.357 Revolver/Rifle Combos
I realize that this is a Handgun Form but I think it would be interesting to learn about the various .357 Revolver/Rifle Combs that members of this group have chosen. I am seriously interested in putting together a combo for my grandson.
Please tell us which .357 Revolver you have and which .357/.38spl Rifle you selected to complete your combo. If your up to it, please expand on your reasons for your choices of both the Handgun and Rifle.
Here's what I paired together,,,
I have a 4" Colt Trooper Mk-III in .357 Magnum,,,
I also have a 6" Trooper Mk-III in .22 LR.
I purposefully chose these two H&R rifles to pair with them.
H&R Handi-Rifle in .357 Magnum with leupold Rifleman 3x9x40 scope,,,
H&R Sportster in .22 LR with Bushnell Banner 3x9x40 scope
I have a friend who lets me roam his property early in the morning,,,
I take the rimfires out to see if I can pop a bunny or three for his dogs.
I think I'm Obsessive Compulsive in that I like sets of things,,,
In addition to the H&R Rifles paired with the Colt Troopers,,,
I've also paired up other rifles and pistols.
I purchased a Mossberg 702 Plinkster on a whim one day,,,
Wal Mart had them on sale for $99.95,,,
Turned out to be a fine little rifle.
I paired it up with a Ruger 22/45 pistol,,,
The one with fixed sights and the 4.5" slab-side barrel.
I made a sling for the rifle with a pouch to hold an extra magazine,,,
And a matching holster for the Ruger based loosely on an M-7 military holster.
I have a Henry Accubolt .22 LR single-shot rifle,,,
It's stainless steel and came with a black synthetic stock.
I paired that rifle with a Colt Frontier Scout .22 LR single-action revolver,,,
It's the one with the aluminum alloy frame, blue cylinder and barrel,,,
Again I made a sling with bullet loops for the Henry rifle,,,
And a matching field holster for the Colt revolver.
It's all for fun,,,
And showing off at the range.
