Can you fire 38 special round from a 38 long colt?
No, you cannot.
No. .38 Long Colt was the forerunner to .38 Special- and was originally a black powder cartridge. The .38 Special is more powerful- the .357 magnum is MUCH more powerful. Neither the Special nor the magnum should be fired in a gun chambered for .38 Long Colt. This is VERY dangerous.
.38 Special. It can also fire .38 Short Colt and .38 Long Colt. Do not attempt to fire .38 S&W from a .38 Special.
The .38 Special can fire .38 Special, or .38 Long Colt. It cannot fire the .38 S&W, which is fatter and shorter.
The Colt M1911 and the colt M1911A has only 1 caliber .45 or 45/100 of an inch. This round is also known as the colt .45 A.C.P. (all Colt pistols) It is a short round which differs from the .45 long round.
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.
They are the same exact round. When the .45 Schofield (S&W) round was introduced in the late 1800s people began to refer to the .45 Colt as the .45 Long Colt, or Long .45, because the .45 Schofield was shorter. The name may have changed for a while, but the actual round never did.
There are a dozen different cartridges with 38 in their name, and SOME are compatible with the .357 Magnum. A .357 will fire .38 Special, .38 Short Colt, .38 Long Colt- but NOT .38 S&W.
Maybe. You need to figure out which .38 your Colt is chambered in. .38 Short Colt and .38 Long Colt guns will not chamber a .38 Special. .38 Colt Special is the same as regular .38 Special. If you cannot tell which caliber it is you need to take it to a gunsmith and have him tell you.
The Colt DA 38 Model # 1901, can only use a 38 short, not a long or special.
The pistol fired the .38 Long Colt cartridge, not to be confused with the .38 Smith & Wesson Special (.38 Special), .38 Super, .38 Short Colt, or any other cartridge marked as .38 or .380. That is the only ammunition type which can be fired through this pistol. Current production .38 Long Colt ammo may be run through this pistol. However, I would advise you to have a competent gunsmith inspect the pistol to ensure… Read More
Although it can be done, DO NOT !! Never fire ammunition in a weapon that it is not chambered for.
Ordinary .410 shotguns CANNOT safely fire .45 Colt, .44 Magnum or any other cartridge. Stick to .410s. They are designed for a lower pressure, smaller projectile. No. Bad ju-ju. Don't.
The Colt Peacemaker was a variant of the Colt Single Action Army, which was available in over thirty calibers. The most famous of those calibers is what is now known as .45 Long Colt, which makes up the majority of First Generation Single Action Army production. .44-40 Winchester Center Fire, .38-40 Winchester Center Fire, and 32-20 Winchester Center Fire were also popular calibers. The Colt Single Action Army is still in production, and the ones… Read More
Colt (in both the 32 and 38) added "Colt New Police" to avoid advertising the S&W developments in 32 and 38 ammunition. The Police Positive Special will fire the old .32 S&W cartridge as well as the .32 S&WLong. You can also fire the old .32 Colt and Long Colt Cartridges (don't expect great accuracy). Why? Because these rounds use the same .312-313 bullet that are of the full case diameter, heeled variety like the… Read More
.38 Special, .38 Long Colt, .38 Short Colt. .38 S&W CANNOT be used in a .38 Special. .38 Special can be fired from a .357 Magnum weapon, but .357 Magnum cannot be fired from a .38 Special weapon.
Your weapon would take the 38 special. Be careful with the older Colt Double Action Revolvers. If the barrel indicates 38 "Special" - only then would it take that cartridge. Typically if the barrel states 38 New Police the revolver with take the 38 S&W ammunition, either short or long depending on the length of the cylinder (Colt could not bring themselves to roll stamp S&W on their revolvers. When the barrel shows just "38"… Read More
no with regard to cases. 45 long colt has a ridge that sets on end of cylinder. 45 acp is rimless. however, they do make a cylinder for the acp that can be used on colt single actions. i have just bought a uberti 45 and was told by the dealer "a very reputable" that a 45 colt, and a 45 long colt are exactly the same. it's when you add the acp that it… Read More
There are several .38 calibers out there which have had revolvers chambered for them. .38 Special and .38 Colt Special are the same thing, so if you have a .38 that is either one of those two the answer is yes. .38 S&W, .38 Short Colt, .38 Long Colt are not interchangeable with the .38 Special, so if you have an older gun that is one of those, the answer is no. If you can't… Read More
Unknown Belgian maker. These were copies of the Colt Model 1877, made in caliber .38 Colt Long. While a .38 Special WILL chamber, I would not reccomend shooting it.
Mine says. short-long & long rifle, right on the barrel.
You can fire a .45 ACP cartridge through a .45 ACP pistol - and only a .45 ACP pistol. The various .45 cartridges (.45 ACP, .45 Long Colt, .45 GAP, etc.) are not interchangeable with each other.
Its large round eyes and long sharp claws.
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
.38 Special, yes. Other .38 cartridges (such as the .38 Long Colt or .38 Super), no.
The original gatling gun shot a .45 long colt. But the more modern version invented by John Dylan shoots a .308 caliber rifle round. Also the larger gatling cannon shoots a 30mm round.
The .45 Long Colt is similar enough to the .410 shotshell that it is interchangeable in the Thompson Center Arms Contender family of handguns/rifles. This is the only firearm that I have personally owned that was specifically designed for this interchangability. If you have a .410 shotgun of any make or model, you should consult the owner's manual or contact the manufacturer (if possible) before firing .45 Long Colt ammunition it. The shotgun may have… Read More
A semi-automatic firearm will only fire one round per trigger pull, then the trigger must be released and pulled again to fire the next round. A fully automatic firearm will fire as many rounds as it has available as long as the trigger is pulled.
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.
Absolutely. It's a real Ruger Vaquero in .45LC. not a toy. Check with your local stocking dealer.
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")
'The Hand of God' - A reproduction Colt Peacemaker with a 4 3/4" barrel made by U.S. Fire Arms in caliber .45 Long Colt was the revolver used by Russell Crowe in the movie.
It depends. Many people say "38" when they are referring to the .38 special, so in that case, there is no difference, they are one and the same. However, there are several .38 caliber cartridges other than the .38 special. There is the .38 ACP, .38 long Colt, .38 short Colt, .38 S&W, .38 Super, and I think one or two others.
how 2 fix trigger on colt .22 long riffle
no, just 45 long colt, what is was made for
yes, if both weapons are for the 45 long colt cartridge
Colt never made a long gun called that. You will have to provide a detailed description to include: barrel length and profile (round, octagon, etc.) action type (pump, lever, semi-auto, etc.) caliber and all markings.
It has a round top and a long hallway from 25-30 meters long and there would be bunk beds and a 2 or 3 fire pits in the middle
Only if it's a .22 Long Rifle revolver. It's not compatible with the .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire.
The first 45 long colt lever rifle was made in 1985.
Proofhouse.com has Colt sn data.
Different names for the same cartridge.
There is no difference , there was a 45 short colt cartridge made for just a short time back in the early1900's but it quickly went away , however the name " Long Colt " just stuck .
No, it isn't. You won't get proper headspacing, and the end result could be catastrophic.
yes. but the seating die would have to be higher up then for the 45 acp. I have loaded 45 long colt with my 45 acp dies set.................also, need 45 long colt shell holder.........
R L Wilson's book on Colt has one.
Proofhouse.com has Colt sn data.
Most commonly used on military production ammo from the Lake City ordnance plant.
No, and you shouldn't even use. 38 Special ammo in it, either. If it was made in the 1800s, it was probably chambered in .38 Long Colt, and that is the only ammo which is compatible with that revolver.
There is a Texas based company called Bond Arms Inc. They make derringers in a variety of calibers. One is the 45 Long Colt. Due to the diameter of the 45 Long Colt and the 410 shotgun shell, the derringer will safely fire both shells. I have one. It is a blast to shoot. The quality of the firearm is excellent and it is not cheap. $400 plus.
None, other than a very few that are marked "45 Colt/ .410", such as a Thompson Contender, or Taurus Judge. Shooting .45 Colt or any other handgun cartridge in a .410 shotgun can be extremely dangerous. Can it be done? Yes. How many times can it be done before the shotgun fails, and injures you? Ah- THAT is the question- and no one has an answer for that.
