.45 Colt is pronounced forty-five Colt.
This caliber may also be known as .45 Long Colt or .45 LC (an obsolete designation to differentiate it from the shorter .45 Schofield - which is not featured in the game), more rarely 11.43x33mm R, or simply .45, though this last designation is not recommended, as there are many other chamberings that can be described as .45 caliber. It should also not be confused with .45 ACP.
There are 6 base weapons chambered in this caliber.
- Beretta Stampede Marshal
- Colt Single Action Army
- Pedersoli Howdah 45/410
- Ruger Redhawk
- Smith & Wesson Model 625-6
- Taurus Model 450Ti
