Although I've been shooting and collect guns for about 23 years now, I just got into revolvers in the last year. Here's what I have so far:

- SW Model 29-10 in 44 mag.

- SW Model 637 Airweight in .38

Not really the best of pictures but these are my latest revolvers that I scored. I figured I'll get them now before they become unobtanium.

This is just for fun. I won this on GunBroker for $159 and it's new. To make it even better the dealer was here in Vegas so I was able to pick it up on my way home from work without shipping--just sales tax. It came to about $170 out the door.

What is it and why can't I ever find any good deals on this sort of thing?

It's an Armscor .38--made in the Philippines. Centerfire Systems sells them for $169.99 so I did get it pretty cheap (add shipping and $20 for FFL transfer--it's over $200 in your hands) But the difference is not huge.

http://www.centerfiresystems.com/AC-M200.aspx

I can only assume it wasn't selling and they didn't want to mess with it any more so they auctioned it with no or low reserve. I just wanted a cheap revolver, and this one filled the bill.

It's a sort-of Colt copy with simple lockwork and pretty mediocre all around. I have an Armscor 1911 copy that is much better quality.

Bought this S&W 19-4 with a 4" barrel in Tampa, FL in July 1980. Nearly pristine and not a safe queen.

I use the standard cheap $150 camera, $5 in fabric from the store and natural light coming in the window (and a cheap tripod I found at work). You can tell the camera is cheap from the quality, but other than that it works great! I'd rather spend my money on guns than cameras. :-P

Well, my camera is not too bad. A 2 year old 5 mega pixel Cannon job. I spared no expense with my back drop, though.....it's a cardboard box lid!

So I finally got around to trying to take (and post-process) some images of my 'kids' to share. There are several really phenomenal photographers here (SJShooter and Lunde come to mind) and they have inspired me to spend a bit more time on this.

So one of the 'quirks' of my collection is that I have acquired, through no aim of my own, the original engineering revisions ("-nodash") of various models. Here's my 49-1, 649, and 36:




I also have original 66 and 581; seen here with their factory stocks reversed. I'm not a huge fan of Factory Targets on a 4" K-Frame. It just doesn't look as elegant as the Magnas. Likewise, the 581 is too beefy with just Magnas -- but looks divine (and shoots more divinely in my hands..) with Targets.





I do think Factory Targets look "right" on this 19-5 (not pinned or recessed) with Target Hammer and Target Trigger, though:

The topmost gun is a Ruger Security-Six frame mated to a 4" Colt Python barrel. Davis called this a Cougar.

The bottom gun is a Ruger Speed-Six frame mated with a 3" Colt King Cobra barrel. He called it the Rattler.

Both have a fantastic feel, and trigger work that is simply indescribable.
Upgraded pic. Also included is a S&W Model 13 that Davis mated to a Model 581 (L-frame) barrel as a Christmas gift for my Dad. Don't think there was any special intent for the combination, but was just a "custom" gift. The trigger pull is unbelievable.
