    it´s being offered in an auction for 2.000 Euros, supposedly
    it was 6.400 Mark new-price.

    Anyone familiar with them?
    Are they worth their money?

    says: handmade, plasmacoated, palisander-grip

    The Korth is "probably" the finest quality revolver ever made.
    These are a true custom revolver, with the company willing to build one to your specifications, along with making various "standard" models.

    The Korth is virtually hand machined and polished by Master gunsmiths.
    The design is well thought out, but the gun does have some features that Americans find odd, like the manual safety many models have.

    While the quality is high, so to is the price, and actual performance may not be any better than a top-end American gun like the now-discontinued Colt Python.
    If you're the type of person who like top-end watches or cars, the Korth is the gun version of the gold Rolex watch or Ferrari car.

    No, I could shoot a half dozen model 19s to death for that price.

    2000 Euro? Hell, I'd buy it! Korths are superb revolvers.

    Anything is worth what somebody will pay for them.

    Will I pay 2K euro? Absolutely not! For my 2K euro or equivalent, I'd get a couple of Smith & Wesson PC N-frames, a GP100 (all slightly used) and live happily ever after.

    BTW, that is an still on-going auction so we do not know at what price it will eventually sell.

    I'm sure it's a wonderful revolver.
    Way too high priced for me, and my needs.

    I just converted it. That's U.S. $2861.10 for those who are curious.

    Worth it?... i wouldn't buy it, but that's a good price for those revolvers.

    If I had the disposable income - ABSOLUTELY!

    I currently have a Casull, I'd like a Sig P 210 and a Korth - each said to be the best examples of their kind.
