My revolver collection is complete


January 2, 2003, 07:16 PM
Now I can go back to getting more semi-auto's :)

Let's see, I have a:

Smith and Wesson model 66 4" .357 magnum
Smith and Wesson model 27 4" .357 magnum
Smith and Wesson model 360 Scandium .357 magnum
Ruger Single Six .22 lr/magnum

I don't need anymore, a good basic collection.

Okay okay, maybe a Smith and Wesson .44 magnum N-frame down the road.

Or a Smith and Wesson model 686,

Or a Smith and Wesson model 586,

Or one with 2-1/2" barrel,

Or one with 3-1/2" barrel,


NO! Must stop.

No revolver collection is complete without a K22.

you need a 13 3" or 65 3"

January 2, 2003, 08:37 PM

No 44Magnum?
No 45Colt?
No 454Casull?
No 475Linebaugh?
No 500Linebaugh?

Your revolver collection is kinda light. :D

Everytime I think mine's complete, I discover another gaping hole in it!

January 2, 2003, 09:03 PM
I hate to burst your bubble but if you LIKE REVOLVERS your collection will NEVER be COMPLETE.:D

January 2, 2003, 09:09 PM
I firmly don't believe ANY revolver collection is ever complete. There are always interesting new revolvers out there that can enhance a collection. The limiting factor, of course is price. Most of us can't afford to buy EVERY single revolver model in every single caliber. ;)

You obviously haven't been bitten by a snake yet. I've been bitten by both the Python and the Anaconda (both with 6 inch barrels).

As others have collection is ever complete! I know for I am collecting guns of all types. I am truly a gunaholic. One is too few and there are never enough owned by me.

Right. Suuure... ;)

Hard to stop collecting revolvers because there is always one more to add. So many models and so little resources.

January 3, 2003, 01:27 AM
You could get some large bore single action revolvers , I didn't see any of those in your collection .

No revolver collection is complete until you have every single revolver ever made.

psst... you're competing against every one else here at THR, all the other websites and the mfgs, and finally numerous govt. entities.

Done ???? There always something new coming out.:banghead:

I gotta agree, no Smith collection is complete without a K22.

Greeting's All-

Well, I need a few more revolver's in my collection; to keep
these company:

a) Smith & Wesson "Chief's Special" model 60 circa 79-80
(- nothing) with a 2" barrel and "R" s/n prefix

b) Smith & Wesson 6" barrel 686-5 L-frame .357 magnum


c) Smith & Wesson 5" barrel 629-5 N-frame .44 magnum

These few Smith's are getting mighty lonely on these cold,
dark night's! May be able to sneak a few older Smith's by
the wife before too long.:uhoh:

Best Wishes,
Ala Dan, N.R.A. Life Member

My collection is very small, but I"m happy with the ones I have.

1937 Brazilian contract 3rd model Hand Ejector
Circa 1946~1948 2" M&P
4" M28 (no dash)
2" M36-7

I want lots more, but two holes I really want filled in the collection are a 3" M13 or a 2 1/2" M19 and a 4" or 5" M25 in either .45LC or .45ACP.

If I can get the above two, I'll be happy.

"My revolver collection is complete "

How sad. :( I hope I never end up in this situation.

January 3, 2003, 01:15 PM
It's complete -- for now!

January 3, 2003, 05:06 PM
Until you have one of everything your not done.

And don't you need TWO of the ones you really like? You have two hands!

And...what the heck TWO of the ones you don't like as much (hard to say there are any revolvers a person wouldn't like) if you find a deal.:)

January 3, 2003, 05:33 PM
Attention all: I am really Bill Gates, and I have decided I WILL buy two of each revolver ever made in every caliber. Except for the NEW Smith and Wessons of course - don't want to support companies that strike deals with the federal government. I hate the federal government...but that's another topic.

January 3, 2003, 05:36 PM
:D :D :D

Thanks for all the suggestions guys (and gals).

I shouldn't have said the collection was complete - just that I got a good sample of some revolvers I want for now.

To those interested, I got all my Smith revolvers used, private sale, EXCEPT for the Scandium - that was new. I'm sorry. :(

By the way, I love the revolvers I got.

Every time I buy a firearm I tell my wife that this is the “one” that will complete my collection.:)

February 27, 2003, 01:46 AM
You can't honestly have a "collection" without a S&W 686 of some sort. You should really have a 686, 686+, and 627. That would give you a 6, 7, and 8 shot .357.

Personally, here's mine:

S&W 60 (converted for moonclips)
S&W 686 (converted for moonclips)
S&W 686+ (yep, moonclips)
S&W 627 (Jerry Miculek Performance Center edition)
S&W 625 (.45ACP, factory moonclips)
S&W 629 (need to convert to moonclips)
Colt Anaconda

On the prowl for a S&W 500. It has to pass the :cuss: drop test for California. :banghead:

February 27, 2003, 10:03 AM
Complete, Hah!!!Hah!!!Hah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

February 27, 2003, 10:41 AM
You're lucky, I've only just begun :rolleyes:

February 27, 2003, 12:05 PM

Why don't you stop by this weekend and I'll take you to the range. You really need to try out this really neat 4" M24 in .44 Special I have right here. I even have two or three sets of grips for it: Fitz Gunfighter, Ahrends Cocobolo, and rubber Hogues.

Here, just hold it a second. See how good these Ahrends feel? Now try these Fitz, isn't this checkering nice ?? Just fits right in your hands. OK, now shoot a few rounds of these 240 LSWCers. Nice... Now the 300 gr LSWCers; surprised? Not too bad.

Next week we'll try something else :evil:

February 27, 2003, 12:27 PM
Whatever you do DO NOT get a copy of the STD CATALOG of S&W. You will get the collector's jones for sure. I just made that mistake. Now the color pictures are all covered in drool. :uhoh:

February 27, 2003, 03:49 PM
revolvers. large frame, medium frame, and if you can find one one of the little snubbie small frames. No collestion is complete without at least one pistol pac Dan Wesson in both 44 and 357.
also a mataba would be a good idea as well it is unique in the revolver world after all.

No Pythons?

No Diamondbacks?

No Dan Wessons?

February 28, 2003, 12:07 AM
I like the Ruger Single Six.

February 28, 2003, 08:08 AM
Forgot to get an L frame (686).

February 28, 2003, 10:04 AM
I mentioned Dan Wessons in the post just above yours. Excellent guns everybody should have at least one!

Face it your never done .Ive been saying that for the last 10 years.

March 1, 2003, 10:01 AM
Oh yeah, you'll need a cowboy gun or two to have a decent collection. No such thing as complete...

March 1, 2003, 05:49 PM
Roger the K22.
And, while you're at it,
try on a 1917 Colt 45!;)
