Dirty Dan Dawkins Posted March 22 Share Posted March 22 (edited) Bought one of these today. Has Pachmayer grips, fills my hand nicely. Double action is about like any, but smooth. Single action trigger is about perfect to me. A little play in the bolt, but not bad and no worse than my Bisley 44 mags with Belt Mountain base pins. I don't feel I paid too much for it compared to the $600 to $800+++ Rugers on display. There was an Sp101 there for $100 more, but I did not like the way it fit my hand. Would prefer modern sights, but thought I'd paint the box milled out behind the fixed rear in white and paint the front serrated sight in orange. Any sight paint ya'll prefer? I know this is out of production. Any parts I should look for? Bolt, transfer bar and pawl come to mind. Of course, a competent smith could likely make these. The quest for 44 special woods gun has led me to a $1000 dollar or more dead end. I think this will do just fine. Lighter than my OMVs and fills my hand better than my NMVs. Now for a holster! Huzzah! Edited March 22 by Dirty Dan Dawkins 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
