    Revolvers on Hand

    Just wanted to share photos of a couple of my favorites.

    Colt Trooper MK III, .357 magnum. I've had this one since 1982. 6" barrel, lustreless nickel finish. One of the all-time great handguns, in my opinion. Extremely accurate with a really great trigger. I've hunted javelina and feral hogs with this one. It's always been one of my prime defensive handguns, as well.



    Ruger Vaquero, .45 Colt. This was my birthday present from my young bride last year. It's the older, large-frame model. 3-3/4" barrel and birds-head grip. This is a really fun weapon to shoot. Quite comfortable, too. I love the contour of the grip. There's just nothing quite like a single-action .45.

    Cheers,
    Rod

    Those are real nice pistols. I'm getting the itch that's hard to scratch for a Colt of some kind.

    I've got a 1952 pre-Python .357 Magnum that I enherited from my Dad. I don't shoot it much, just a few times after I initially got it. It is worth too much to me, as it did to him. It is a beautiful gun. My Mom sent me all the paperwork he had on it. He wasn't the original owner, I think it was about two years old when he bought it. Cost him something like $89 at the time (I am not home at the moment so I can't be 100% sure)...

    They are beautiful revolvers.

    Cheers! M2

    I've always liked the looks of the Colt Python, would still like to have one.

    I personally like the Vaquero. Nice finish on the frame of it. And what are the handles made out of?

    I have a blued six inch trooper myself. The finish is beat but I don't know if I would actually lose value by getting it reblued. It's ugly but it makes pretty targets!

    Yep, as Artz said, the stocks are black micarta. The color case hardening on the frame is a great look. I'm still looking for just the right western rig to carry this one in.
