Love the old 1917 Smith. Big gun, easy to shoot, lots of fun. Gonna go Cowboy with an 1873 repo and do the same thing. Love my Springfield but there is just something about the bog bore revolvers. Mikey.
S&W 625s are great. Mine is a gem. The Ruger P-90 and P-97 are good, too (I prefer the P-90 of the two). I'd really like to try a steel framed Witness in .45 ACP, but that's way down the list. The Ruger convertible Blackawks in .45LC/.45ACP are good, too, IMHO.
Never shot a Sig .45 Auto, but if they made a Sig Pro in .45 ACP, I'd be all over that.
I don't know if you consider the Springfield SASS or the Pachmeyer Dominator non 1911s or not, but I have both. I haven't gotten them fitted to a 1911 frame yet, but I'm working on it. Also, I have a LAR Grizzly 45 Win Mag with conversions kits for 10mm, 357 Mag, 45 A.C.P. and 357/45 GWM. I love 'em all. The grizzly is very accurate and fun to shoot if you like big bangs.
Just picked up a FaireStar M-45. What a well built and SWEETR shooting little gun. Fed and functioned everythignbt from ball to mouse fart 185 gr SWC loads on it's first outing. Accuracy and felt recoil were also a pleasent surprise.
