    I, too, may have been unable to resist, (depending on the price, of course). Looks very nice. Let us know how it shoots.

    I think I would have waited for one that was not upside-down. Be easier to shoot :what:

    Looks nice, well built and finished. Like that is all steel construction and a 12 shooter to boot!

    Sharp dog, were is your spirit of adventure? The inverted ones are more of a challenge. :cuss:

    I did run some rounds through it out in the yard. Definitely minute of dirt clump at 40 yards and absolutely no recoil. I will try it on paper once the weather breaks.

    looks very nice. just broke down and bought an el-cheapo 6.5" heritage rough rider 22lr/22mag combo. $160. Surprised at how accurate and sweet shooting it is. I shot some CCI Quiet 22lr and it was surprisingly quiet. I guess it's the joy of actually hitting the target that drove me to shoot more single action :thumbup:

    I bet that it was one that got liberated from Australia when things got crazy down under.
