HHMMM??? Cylinder release bassackward?  Try COLT setup.

You do realize that Armscor is where the majority of Colt machinery went when they got stupid and decided no more civilian sales 20 or so years back. 

Basically that is a Phillipine made Colt Diamondback.

No..........didn't know that. The only other "Colt" copy I have, is a single action so..........it doesn't have that.
The grip is rigid ABS and the edges were ever so slightly "off" in a couple of places. The most noticeable was the tip, right under the trigger guard. Easy fix though. A few light passes with a small file took care of the issue and now, it's smooth and comfortable in my hand.

Basically that is a Phillipine made Colt Diamondback.  Congrats on you.  You are beginning to see the light and the truth.

And while we are here, either one of you two do this?  It is the most important thing you can do this month.  And it only takes a bit of clicking and typing.

 :thumbsup:

I am not sure if it is the "NEMO Effect" or not, but I know I have doubled the amount of wheelies I have over the past two to three years, going from a New England Firearm .22 9 shot and a S&W 28-2 and adding a couple of .44 magnums (Ruger Super Blackhawk and Interarms Virginian Dragoon) and a S&W pre-Model 10 "Victory" .38 to inventory. (...and still looking!)

Handguns / My first wheel gun
« Last post by Hamster on 21 Jul 2017 - 21:50:40 »
Well, I finally did it..............I got myself a wheel gun. Actually, I traded a Bersa .380 that I was somewhat dissatisfied with for it and even got $35 back.
It's not really my "1st" wheel gun but, it's the first one that's not rimfire, single action only or older than dirt.
It's dirt cheap but, works well and has some sort of parkerized finish rather than being blued. It's .38 SPL only and not +P rated but, that doesn't really matter to me. I won't be carrying it either. It'll just be a fun range gun and maybe even a "night stand" gun.
I'm guessing it was designed to reduce cost and/or have fewer moving parts but, the cylinder release button is bass ackwards. You pull it to the rear to release the cylinder rather than pushing it forward like most modern revolvers.
It has a smooth crisp trigger in both SA and DA. SA trigger pull is about 4.5 pounds. I can't measure the DA trigger pull because my el cheapo analog scale only goes up to 8 pounds but, it feels about the same as my Nagant revolver which is about 12 pounds.

OK, who has done anything regarding this.  It showed 9 views when I opened it this time.  1 or 2 were when originally posted and edited it, so .  .  ..

Speak now and get your asses out there to work on this.

I saw an article on that awhile back. What's really odd about that one is, the cartridges are loaded into the magazine, nose first.
It's an interesting little gun but, they're gonna have to come WAY down on the price before I'd consider buying one.

Handguns / Way Cool New Derringer

by Bond Arms.  The Derringer company.  And this one is semi-auto, with a operating system I have never seen before.  But it looks so simple.  But its still a Derringer.  Size wise anyway.
