I don't have 1, but I looked at 1 at the shop the other day.

I think it kinda depends on what ya want. The Beretta revolvers are more like recreations of old west revolvers. If that is your flavor, I have heard good things.

If you want something for traditional carry, I think a more updated revolver design might be better.

Taurus is suppoosed to be pretty good, but S&W usually is sturdier and is made a little better/better fit and finish.

I'm not really into the cowboy style. I'm looking into a S&W 686P. I was given a price of $630.00 out the door. Good deal or nah?

Go to www.gunsamerica.com and look in the S&W revolver section. U will see all spectrum of pricing, but it gives U an avg if you see enough of one model. I wouldn't buy on the net, only in person. But I like to look there.

I don't know enough about revolvers to tell U a price.

The wife and I have a Stampede Marshall in 45lc.. Love the grips and so far about 1000 rounds without a hitch. Seems to be a very solid well built and accurate gun. It's a nice departure from the semi autos and the DA's we have. Check one out I think you may like the Stampedes..

I seem to be the only person on earth who actually has one of the Laramies, and have since they first came out - with the wrong manual included. ;0

It's eaten close to 2k rounds now.





It is most certainly not a modern revolver, but that's not what I got it for. I'm a sucker for top-breaks, and when it came into the shop here, I had to have it.

I'm curious, how do you empty the cylinder of a top-break? Is there some sort of ejector? Could you post some more detailed pictures, please :)

I'd really have no use for any kind of wheelgun, but there's something in them... so, maybe one for just a some sort of "Sunday gun" :wink:

It's the granddaddy of the S&W hand ejector - when the weapon is put on half-cock, you release the latch and pull the barrel downwards rapidly. There is a lever that meets on the lower frame and barrel assembly that pushes the ejector out with force, sending brass (or aluminum) flying.

The flying brass is one of the things I like most about the Schofield and Webley family experience - the ejection is part of the whole shooting experience.

I've loaded the cylinder with the aluminum Blasers and chosen an appropriate background so thee ejector can easily be see.

S & W 686PP

Hey Berettaman:
I bought a S & W 686PP about three years ago. I love shooting this gun especially on single action. Great gun! Highly recommend! This one is by my bed every night loaded and ready. You can't go wrong with a S & W wheel gun!

Top Break

Here's a look at another top break - Uberti's version of the 1875 Schofield. This one's in 44-40. Fun gun to shoot and solidly built.

Look at the Ruger GP 100 357............very accurate, will last forever. I think it's Corbon that uses them to test their ammo loads.

That Laramie is one beautiful handgun. I have an old Darrah copy of a Webley in .32S&W. A Laramie in .45 Colt should prove to be a real fun gun!!!
