"Eastern Block" guns?
It occurred to me that in essence we have three main revo makers . S&W, Ruger and Taurus - for home consumption. Oh OK better add Charter, Rossi etc too.
I am aware of a good many semi's out of the ''Eastern Block" but got to wondering, are there any revo's coming out from that region? Seems somehow nothing much that I can recall.
Chris as far as i know once you escape the C&R status there are none . I personally believe that this is because a revolver requires a higher level of craftsmanship that the east block countrys could or would not sustain for weapons . Every toolmaker or machinist of note was put to work doing other things , so fitted firearms suffered .
The Nagant is one (as RR alluded to).
Bob - that makes total sense - but I had this curiosity factor - ya know - stuff us old farts suffer now and again :18:
I actually didn't state - I was thinking of ''present day'' - true tho the Nagant revo is perhaps the item that most comes to mind looking back but, IIRC - goes back quite some ways.
Guy at my old club in UK back in 80's shot bullseye at 25 yards with his Nagant and beat everyone!!
Agreed chris , and while they did produce some fine rifles ( cz ect ) for whatever reason no revolvers that i know of , I would like to be surprised by one also .
Gun Tests Magazine (March 2007 issue) did a review of a .357 Magnum revolver made by Alfa Proj in the Czech Republic.
Model number is 3541, retails for $419.00.
They rated it an "F", basically a POS.
EAA has some revolvers, both single action repros and double actions, never fired one though.
