    Here’s 3 of mine all in .45Colt, one 1st generation and two 3rds. I’ve also got an ultimate SS 6”Python but no pics.

    My Thunder Ranch 21-4

    This is my new to me Thunder Ranch Model 21-4 44 Special. It is very special to me. I thank John Taffin for causing me to want a full size 44 special and Clint Smith for persuading Smith and Wesson to build it. :D

    No I haven't had the opportunity to fire it yet, but it's coming!

    Thanks! They certainly didn't manufacture many, but I'm surprised how often one pops up for sale. It's always been a niche gun, the only difference is that now the niche is collectors rather than target shooters, and despite the name collectors tend to pass stuff around quite a bit lol..

    Mine is a longer 8 inch barrel version, the one in the link you posted at the NRA museum is the much more rare 6 inch barrel model, of which less than 500 were produced IIRC. There were about 2,000 like mine.

    It's a fun handgun to shoot - really accurate and it kinda blows peoples' minds at the range.

    Been wanting both the S&W 327NG and a 6" Python for a long time.
    Finding the J Salley fighter in a pawn shop was a nice surprise too.

    Content,

    I bought my first 2 5/8" PC627 UDR when they were re-released 4/10. I went in to get a 327NG 10/10 - ended up with a second UDR - they are moonclip ready - great for reloads. I also have the 5 Star Firearms speedloaders and loading plates - great product. Here is my first one with some Ahrends retro targets:

    IMG_4546.jpg

    Here they both are - gripped with some nice PC Shop grips - and a custom holster:

    012.jpg

    Finally, I found some 7-shooters that cost a bit less than the typical 686P...

    IMG_4503.jpg

    Okay, an 1895 Nagant has a bit stiffer trigger... and is a bit slower to load/unload, much less, find ammo to fit it! Add the cost of my C&R ffl, to have them sent to the house, and renewals, to the cost - inc s/h - of five of them, and it's still less than the $489 I spent on my one 686P. What was I thinking??

    Hello friends and neighbors // Stainz - I always liked the PC but I'm cheap and like to wait on the right bargin.
    I agree about the Moon Clips being faster. The rubber grips on mine get in the way a bit with these loaders.

    I like your holster. for now I am using am old Hepco.
    Locally there are none available so I am considering ordering the, S&W logo, Glaco from the S&W web site.
    Who made yours?

    I did not know you could obtain 5 Nagants for $489. That is a great deal. If I'm reading that correctly.

    I considered myself lucky to find the 8/24/10 DOM ,S&W 327NG, w/ Tritium sights, plus accessories for $875 on Armslist and the 1978 Colt Python w/ box, plus acc. for $800 (the seller just happened to bring with him) all in one nice package.
    S&W327package.jpg Colt6inPython1978.jpg $1675 for everything in both pics., I'm content.;)

    When I saw the condition of the Colt I grinned so wide it hurt.:D

    Hello friends and neighbors // chez323-- Very nice pair.
    Is that a 3" 629?

    How does it handle?

    Four Favorite Revolvers. 44 Special, a pair of 357's, and a 38. Each one makes me happy in its own way. :p

    Content,

    The PC627 UDR holster is from Ray at Lobo Leather. I bought the Nagants from a source when they were $65 inc holster, lanyard, screwdiver, & cleaning rod + s/h. The best deal now from a common source is ~$100.
