I have always thought what is a perfect pair in revolvers. Mine is a S&W m65 and a S&W m642. What is your pair?

My 4" 686 (or 66) .357mag and it's "understudy" - a 4" 10-shot 617 .22LR.

I don't have a picture of them together, but it would be my Dan Wesson 715 4 VH and my Dan Wesson 722 4 VH. Exactly the same gun, different caliber. Both set up with virtually identical DA/SA trigger pull, same weight, size, sights, one in .357 Mag and one in .22 LR.

My "perfect pair" is a S&W 696 primary and a Charter Bulldog Pug for backup. .44 Spl times two. Iggy, you have a serious problem. I don't think there is a cure as yet. But thank you for the NICE photos. Those break tops are simply divine.

My matched pair are my Smith model 66 4" in .357 magnum and Smith 651 4" in .22 magnum, they aren't as pretty as some I've seen here. But they are deadly accurate. I have owned them both for a long time and accustomed to them.

I'd like to pair my 12-2 with a .38/44 but I don't have one yet. My only pair is a birdshead Uberti 3.5" with a stainless Blackhawk 5.5", both in .45LC. Iggy, love the pics. I'd love to add a Freedom Arms 83 in .454 to the mix, it's a better match to the Ruger.

Model 28, 4" and Model 36, square butt, 2".

Problem is, I only have the Model 36 at the moment. For the last ten years, I've always wanted a Model 28 4". I've passed on so many over the years. I used to laugh when someone was asking more than $400 for one. Now I look back and cry because everyone I see is over $550...

To me, a perfect pair of anything is two things that compliment each other by having each one fulfill a separate and distinct role, rather than two guns that are almost identical.

My perfect pair is a Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 Mag with 5.5" barrel, and a Ruger LCR in .38 Special.

I own neither. :D

March 10, 2013, 05:03 AM
if I'm going to have a pair, they're going to be functional and both serve a purpose... working off my own collection I'd go with my Ruger GP100 3" and my Dan Wesson 15-2 with 8" both in .357 mag - carry with ease when you want it, or reach out and touch something when you need it.

March 10, 2013, 06:15 AM
I would have to go with my 642-1 and my 629-4 6" barrel. I carry both of these on a regular basis (we have open carry in my state)

Pair? So far I am still recovering from the purchase of my first rimfire Korth model 24/. I am saving for another in .357 or a MR73 with a 6" barrel.

http://i189.photobucket.com/albums/z159/Andyd173/DSCF4995.jpg

Until then, the niche is perfectly filled by a S&W M14-2

The Single Six and .357 Blackhawk is a pair of pistols I'd certainly like.

For double action, I'd prefer a S&W 686 and 617.


Honestly, I'd like all four.

I like my Freedom Arms model 97 .357 for serious target shooting, silhouette competition and accuracy testing of proven loads. (my sports car of guns)

My GP100 is my all around revolver. Defensive use if needed, proof testing of handloads (don't want to blow up my F/A), and heavy load specialist. (my pick up truck)

A 642-2 and a 686-6 plus.

This is what I typically carry (sometimes it's a CZ 75D PCR rather than the 686)

They aren't pretty, but my little 642 and my 6" Model 28 are a perfect pair. One extreme to the other. Perfect for everything I need a revolver for, from plinking to target shooting, HD, predator protection and even CCW.

sixgunner455
March 13, 2013, 05:09 PM
As the OP has it. I have a 642, and a 3" 13-3. I could see me going for a 65, if I ever came across one when I could afford it.

eta: um, dang, that's a lot of revolvers. I think my wife would have a fit.

Well, I have one half - my 625 Mountain Gun in .45 Colt. To pair with it I'd like a 2" barreled K frame, probably a 64 or 65. That will be my perfect pair.

H.o.l.y. C.r.a.p! I feel woefully inadequate now. I have a new goal though: to have a large enough collection that the firearms get their own bed. If it wouldn't be so uncomfortable one might be tempted to roll around on that bed like a millionaire wallowing around on their money.

Beautiful collection.

I'm not completely sure which is my favorite or perfect revolver pair but I do have a few candidates.

How about a S&W K frame M&P and a J frame Chief's Special?

http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o26/ArchAngelCD/M10-M36s.jpg

Or maybe the perfect pair of revolvers are a set of more current J frames, a M640 and M642.

http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o26/ArchAngelCD/twins-1.jpg

http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o26/ArchAngelCD/twins-2.jpg

Or possibly a pair of Ruger New Vaqueros (the bottom two) along with their bigger sibling, and original larger Vaquero.

http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o26/ArchAngelCD/Three_SA.jpg

I like them all so I guess it's up to you to pick the ones you think are the perfect pair.
If pushed I would have to go with the M&P/Chief's Special pair!
