I’m happy to shoot wadcutters or standard pressure out of mine.
+++ for cavalry ammo. about the best-priced, reduced-recoil, 38sp ammo available. 9mm, 380acp and 32long are fine buys too. free shipping for veterans.
(No, surprisingly, I didn't order one.)
I really tried to like the thing, but its just not happening.
I'm glad you poster's are liking them, I didn't realize they have a substantial following.
I now have 8 with a total of 15 barrels. Does that qualify as substantial?
As to the trigger; yes. A bit heavy and long but they were never intended for 2700 aggregate competition. I'm told, however, that SASS shooters are quite fond of them.
I get it. They aren’t for everyone. As far as modern derringers, they are the quality maker today. For many of us, it’s a combination of collectible, fun, and historical. The trigger is probably the biggest downside.
Yes Sir, that is substantial. If a guy's going to like something it might as well go bang. I can see why people are attracted to them. Its a fun little thing.
Well, i liked mine well enough to buy it. And it certainly is a quality little pistol, i had hoped the trigger would smooth out with use, not yet however.
I may see if a trigger job would peak my interest, anyone have any experience doing that to visit with?
I've always felt that anything worth doing is worth over-doing.
A former owner and gunsmith, now deceased, of the gun shop I work at did a trigger job on his years ago. The difference was quite remarkable so yes, it can be done.
Two shots of .410 magnum 000 buckshot will solve just about any problem the average civilian can expect to run into.
Reliability is extremely high. They pack and carry extremely well. The versatility of being able to load for four, two, and no legged predators is a huge benefit.
You could do FAR worse for an all-purpose packing pistol.
Lays really nice and flat in the pocket. Should not print unless you are wearing tights! And I hope nobody here (guys anyway) wears tights!
risky business, do you have a gen1 or gen2 (indented trigger, wider hammer spur)? the latter’s trigger mechanism was improved; i would hate to try a gen1.
There's a fix for that. The one I referred to above was a very early Gen 1. I know that because I sold it to him. I bought it used in 1999. It was a 3 digit SN.
^. He gives a link under the video to where he got them.
Altamont in my opinion makes the nicest Ba grips.
