My Thunder Ranch 21-4

This is my new to me Thunder Ranch Model 21-4 44 Special. It is very special to me. I thank John Taffin for causing me to want a full size 44 special and Clint Smith for persuading Smith and Wesson to build it.

No I haven't had the opportunity to fire it yet, but it's coming!

forindooruseonly: That's a cool gun. I had to google it as I'd never seen a revolver with a flat cylinder. I thought either the camera or my eyes were playing tricks on me. Those have to be very rare.

Thanks! They certainly didn't manufacture many, but I'm surprised how often one pops up for sale. It's always been a niche gun, the only difference is that now the niche is collectors rather than target shooters, and despite the name collectors tend to pass stuff around quite a bit lol..

Mine is a longer 8 inch barrel version, the one in the link you posted at the NRA museum is the much more rare 6 inch barrel model, of which less than 500 were produced IIRC. There were about 2,000 like mine.

It's a fun handgun to shoot - really accurate and it kinda blows peoples' minds at the range.

Hello friends and neighbors // My 50th BDay Present to me.
S&W327andJSalleyfigher.jpg
Colt6inPython1978.jpg

Been wanting both the S&W 327NG and a 6" Python for a long time.
Finding the J Salley fighter in a pawn shop was a nice surprise too.

Content,

I bought my first 2 5/8" PC627 UDR when they were re-released 4/10. I went in to get a 327NG 10/10 - ended up with a second UDR - they are moonclip ready - great for reloads. I also have the 5 Star Firearms speedloaders and loading plates - great product. Here is my first one with some Ahrends retro targets:



Here they both are - gripped with some nice PC Shop grips - and a custom holster:



Finally, I found some 7-shooters that cost a bit less than the typical 686P...



Okay, an 1895 Nagant has a bit stiffer trigger... and is a bit slower to load/unload, much less, find ammo to fit it! Add the cost of my C&R ffl, to have them sent to the house, and renewals, to the cost - inc s/h - of five of them, and it's still less than the $489 I spent on my one 686P. What was I thinking??

Hello friends and neighbors // Stainz - I always liked the PC but I'm cheap and like to wait on the right bargin.
I agree about the Moon Clips being faster. The rubber grips on mine get in the way a bit with these loaders.

I like your holster. for now I am using am old Hepco.
Locally there are none available so I am considering ordering the, S&W logo, Glaco from the S&W web site.
Who made yours?

I did not know you could obtain 5 Nagants for $489. That is a great deal. If I'm reading that correctly.

I considered myself lucky to find the 8/24/10 DOM ,S&W 327NG, w/ Tritium sights, plus accessories for $875 on Armslist and the 1978 Colt Python w/ box, plus acc. for $800 (the seller just happened to bring with him) all in one nice package.
S&W327package.jpgColt6inPython1978.jpg $1675 for everything in both pics., I'm content.

When I saw the condition of the Colt I grinned so wide it hurt.

Hello friends and neighbors // chez323-- Very nice pair.
Is that a 3" 629?

How does it handle?

Four Favorite Revolvers. 44 Special, a pair of 357's, and a 38. Each one makes me happy in its own way.

Content,

The PC627 UDR holster is from Ray at Lobo Leather. I bought the Nagants from a source when they were $65 inc holster, lanyard, screwdiver, & cleaning rod + s/h. The best deal now from a common source is ~$100.
