Beautiful!

Sure hope it hasn’t been converted to .44 Mag., though! Don’t think that would go too well.

Well, do you know about Korth revolvers?

There’s nothing inherently “cheap” about a revolver with a barrel tensioned by an external shroud. I love the design on my Korths. I hate it on S&W...

Agreed. Colt has made a number of great revolvers over the decades. Only one of them was named after a snake.

If you had an early Pro (Nowlin barrel, no MIM parts) in unfired/ANIB condition, there would certainly be an argument for keeping it that way (and buying a later one as a shooter). Aside from those,...

That's interesting. I'd never heard of the Ruger Wrangler before, so I looked it up and on Ruger's website it says:

Why would you want to? The gun has an actual safety. Use that.

Dddrees will have to provide the definitive word on the Mongoose, but I've read that that remains the case on the new Korths. It's definitely the case on the Ratzeburg guns.

I have a Model 83 PG in .454 and have never been interested in the smaller Model 97, so the Model 83 would be my pick. The .454 recoil will be vicious from a 5.5” barrel, though. Great that it comes...
