Revolvers. I love revolvers. Did I mention how much I like revolvers? Of course, I do have some really nice autos. I love them too. But I really love revolvers.

It's a target revolver with the cylinder in front of the trigger and action. The hammer is internal and can be cocked with the little lever on the side (it's double or single action). The cylinder holds 8 .357 rounds. Only 10 were imported to the US.

The second pic is a carbine model that sold online for $5000+.

I'm basically with you.

To answer the OP's question though - I don't consider myself an expert in much of anything. I can shoot relatively well, and it almost doesn't matter what's in my hands. That doesn't mean I can troubleshoot why a gun is broken (as much as I would love to be able to).

Maybe someday I can develop an "expertise" in wheel guns. In my opinion, though, if someone says they are an expert on S&W revolvers (for example), they better be able to tell me everything about every one of them, including possible years manufactured. And whatnot.

I'm not there yet. Still learning. Always learning.

That's an awesome looking gun. Isn't there a. 44 Magnum one too?

Everyone is always learning. I don't think that any one person knows EVERYTHING about a certain line or era of guns. All I mean is what is everyone's guns they enjoy learning about, looking at, and manipulating the most.

With all respect to your opinion, you may not have followed or met some of the FTF members I have on this forum...
I'll put it this way...if I were in Cash Cab and asked what the production period and successive model changes were for an obscure firearm I know several that I would PM to win me the money....if they answered....

My favorite are military and law enforcement side arms from black powder revolvers up to around the Vietnam War era. As I've only been able to get handguns recently, mine is my Waltger P1.
I know a little about a lot..That creates the illusion that I"m smart...Pretty neat trick..But it's allll an iilluusionnnn..

I am one of the 1911 crowd, I love old military firearms. But I think it's the history that attracts me.Well..Except when it comes to the 1911. Because everyone knows that it's the end all be all of all things handguns.
