    Fine piece - probably the toughest .357 medium frame revo out there.

    Was it already ''worked on'' or did you do some tweaks?

    Nice gun, that's for sure.

    Great Gun! I had a 3" GP-100 and SP-101, traded both, worse move I ever made. Enjoy!

    The Ruger GP100 4" is the next wheelgun I plan to purchase. I'll probably use it as a hunting sidearm, as its too big and heavy for CCW.

    P95Carry, the gun was worked on before I aquired it. I traded a GLOCK 32 for it. I'm partial to revolvers, I guess.

    Great wheel gun. The Speed-SIX was a very nice wheelie also.

    About 4 months ago I bought the same gun that had been re-imported by CAI. Like yours mine was a fine gun and vry accurate. I am willing to bet, like mine, yours was sent from the factory without the hammer spur....or as double action only!!!. Try to cock it, if it will not lock into the single action position then it is probably DAO.

    I like mine so much I sent it to Gemini Customs to have it worked over for carry. One of the things he removed was the CAI and the barrel billboard of information. I love the result.
    Here are some before & after pics:

    Isn't it illegal to remove the importer's stamp? While reading refinishing threads, that point has been brought up a couple of times.

    Nice revolver, regardless.

    I was told by a guy that knows the laws pretty well that so long as the original manufacturer's information and serial number was still on the gun it was legal. Especially since the original manufacturer was here in the US. I also would thing that if that were true, Marc Morganti would not have removed it.

    Actually, with a good belt and pancake holster it carries
    just fine.

    Not for summer time, but in the cooler months with a
    light coat, I'm good to go.

    My revolver is in fact a DAO..It will not lock into the single action position. Tex45acp, who did the work on yours? It looks great!
