Im literally browsing gb for a 357 revolver right now. From what i see, it will probably be a s&w 4" (with no lock, obviously). Maybe a model 19.
If someone wants to point me in a specific direction, im all ears.

Gun on the right in op is a 19-3. It's pretty fucking great.

I would recommend a k frame pre lock 4" gun for your first 357. It's a prideful thing that you can learn on, everyone can work on them, they are timeless and sturdy.

Read about forcing cones and hot low grain 357s. Otherwise they will last you as long as you want them to.

Don't rule out model 13/65 too. Lots of cops hauled them around so there may be some on the market. I think they are less desirable than the heavier k frames by collectors.

>>
>>35824837
Any revolver from Ruger is gonna be fine anon. I think the blackhawk gets recommended more because it's cheaper new and way cheaper if you for a used one. Lot of people buy a .44mag and then find out they don't like shooting .44mag and sell it. You can find some little used guns for low monies.

This. RedHawks are neat too but more expensive and really the only functional difference to a user is double action.

Blackhawks are a better value, but RedHawks are nice.

686-4+ or 686-5+ would be my picks(sucker for a sevengun) but they command a premium considering. 19s are really nice from an aesthetic perspective. Frankly i don't find the locks to be too big a deal but each their own and all.

>>35824313
.357 mag works for just about everywhere in the continental US except brown bear territory and has significantly more oomph than .40. Very common ammo also. .38 isn't too tough on the bank, and 125gr JHPs have a rep as being the streetking for a reason. Great in town and very good in the woods when loaded with hot 158 or 180gr hardcast. Living in the midwest it's my personal choice for woods carry.

Frankly any handgun is too little for brownies IMO. Kinda problem that takes a good rifle or maybe shotgun to handle with surety.

I kinda like .45 LC too. can be loaded in a redhawk to ~1300ftlbs, or standard pressure .44 mag levels safely. Of course heavy .44 mag revolver can technically be loaded up to ~1500ftlbs so it still has a bit of an edge if we're talking boutique rounds. The redhawk can also chamber .45 ACP if you need to carry into town or something.
>>
>>35825447
I'm in brownie territory so definitely a concern.

.44 mag sounds nice, a redhawk or blackhawk should do me fine.

Obviously its not a guaranteed kill if a bear is charging me but its better than .40 and better than a bolt action hunting rifle (in terms of offering me the ability for repeat shots in case of a miss or ineffective strike)
>>
>>35825467
You should carry bear spray and a revolver imo. Lot of evidence of the effectiveness of the spray and then the gun for any other eventualities.
>>
>>35825498
but shooting an angry bear in the noggin would be cool and a real story to tell

telling everyone you sprayed it down like some libtard at a protest doesn't feel nearly as fun
>>
>>35825467
True enough. Be sure to practice a lot and only carry what ammo you can fire quickly, repeatedly, and accurately. pretty sure there are some bear drills out there you can run. Seems a lot of people just focus on getting the maximum oomph of a round instead of balancing it with their abilities. More rounds on target is better than more ft-lbs most of the time.

You can buy lots of other things with the money that you will also use only once like hookers and blow.

Would the 460 perform significantly better than the 44 as a hunting cartridge, obviously it is more powerful but is it worth it? I wanted to use it in place of a rifle. I can get a 629 or a 460 for about the same price, only difference is ammo

People have been taking pretty big North American game with 44 mag for a long time.
>>
>>35824837

Redhawks are rarely under 650$ used, where I see super black hawks around 400$ used all the time. In my area at least. Not to mention super black hawks can handle nuclear hand loads.
>>
>>35826030
Yeah it's kind of like a lot of the big boutique rounds(handgun and rifle) in that it has bigger numbers for sure, but it's all overkill. 30-06 and a .44mag is all you need to kill anything in North America but that truth doesn't stop the wheels of capitalism.

PC guns are nice but probably unnecessary for a hunter. Better off buying more 44 and practicing with the price difference.

Im curious about that, but I have 2 .44s already and need a 1911, so it will wait.

>>35826523
K frame Smiths are fun. But I think you will outgrow a 22 if your budget supports buying another, then go 22. If you want to get some mileage out of one, it's hard to beat a used 10 or 64 for the price.

looking to buy a revolver to carry while doing innawoods activities. my state, while red as can be, requires me to have a 4" barrel and a caliber of 35 or greater in order for me to carry while hunting. I don't have to worry about bears, but moose and mountain lions are a valid threat.

i've pretty much narrowed the caliber down to 357 or 44mag, but i'm not sure about the make/model. the S&W 686 makes my dick twitch in a good way, but that hillary hole tho...

So I have a question that you revolver guys may be able to help with. My first foray into the revolver world is a rossi 972. (I know, rossi. But I needed a budget bear gun due to my job, and didn't have enough for a decent used smith or ruger). Ive fallen in love with revolvers because of this gun, and will focus on getting a good one after my AR10 is complete. However I have an issue with the rear sight.
The rear blade rocks left to right in its mount, I was wondering if anyone knew any way to remedy this on my own. In the pic both the screw and blade can slide side to side, but the mount around it stays steady.
>>
>>35826553
The Super Redhawk is such an ugly revolver and the single action and loading gate of the Blackhawk turn me off a bit. If I have to shoot a charging animal I don't think single action is going to cut it. I'll think about if saving ~$350 is worth it for a Super Redhawk, maybe the looks will grow on me. With a nice little scope it doesn't look all that horrible, I guess.

Shit senpai, either get a pre clintonian 686 or nut up and get a 629/redhawk. Personally i think that .357 does just about everything as well or better than .44(when you factor in 2 foot or dog/wolf) but that's just me.

Hell, when it first came out a number of people made a point of taking just about every kind of game in NA with it. Would i choose it over a .44 mag for bear/moose defense? yes. particularly if i was out hunting with a rifle as s primary like you are. a .355 FN round doesnt take 1500ftlbs to reach an animals vitals and i don't think they'll notice the difference between that and a .44 hole in their heart/lungs. I sure as shit will be able to place more .357s in a given amount of time than .44s though...

YMMV and all that but we aint talking about pistol hunting here, we're talking about a defensive back up weapon to compliment a long arm and imho the .357 is more controllable, offers sufficient penetration, and more capacity for any given size.

Tell me about .41 Mag.

I was thinking about getting a S&W Model 57.

I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area and like the whole 60s-70s era cop aesthetic. People think of the 44 because of Dirty Harry, but SFPD was never actually issued 44. They were issued M58s though, so I think the 57 is a happy compromise.

Is .41 Mag a good round? Does it fit between .357 and .44 as intended or is it just an expensive round with a cult following?
>>
>>35826170
I read that RedHawks could handle hotter loads. They were mistaken?

The only problem with it is that it is built somewhat lightly for a 357 magnum; however that was its main selling point and advantage.

A model 19 can "loosen-up" more quickly than an L or N frame revolver by shooting too many maximum (or over-maximum as they did regularly in days of yore) loads.

The model 19 (and the other K frame 357's) is vulnerable to the forcing cone splitting. This is only associated with firing full magnum loads with bullets of 125 grains or lighter.

You should closely inspect the gun for a evidence of a cracked forcing cone. Also check for a generally solid lock-up. I would also suggest carefully feeling along the cylinder chambers for the slightest signs of bulging, although that is rare. Other than that, check as you would any other S&W revolver.

If it passes inspection (which most will) you are set for a lifetime of pleasurable shooting from your Model 19. Do not shoot any full-powered 357 ammo loaded with 125 grain or lighter bullets. I would also suggest not shooting many full-powered magnum loads of any weight in it, although many folks do just that.

Another option to look at is an older dan wesson like a model 15. They're built a bit sturdier than model 19's and they don't have the ugly finish/billboard and awful trigger featured on Ruger guns.

If they are pristine(ie 100% finish no turn line on the cylinder) you will take a serious hit in value if you shoot them. How much loss would take some research. They will still be more valuable in a used condition then a new one made after they restarted production in the 1990s though.

Yeah they have no turn line whatsoever which is what gives me pause.

I don't need to sell them by any means and they're far from my most valuable pieces but it feels like I should continue to preserve them.
>>
>>35834293

Better than K frame as far as durability with magnum loads also softer shooting due to extra weight. Don't do a lot of rapid fire with it though because all that extra mass from not being bored out for a larger cartridge means you can peen the bolt stops out of shape over time.
>>
>>35834313

I owned one for a time. It was a good gun, but way overpriced and doing business with Chiappa will always make you angry. Also the hammer design makes shooting in SA less enjoyable than most traditional revolvers. Its a good gun, but belongs squarely in the under $650 bin and Chiappa is awful at finishing them (not coating wise, but they do dumbshit like leave front sights loose and not use loctite)

Just picked it up last week. Heading to the range this weekend. Very excited to shoot this thing.

>It doesn't do anything better than more traditional designs
i've never heard of somebody who shot a rhino and didn't think that it had noticeably more controllable recoil...
>>
Saw an older Taurus 66 in an LGS today for around 300. I know Taurus gets memed a lot for being shit, but its kind of hard to fuck up a revolver. Worth it?
>>
recently got a 686. should i worry at all about putting super hot(thinking underwood/buffalo bore) 125gr rounds through it? I've heard that the K frame issues were due to the thin spot at the bottom of the cone. Is cone cracking relatively unheard of with the Ls since it's uniform all around? any other reason i shouldnt run the occasional 1700fps 125gr through it?

I mean i kinda got the thing because i wanted to go fast...
>>
>>35835596
686 have circular forcing cones avoiding the issue.

You can fire hot shit though it. Not Blackhawk/bfr hot, but hot.
>>
>>35835519
I can't imagine it being much better than an all steel gun. The extra weight doing as much as the 6 o'clock bbl placement to help mitigate recoil. I'll never know because I don't hang out with anyone that would buy a meme gun. 357mag is not a heavy recoiling caliber anyway in anything but lightweight snubbies.
>>
>>35835903
Met a guy at the range with one. Trigger was weird. I'll take a 686 or gp100 all day over it.

No. Everything built by Ruger is overengineered and has good fit and finish.

No one's telling you not to buy one or like one you have. I get to have my opinion too though and my opinion is that the perception that 6 o'clock bbl placement helps mitigate recoil does not make the Rhino superior to more traditional designs. All mature products trend towards the most efficient design. That happened with revolvers at the beginning of the 20th century. Chiappa needed a way to garner market share in a mature and crowded marketplace and did so with novelty and aesthetics and not with a paradigm-shifting improvement in revolver design.

It's a gimmicky meme for meme lords. Nothing wrong with being a meme lord just don't try to pretend you want one because chiappa re-invented the wheel(gat). Be honest and admit your a meme lord and you like how it looks.

I too have meme-lorded. I am not proud but i am honest about it. pic related. Forgive it's non-wheelgatness

That's fine and all but claiming that a 6 oclock barrel doesnt mitigate recoil is kinda silly when everybody else seems to think it does, or at least changes the way it's felt notably. I also am not in the market for one and do not own one.

I never said it doesn't mitigate recoil I said it doesn't do anything more traditional designs can d0. A 10" steel bbl also mitigates recoil and I don't like those either.

See, you're doing it again. Sure, i can understand not being a personal fan of a 6 oclock barrel but that's a very unfair comparison. the pros and cons of each are completely different. For that matter you previously stated that you though that such a barrel positioning would be outweighed or counteracted by a same size gun being made of steel, which is pretty silly.

Disliking a 6 oclock barrel layout is one thing, unfairly disparaging it and unfairly comparing it is quite another. to each their own and all that, but you seem pretty focused on shit talking a design because you personally don't prefer it. I've seen you posting those same pictures and opinions on multiple occasions when this topic has come up...

Did your dad not like guns? I think if I were you I'd shoot the newer one and preserve the older one as a valuable heirloom. That way you have extra cash if you're in dire straits but you get to fulfill your grandpa's wish that the family enjoy a good old American revolver.
>>
>>35837001
Probably the gp100, though id buy a security six before either. Frankly id probably save up for a GP100 match champion or used SSR/686+ pro instead. Im a sucker for non full underlugs and an extra hundred for better fit/finish and trigger seems worth it to me. YMMV.
>>
Have any of you owned or shot any of the old High Standard .22 caliber revolvers?

I just stumbled upon an old R-107 Sentinel Deluxe at my pawn shop and I'm intrigued.

Anyone have anything to say about them? What's a good price on these things now days?
>>
Well shit I just got a 50ds Rhino and now you guys got me worried about trying it out.
>>
>>35839701
It'll be fine, just pull the trigger with a string, while you stand behind some industrial polycarbonate.
>>
Is there any particular reason why ringed hammers are never found on revolvers?
>>
>>35839701
After reading that Reddit thread there is literally nothing wrong with the Rhino, the gun blew up because he had a squib load and didn't notice. Not sure how you can even do that with a trigger pull so heavy.
>>
I just ordered a 586. Anything I need to know about it that I might have overlooked?
>>
>>35839701
Rhinos are fine. most guns will blow up if you pop another round into a squib. A gun that doesn't is more an aberration than one that does.

The real argument that one faggot consistently makes(we've had this discussion before...) is that the relative bore/barrel location would make a KB worse for the user due to it being closer to the users hand. He also opines that rhinos have absolutely no benefits over other revolvers and that only a moron would use them. Both of those are false imho.

Given the firearms construction(lotsa alloy) and the barrel location a KB would probably be worse for the user than a KB in other all steel and more traditional designs but the design itself isn't more prone to KBs. Ignoring rhinos for that reason would be like ignoring glocks because they have unsupported chambers. You shouldn't be worried over one faggots over opinionated and underinformed idiocy. Check other information sources if you're really worried, the rhinos don't exactly have a reputation for blowing up under normal circumstances...
>>
>>35840280
Thoroughly check it out before accepting it paying special mind to finishing issues, crown condition, regularity of cylinder gap, cylinder alignment, barrel shroud alignment, and general condition. New smith ain't what they used to be. if it's used then look up used revolver checklists.
>>
>>35840595
The Rhino being made out of aluminum is bad. There is a reason why no one else is making magnum revolvers with standard aluminum frames. Even the ones that use aluminum superalloys aren't as durable and have limitations on what can be used in the gun and how often.

>most guns will blow up if you pop another round into a squib. A gun that doesn't is more an aberration than one that does.

https://desuarchive.org/k/thread/34181582/#34181767

This guy fired 10 squibs into his Ruger Security Six's barrel. It didn't kaboom. It's not even clear if the barrel bulged at all.
>>
>>35840595

> Rhinos are fine. most guns will blow up if you pop another round into a squib. A gun that doesn't is more an aberration than one that does

Completely false. Most all steel guns, especially revolvers, will not explode your hand if shot into a squib.

You are a painful rhino fanboy

>>35839979
Rapid double action firing. By the time your brain registers the squib you've already pulled again. A semi auto will save you because it won't cycle. a revolver will fuck you. A rhino will double fuck you because the explosion will happen .5" of aluminum away from your trigger finger.

I'll see you obscure revolver and raise you.

So I have a really old S&W K frame, .38 police revolver it has an old style serial number no letters just numbers, do you think S&W would check up on it? I think it's a Model 15. The cylinder release is sticking and gritty so I think it needs a gunsmith, it's also old as dirt so it's probably worth a checkup.

I also have a Model 29 that isn't malfunctioning but is probably also worthy of a checkup.

Any idea if S&W will do this for free?
>>
>>35843313

Yeah S&W will run that serial number for you if you ask nicely. As far as routine maintenance...If you have screwdrivers, thumbs and some CLP you can do it yourself. Seriously, go on youtube and watch some videos on taking S&W revolvers apart. It's not rocket science.
>>
>>35843327
Cool, thanks. Unfortunately I lost my thumbs in a boating accident.. Do you think they would take care of it for a fee and if so, how much?
>>
>>35843338
You'd be better off finding a local gunsmith to handle that for you. Turn around would probably be a LOT faster and like I said it's not rocket science.
>>
>>35843347
Oh ok. Both are probably out of warranty?
>>
>>35843394
I have no idea about S&Ws policy about routine maintenance on old guns. If your number one concern is getting them looked at for free then contact S&W and see what they say. If they were my guns I would work on them myself. If they were an acquaintance's gun I'd send them to a local gunsmith. Random anon's get all this advice and can do whatever the fuck they want with it.
>>
>>35843429
Free is good, plus if the turnaround is only a week or two that's no biggie. They aren't my HD guns or anything and I trust them with their own product.
>>
>>35843449
If they take them I wouldn't expect turn around of less than a month and probably more like 6 weeks. At least research what a local gunsmith would charge you to go over them. If there is nothing wrong with them that requires parts he could knock them both out in under an hour.
>>
>>35836365
Noting Ruger makes is overengineered. Overbuilt sure, but that's out of necessity since all their guns are cast.

I don't see why not, especially with modern metals. It's not like we're looking for one in 357 MAG

redhawk 357 or gp100?

Want barn burner loads? That's really the difference. Redhawks can handle more. But are also bigger and more $$$. Unless you hand load, just gp100
