Maybe consider a Dan Wesson?
My first centerfire revolver was a six inch Security Six. A great gun I wish I still had.
Those things are awesome. The only thing I never liked about them was the cylinder release being on the crane.
My GP100 a 3” fixed sight version. I mainly use the compact Lett grip shown, but sometimes use the large rubber Hogue grip it came with, which I find very comfortable.
I bought a wood Hogue grip, but I would need to get Dremel tool with sanding drum out to make it work for me. I shot some 145gn Silvertip with it installed, and it was beating the web of my hand pretty bad... Just too thick there. I have shot a Model 19 snubbie with the small Magna grips and didn’t have a problem, so I know it’s not me.
All of this porn will make it easy to drop my cash.
Went to some local shops and found out this is probably not the time to buy a new gun with the prices I seen.
This would be at the top of my list. Just a solid built revolver.
When I bought my GP100, I had a lot of experience with S&W K and L frames. I read the trigger pull was inferior on the GP, and studied up on GP trigger jobs.
When I brought my new GP home, I was surprised to find a very smooth DA trigger, comparable to my well used Model 15.
Yeah the GP100 Champion is a nice option.
Deals are definitely harder to find right now, but not impossible. I found a great price on an M&P full size here in the GT classifieds and a reasonable price on an NRA P365XL at the LGS.
As for the topic:
I'm thinking I shouldn't, but do like the looks of those grips. Home made/custom Pachmayr/wood combination?
S&W 686+ or Ruger GP100 7 shot. Both rock solid pistols
My favorite .357 Mag pistol is a 686, but have never owned one.
Size/weight not a factor? Try this:
Seven shot, built like a tank.
Talo has a 3" version of the same gun, a bit gussied up?
I had one when they first came out and it is a tank. Being I’m not hearing any negatives on it and my previous experience with problematic S&W revolvers I’m probably going with a GP100. I had a 4” before and it was nice but I always wanted a 6” .357mag, every .357 I had before was 4”.
So I am seeing prices of 730.00 and up, is that normal or due to this environment we are in?
It's a Pachmayr product (American Legend), although this exact version appears to be no longer made.
Their website has them for round butt k frames, but I had to track down that one for the square butt on eBay.
I am actually considering selling my 686 4" pre-lock...smoothest dbl action of any revolver I have ever owned ( since 1971)...I know it makes me sound like a traitor or something, but I just don't shoot her anymore...I will post here if I decide to let her go to a good home
depending upon the model/brand, 730 could be low...I suspect my 686 would bring more than that
