  1. Smith & Wesson
    Hello, I recently purchased a S&W Model 629 and fired it at the range over the week-end. I put 12 rounds of .44 special though it with no issues, and noted that it was pleasant to shoot. Then I ran 12 rounds of American Eagle .44 magnum 240 grain through it. At the 12th round, the hammer would...

    For all you gun vets that own Revolvers I have a question. I own a Rossi 971 with the firing pin on the hammer, I was wondering if it was bad for my gun to dry fire it and if so why? I have been trying to research but I have no clear reason why i shouldn't dry fire. Also Should I just but...

    I'm looking at some double action rugers and am debating on whether to get them in 45lc or the 357 magnum. which one is more powerful and is the difference a big difference or is it insignificant?

    I recently began hunting feral hogs and would feel much better if I had a sidearem to carry with me along with my rifle for both protection and as a finishing weapon. I am looking at used firearms as I am working with a maximum budget of about $350 and also I could care less about looks. What is...

    After searching around and making a few phonecalls, I was able to find a Super Redhawk .44 Mag with a 9.5 barrel priced at 755.00 new. Is this a good deal, and along with that, does anyone have any suggestions or comments about the revolver?

Attached are some pictures for anyone that could give some insight. There are no markings on it or names. It looks relativiely old...

    I have a stainless Ruger GP100 6" and I love the gun. Built like a tank and is a blast to shoot. I am however getting tired of the iron sights and since ive never owned a red dot I figured I would give it a try. If I dont like it on the Ruger ill put it on something else. I plan to order and...

    I've been looking for a good snubnose revolver to carry concealed as a BUG on my ankle. While I am a big fan of autos (my main concealed carry is a Glock 23 and is one of my favorite guns), I would prefer a revolver as a backup because of their reliability and simplicity. Ideally, I would like...

    The Taurus 627 Tracker Total Titanium (not to be confused with the 5 oz. heavier Taurus 627 Tracker) is the ideal revolver I've been looking for, only I can't seem to find this specific 4'' barrel revoler for sale anywhere. I've looked online and they seem to be "out of stock". I know they exist...

    I plan on buying a J frame soon for CC. My question is does the following models, 637, 638 & 642 have pinned front sights? I would like to upgrade the front sight to one with a tritium insert. If they are not pinned, would a gunsmith be able to put one on? I know some of the other S&W J...
