Why was it not continued with the 1873?

Nobody ever talks about the hammer safety notch (the first click) either. It seems to me you could carry the SAA , or OM Rugers for that matter, with a full six in pretty relative safety. The hammer notch is very robust and would truly require tremendous blow to break.

I think the skipped chamber thing has been over romanticized through the years. IMO.

I do note my new Cimirron/Uberti Open Top in .38 has a very well hidden firing pin “lock out” as well as that safety notch on the hammer timing. I just noted it in the owners manual.
