The patina, it looks like a replica Colt.I do leather work in the single action business but I'm not an expert.

As a non-wheelgun owner this is my next purch.

You  might have seen my previous posts about the 686. It's a great gun and accurate as hell. Good choice.

post #3679 of 3771
Ah right! Very nice. Ya it's hardly a dubious choice but I thought I'd see what experience this thread had on it. Good to hear.

Very pleased with my Ruger SR1911 but may stick to the haloed nameplate this time.

I believe there's a Korth dealer in Vancouver, if you want to out halo the other halos.

Oh wow. Nice! Great tip, thank you.
post #3683 of 3771

The cobalt blue is a bit gaudy for my taste, but Korth definitely makes exceptional guns. And charges a proportional fee.

Whereas a two pound wheelgun is normally so subtle and understated! It's beautiful. The bespoke sueded gator Albert loafer of firearms. Probably.

Still, I don't think I even want to know what this costs.

$5g'z USD

Something is "off" about the revolver in that photo. It purports to represent a six-shot .357, but there are way too many bolt notches and flutes in the cylinder for it to be a sixgun. My best guess is that it is a nine or ten-shot .22 built on the same frame.

On the matter of the Korth, I can recall early in my career at Guns & Ammo we had a Korth in for evaluation. I was forbidden to touch it because I had already developed a reputation for breaking the test guns. Indeed, I did subject them to sudden stresses at high pressures--a procedure called "shooting."

I don't think so. I count six chambers.

We're talking about the "Alfa Proj" Czech-made revolver here? I assure you, the revolver pictured is NOT a six-shot revolver, and I like to think I know a little more about revolvers and handguns in general than the average bear.
post #3690 of 3771

I thought you meant the Ruger. My mistake, you are right about that. 

 

However, I suppose I would be the average bear? The average bear with 8 years military experience, 4 years as a competitive single action shooter, and 3 firearms trainer certifications? There is nothing wrong with touting your experience but don't assume nuthin' bout me. :D
