We sent back a new Armscor 38, the finish was horrible. The crane was sloppy, and the cylinder felt gritty and rough. Not what one would expect from a brand new gun from the factory, we will not be ordering anymore. Instead, we are stocking the new Charter Arms 38 Undercover. For the cost, it is a pretty nice revolver.

If they still have any, J&G had used S&Ws starting at around $225.

Already been said bide your time and find a used Ruger or S&W. Cheap doesn't have to mean lower quality pistol if you take your time.

Look around and find a good used revolver---I would stick to S&W or Ruger---Taurus guns are good lately, the early ones NOT---same with Rossi or any of the old Spanish revolvers---NOT GOOD. Ask a friend who is into shooting to look at a possible purchase before you buy! Good luck.
