? Some can- they are chambered for the Colt .45 -but to shoot .45 ACP they need a "half moon clip"- a strip of metal that holds 3 of the shorter .45 ACP cartridges. 2 of those fill a 6 shot revolver. The PISTOL (not revolver) that shoots the .45 ACP cannot shoot the .45 Colt- no groove for the extractor to pull a fired cartridge out of the chamber, and it is too long.
Nope. The .450 is a belted cartridge.
the judge fires 45 colt which is the same as 45 long colt not to be confused with 45 acp it also fires 410 shot shells
life was not long with 'one' shot..........life improved with the colt revolver.............
The .45 Schofield can be fired in a .45 Long Colt revolver, but the .45 Long Colt cannot be fired in a .45 Schofield revolver.
No. A .357 Magnum revolver (not an automatic, lever action, or anything else with a headspaced chamber) can fire .38 S&W Special ammo, but not .38 Long Colt.
R L Wilson's book on Colt has one.
It's a revolver made by Taurus. It is available in 2 1/2 or 3 inch cylinders and a couple of different barrel lengths. It will fire a .410 shotgun shell or a .45 Colt (commonly call ".45 Long Colt")
No. From page 56 of the Taurus catalog there is no SAAMI specification for +P in .45 Long Colt caliber, therefore the warranty will be void if so called +P is fired.http://www.taurususa.com/2009catalog/?catalog_page=56
Proofhouse.com has Colt sn data.
simply put .... no... you need long caliber bullets to fit in the chamber properly Actually, if you have some half moon clips, you can shoot .45acp in a .45LC. You will not be pleased with the results though. Buy some .45 LC ammunition please.
