In one of the recent InRange videos Ian wasn't shooting because he injured his shoulder, I wonder if that's where he hurt it.

I've got some weird bug up my rear end about finding a single gun so customized to my bizarre whims that I'd be unable to part with it, but I think it might be awhile before I can finance something like that.

You should really have a good long look at Freedom Arms if you like that gun in the picture. You may find exactly what you are looking for.

This is a really good idea that he should definitely do, especially if he can find a used one that floats his boat. They never seem to get shot more than a handful of times before getting put back in a safe and sold. I think I've seen them ~$1800 on the low end, which is insane for their quality and workmanship.

So damned good.

I got my Premier Grade .454 for $1200. The standard .454 83 is one that gets bought a lot I think as a very first gun by fans of Point Break or that one guy's books, and also one that gets frequently and almost immediately resold.

If it's just the general shape of the thing that grabs you, most of what you're seeing is just a standard Ruger Bisley (I think?), excepting the sights, caliber, lanyard ring, and that Indiana Jones looking muzzle band thing of course. And an action that probably feels better to play with than a swimsuit model's honkers, I can only assume. Power Custom also sells a Bisley frame and Bisley hammer upgrade for most any Ruger.

I think that band on the revolver is what they call an "express front sight base" since it's visually patterned off the muzzles of the old safari "express rifles".

Bowen Nimrod, probably in .500 Linebaugh (from the look of the cartridges) http://www.bowenclassicarms.com/cat...onversions.html at roughly $2600 that's a bargain, a similar handgun from Linebaugh's company will run you at least twice that. Like Sixgun said, Freedom would probably be a bit easier on your bank account.

I think the band was just an easier way to put on the front sight. In the case of my King here I believe they did it just because they did custom work and had a rifle sight of the right height, so they slapped it on:





Ends up with the same effect.

I would imagine that Bowen put the band on there as a stylistic thing, but older ones were probably just done that way because it was expedient. The side effect being that it does look hot.

Went for that Mateba Grifone but gave up at 3400. I feel a little relieved at not getting it but that was a hell of a price for one and I'll be surprised to ever see one again in 454.

I wish to scale back my previous list and add some changes:

Mid-grade 1911 (like a Ruger)
Either a Mossy 930 or Beretta A300 - I know the A300 is superior, but I don't know if I would shoot skeet enough to warrant a gun; having an auto shotgun I can do stupid poo poo to might be good.
45/70 Levergun
SAA in 357
LCP - just as a range toy. It's a neat little gun I regret selling and would grab just because it's cheap.

Then, pick two from the list. If I scale back to what I'd actually shoot a lot of and not give any fucks at all in the least about scratching or dropping it, then I definitely need to scale back some.

It's because it's dumb and stupid. I think some goon just bought the 41 mag version of that, which is instead good and rad. N frame 357s need to have 8 chambers or have a name that starts with registered to get me going

The 58 owns bones and the 520 just needs a round butt to be perfect.

Did you buy it? The 58 is real neat to me.

The 520 just doesn't make sense to me. The fixed sights show it's intended for popo carry, but I can't imagine why anyone would've chosen to walk around all day with it when there were smaller, lighter K frame .357s that held the same amount of ammo. I can totally get a gun-enjoying cop making the size sacrifice to the N frame for a caliber starting with 4, but .357? nah

Butch Cassidy
Jul 28, 2010



Nah, if I had 58 money, I'd be too busy taking up buplet casting to afford to shoot it constantly.

As for the 520, beefy enough to actually feed 357 Mag, a cylinder that isn't comically fat, and heavy enough to tame recoil well.
