    I have been kicking around the idea of getting one of these.
    I'm nor sure why this revolver keeps getting my attention, but it does.

    Anyone have any hands on experience with one?

    I have one in .357 mag which also shoots .38 spl. Swapped the springs and polished everything inside and out. Shoots .38 like a velvet pillow because it has a little weight to it, but not as much as the GP. I paid $425 new on GunBroker.com a few years ago. 20150817_172951.jpg 1.jpg 2.jpg

    I've been looking for one for more than a couple years. I haven't found one. When I ask, I have had dealers offer to order one. I'd rather find one in a shop where I can give it a good once over before purchase.

    If you haven't fired a .327, you might want to try one first. They really bark. It reminds me of the .30 carbine in a handgun.

    I know that about .327, but also know that I can load it with 32 H&R, and I have a lot of 32 H&R brass.

    Like you, I would really like to handle one before buying, or at the very least, by posting here, maybe get the opinions of someone that already owns one.
