I have nice paintings for decoration but my guns serve one purpose, to be shot by me and I have expectations about accuracy, not looks.
Shooting them with dirty reloads is fun!
This is my favorite revolver, it is a .22 l.r. Korth 24series made in 1969. I bought it about a dozen years ago used and have had it going to the range with me almost every week since then. Ratzeburg Korths are so well made and finished, that they do not show use, only abuse.
I hope many more come out of the safes. They were made for enjoyment.
A Smith & Wesson model 25 in .45 Colt.
I am going today to hopefully buy a new one...if the store still has it...I hope, I hope, I hope.
It appears to have Altamont Roper grips.
Happens every time I want to sleep on a purchase decision.
I know how you feel. I missed out on a model 27 because I waited a day. I missed out on a 686 because I hesitated. I saw this one on this guns and ammo franchise store website I have never shopped at and called them to see if they would hold it for me. They said that they could not. I was sure I was going to show up and those words I have heard so many times before “Sorry, but we sold it earlier.”
I am very happy I was able to get this one. Very happy.
Todd, Grab-a-Gun has the TRR8 in stock now. I got an email a little while ago. They want full MSRP of $1360.00 for it.
I posted this in the “.357 Double Action” thread a few minutes ago as well.
Thanks for that for sure, but, after reading a couple of hands-on reviews, I'd like to be able to inspect one prior to popping for it.
Seems even though - *ironically* - they are supposed to be Performance Center guns, some shoddy inspection/assembly has occurred on them and I don't care to cope with returns if I can help it.
I sure do appreciate the head-up though.
I saw a .22 a few years ago on gunbroker marked US POSTAL SERVICE. it went $sky-high$. It was pristine.
That is a very rare revolver.
Shooter Supply. Only 4195 were made. My other Holy Grail would be a S&W m696
3" .44 Special. My m66 below:
Yes, but you can mate a DS 2" barrel onto a Police Positive (.38 S&W not special)and voila you have a square butt BS
A Dan Wesson .357 Max. Would shoot.
A 25 or 625 in .45 Colt. Would shoot.
3" Python for me too.
