how to measure barrel length of revolver?

Discussion in 'The Wheelhouse' started by robert91922, Nov 20, 2011.

  1. I own several pistols and yesterday I bought my first revolver: Taurus M44 CP (ported). It's used, in great condition, however I still don't know exact length of it's barrel:

    - including wheel drum: 8 3/8"
    - only barrel without wheel drum: 6.5 "

    Which one is correct?

    At pistols chamber is included in barrel length, but what with revolvers? :dunno:

    No problem, enjoy it, you will want more and more revolvers. And you will start telling your self you need the pointless calibers, I now want a 41mag 460 480 500. Have no need for them , just want. They are addicting.
