It's kind of true. My local pawn shop said the same thing.

His .357's were running $250 to about $500.

My buddy's piece...






Trying to make the funds work out right. Gotta run through my taxes this weekend and see how big a check Sam is getting. Maybe I'll have a little slush left over. Maybe he'll take a payment plan.

Nice gun. If it comes with the OEM grips and the box, it's definitely worth quite a bit more than $200. If you could pick it up for $350 - 400 you'd be doing just fine. $450 would be retail.

I'm gonna try to get him out to the range in the next week or so, give the thing a go. Then we'll see where the price lies.

Thanks for the feedback.

I suspect you'll find that with that 4" underlugged barrel the revolver balances very nicely. With 38s it ought to be a total pussycat, and with 357s the recoil will be noticeable and snappy, but not painful.

Any Rhino love out there? Most of the reviews I have read are favorable. I saw this 5" model at my LGS while picking up some other goods. After I fondled it for while I put it in lay-a-away. It feels like a well made gun and the ugliness grew on me. It was developed by the same guy that built the Mateba auto revolver.

Ain't she purdy.

I can't love the looks of that one, but the concept is interesting, the lowered bore-line to reduce muzzle-flip......ought to work. It also looks like the whole thing is machined from one piece of metal, frame and barrel, rather than having a separate barrel screwed into the frame. I'll be interested in hearing about it once you get it. I've never seen one in the flesh, only a few pics.

How about some narrative to go along with the pics of these neat/interesting/gorgeous revolvers? I am not one to hold with the adage that a picture is worth 1000 words. A pic of a revolver is well-and-good, but it's nice to know what it is, where you got it, how you've used it, some 'history' as it were, or plans for future use. Did you hunt with it, defend your life from a hoard of zombies, win a match, or even blast a lot of holes in a Diet Pepsi can or punch out a nice group on a paper target? Let's hear about them, not just see them!

I want one, but I hear the DA pull is monstrous.

Another funny thing about those is that the "hammer" isn't actually the hammer, it's just a lever that allows you to cock the hammer manually for single action. I'm not sure whether or not it is possible to gently lower the hammer once you've cocked it.

Supposedly, yes.

There's videos and descriptions of the mechanisms all over the place.

I do like the cylinder release.
