    i rewatched the TFB video on the Manurhin mr73 and the youtube algorithm serves me up this video on the factory. 3000 revolvers per year output. no wonder it is expensive. i wish i could handle one.

    The M73 has a wonderful reputation
    and I'm sure Beretta will do right by
    it in terms of maintaining quality.
    Let's just say it's an excellent .357
    (ditto in referring to the Korth).

    And I believe that many members
    here could afford a Manurhin and
    enjoy it. In effect, the gun in
    cost represents three or four
    of the regular popular guns readily
    available and already owned,
    i.e. the Smith L frames, the Ruger
    GP100s and now the Colt Pythons
    of 2020.

    If immediate funds are not available
    for an M73, one could sell those
    American made revolvers to get the
    money when the M73 can be found.
    And some already have the $3,000+
    just as some already own fine
    autos like a Brown or Wilson.

    The question sometimes comes down
    to would you rather have one .357
    like the M73 or the three or four other
    revolvers which you may already own.

    For me, I'm satisfied with what I own and
    sometimes I can still dabble in getting
    a vintage S&W that I've always wanted.

    Now, where can I handle one of those
    M73s and......:):):)

    now that the seed of owning a brand new Manurhin is planted. i can start ruminating on how to rationalize it. i can easily chew on this for a couple of years.

    i especially like that they blue the cylinder last. i also noticed that one test firing the gun did not reshoot the gun after making the last adjustments to the sights.

    They're so familiar with the task, that they can totally wing it with amazing accuracy :rofl:

    I'm buying one when it comes out...

    Nice if there's a 6" barrel available.

    Interesting, I use a file, then sandpaper on a file the way they do. Also not they do not drag a file back and forth, only making contact in one direction, they way we should do it. I get a lot of blank looks when I tell people don't drag the file back and forth on the metal, pick it up in the non cutting direction.

    The blank looks might be due to your claim being completely debunked. Your shop teacher lied!

    Experience tells me files last longer if you don't file both directions. Never took shop. One can find support for almost anything on u-tube. :)
