It is not strong enough. The 45 Colt is a 14.0K PSI cartridge. The 454 Casull 65.0K PSI and the 444 Marlin 51.5K PSI. What the CJ needs is a SAAMI length 45 Colt cylinder. I was glad to get rid of mine.
Yes the raging judge would be great but will the stock and fore arm from the circuit judge fit the larger frame?. And what about the blast shield and barrel I'm assuming the barrel from a CJ would work eh?
YES!!!!! A Raging Circuit Judge. Use the Raging Judge frame, thread on a longer barrel, and add a good stock...a synthetic stock??? That would be awesome! I would definitely buy one...be a great survival carbine, even in bear country.
