Our Assessment: In the early years, It was very rare to find a Smith & Wesson chambered in .45 Colt because of a gentleman’s agreement between Colt and S&W to chamber very few pistols in .45 Colt for S&W and .44 S&W Special for Colt. Now things are a little different and you can get this more modern stainless S&W with beautiful mechanics and a ported barrel chambered in .45 Colt.
