    Colt Peacekeeper .357

    Ever since the mid 80's, I thought this was the definitive .357 (in my eyes).

    The first time I saw one in person, it was at a gun show in Phoenix (Small Arms Review building took most of my time there ).

    Not until I moved back to MT in '02 was I to see another one. I was at the local gun shop waiting for a customer to finish a trade and glanced to see what he was trading. There on the counter was one of these Peacekeeper's I had always wanted. So patiently I waited until he was finished, ran up to the counter and asked "How much?"

    "How's about $250.00"?

    "I'll take it!"

    And here it is:

    LeMat,
    Really an interesting and scarce gun.
    That was the dollar-value of the Century, IMHO.
    Neat post!

    Re: Colt Peacekeeper .357

    I gotta admit, that there is the only real steal I've ever gotten. I generally pay too much for something because I have a bad case of the "I want it now!" syndrome.

    When I got out of the service, I bought an Anaconda in 45 Colt with the 4" barrel (this was back in the fall of '93 I believe). I think I paid around $450.00 for it.

    Well, I ended up trading a buddy for something and he still has it. Little did I know that they're worth a billion dollars now. (

    Now I gotta figure out how to finagle him back out of it.

    Well, to be honest, terribly.

    Perhaps I just haven't found the right load for it yet, but it's all over the paper. I know it's not me and I'm just going to keep experimenting with loads until I find one that it likes to shoot. I know it's out there somewhere.

    But the trigger - man that trigger is the sweetest I have ever had.

    Right now it's down with a bound extractor rod spring. Somehow, it got all bound up and I need to find a replacement. I took it out and can't for the life of me figure out why it happened. One day, I pushed the ejector and it just bound up. It still ejects just fine, but now I have to pull the rod back manually.
