    I'm looking at putting a set of VZ's on it.

    I generally don't like two tone revolvers. But for some reason, I like that one.

    Nice catch.

    The last one I had was a external hammer gun. I carried it for 5 years. It was beat up too. It was a easy shooter and I still can't understand folks complaining about recoil.

    I gave it to my ex-wife. She loved it too and still has it today.

    I'm a big fan of the old Performance Center when it was a custom shop. :cool:

    The autos they built were some of the most accurate in the world...

    I have the 15oz 637 and 642. With 148 grain wadcutters they aren't bad, but with any other factory round I use the recoil is more than when shooting 17-18oz Kahr PM9 and Glock 43 in 9mm with standard FMJ ammo.

    I suspect that explains it.

    With a few shots, no big deal. But if going through a box of 50, the difference in felt recoil could make some people prefer some other gun.

    That's a nice looking gun.

    What kind of ammo is that? I like to carry semi-wadcutter, in part because they feed nicely into the cylinder.

    I have one of those PC 442s and I ccw it in the summertime. I like it but honestly I don’t feel like mine has any better trigger pull than my other J-frame Airweights.

    I have VZ’s on a square butt K frame and love them. I don’t think the round butt version would feel as awesome, to me, just looking at pix. I do like Hogue checkered rosewood bantam grips on a Centennial (I’ve got three!)

    Tread carefully with the VZ's on a magnum revolver. I put them on my Trail Boss in .44 mag and it was like someone yanking a cheese grater out of my hand. I put the Hogue's back on.
