Yes!!  Takes some thought and instruction to do it safely.

 

There’s no forestock and there’s a good reason for that. Shooter should carefully avoid a hand or forearm near the front of the cylinder when firing!!!

What is the rationale for that?

Or, like here, is there any?

 

 Supposedly, one could attack said firearm with a hacksaw and make an unregistered handgun.

 

  .....  apparently 'twas once done and then used to rob a service station of it's days' takings ....

So could a SMLE.<_<

 

Then again, I'm applying logic to a school of thought and law that is irrational and illogical in the first place.

I have this 1875 Uberti made, E.M.F. marked .357 made in 1976. Enjoy the heck outa it. Figured out a trick to shootin it pretty fast and now and then will use in a monthly. 20190810_163704.thumb.jpg.8c4f14c62328a1c1034fba3fb57a5b44.jpg

 

To me they are a fascinating firearm.

 

If you want a history lesson about them or want to order a custom-made one,

go here....

The Colt pattern is too straight - not enough stock drop to get a sight picture without turning your head kind of sideways. I wasn't looking for any such thing, but it was on closeout at a local store a few years back for about half price, so... :P
