Just picked this one up. Wasn't looking but got it for 285. Hate to pass up a good deal. Made in '07 and never fired. The pic doesn't do it justice. It doesn't even have a ring on the cylinder.

Congratulations! I love mine, though I've always had a problem with it printing quite high. Still quite a blast -- and I mean literally a BLAST -- to shoot! Certainly attention-getting on the line!

i enjoy mine quite a bit.
my handloads will shoot about 4" at 100 yards, but the rear sight is bottomed out.
factory loads (american eagle) shoot about 6" at 100 yards, but the rear sight doesn't have to quite be bottomed out. my handloads run less velocity.
the gun is a riot - hope you enjoy yours!

This pistol is loud enough to make your ears bleed. Do not plan on making this your house gun without a pair of Wolf's Ears.

First, why is this in Rifle Country? It should be in it's rightful Revolver home! :p
Now that's out, congrats! I have one, but it's from '76, shot lots, used as a hammer at least once, paid $160 for it. Nice and loud, but little recoil to speak of. I have yet to actually accuracy test mine, so have no idea how good it is there, but I tend to shoot it just for fun anyhow, and it's certainly been good enough for that to this point so I'm happy. :) Didn't know they were still making them last year, either. Neat.
