    7.5" Two serial # prefix .45 NM Blackhawk
    OAL 1.976"
    Cylinder 1.702"
    Diameter 1.730"

    5.5" Two-serial # prefix SS .45 NM Blackhawk
    OAL 1.977"
    Cylinder 1.702"
    Diameter 1.730"

    4-5/8" Two-serial # prefix .45 OM Vaquero
    OAL 1.979"
    Cylinder 1.701"
    Diameter 1.730"

    Where OAL = total length from tip to tip. (front of gas seal to rear face of ratchet)
    Cylinder = just front face of cylinder to rear face of cylinder, ignoring gas seal and ratchet.
    Colt 1860, it just feels right.
