I had one in 22lr back in 1958, it was well made and it was the same size as their 45 cal version. I have no idea what the going rate is on them these days, I paid 70.00 for mine, but like I said that was in 1958. I was very happy with it.
I do know that both Elmer Keith and John Taffin have written well about them, and had custom guns built on them and so forth, and I don't think either of those guys would have wasted their time or money on junk. They were pretty much the "only game in town" if you wanted a new single action revolver before Ruger came out with the Blackhawk.
