    The trigger was pretty stiff on my LCRx 22lr. That's probably why I shot it so poorly. IIRC, a friend also shot it some and didn't fare so well, either. Perhaps I just got a bad specimen. I like my LCR 38 special very much.

    I used to compete in Bullseye shoots for many years and I've never found any sa revolver nearly as easy to cock with the thumb as Smith & Wesson Masterpiece and Colt Officer's Match da target revolvers are. We're all built differently, I suppose.

    The 317 isn't easy to shoot good groups with either. I bought it as a pocket gun when fishing/hiking since having something along is better than nothing, but the light weight and stiff trigger make it harder to keep aligned on target than I thought it would.

    Most people aren't willing to spend a grand on such revolvers, especially if they're .22

    I must be strange because I shoot all my .22lr revolvers double action as much as single. My apparently gorilla like trigger finger has no problem with the DA trigger.

    I am also willing to spend as much on a good .22lr as on any center fire. I like shooting high quality .22s. Pistols and rifles.

    I could never understand the idea that a .22lr isnt a "real gun", and therefore should cost much less than any center-fire caliber gun. In fact the single most expensive handgun I own is a .22lr. People who adhere to this idea are missing out on some great accurate firearms that are fun and inexpensive to shoot a lot. Great .22s are worth the extra money because you will shoot them more than your center-fire guns for practice.

    So very true. I've never understood the refrain, "It's only a .22." As you said, some of the finest handguns and rifles ever made are chambered in .22 rimfire; they are very capable small game takers and target punchers and you can afford to shoot them to boot.

    That old it might be o.k. late 94s are uniformly heavy pull, poorly timed and one of our most returned handguns. Clock it very slowly and watch the lockup. Check sa pull. Most of the late ones are not good. Too bad, cause they look like my 34 and 63 which are flawless. I have had a dozen small frame Taurii and they are running 50-50 on acceptability.

    I have the snubby version. It's never given me any trouble and once the sights are adjusted quite accurate. SA is much smoother than DA but that being said after a couple hundred rounds the DA has smoothed out quite a bit. As others said it does have some sharp edges on it and keep it clean or it will rust. Price of the one your looking at seems a little high.
