Winchester made them to force Colt out of the long gun business. They remain in the Winchester collection in Cody.

Yep, that's the one I was talking about.
That's pretty strange; not only is it a swing-out single action but it swings out on the wrong side too! Probably works out better that way with their existing lockwork.

Btw, all except one (that I know of) traditional single action revolvers are left-handed guns. That's because Samuel Colt was a southpaw, according to what I have heard.

Fwiw, my take on the set up is that it was designed in the day for the cavalry which used the saber in the right hand, handgun in the left. Colt knew his market was primarily to the military with the civilian market secondary.

As a southpaw I have always appreciated Col. Colts SA loading design.

High Standard Sentinel is double action, and so are most RG revolvers. In fact some RGs are double action and don't have a swing out cylinder. RG did make a single action .22 revolver, but it didn't have a swing-out cylinder.

So my memory sucks.
One of those two made a swing out cylinder revolver that looked like a single action, but had the swing out cylinder. Yes, it was also double action capable.

On the subject of "modified" SAs, a cowboy gun with a full four-fingered grip (as opposed to boot, birds head, or bisley grip) might be interesting. Would be a bit sacrilegious, though.

Åh, att fler människor var som sina hundar.

H&R made a revolver like that. IIRC, they were 9-shot .22s.

I'm pretty sure Hogue used to make a wood grip with finger grooves for the Super Blackhawk.
