mine has been great,,, really,, guess i just got lucky,,, like i said,, i have over 1k rounds threw mine and its been handed down to me so there is no telling the real round count,,,, please tell me,, how could a snub nose .22lr revolver go bad

it clocks perfect every time and the hammer strikes hard enough every time

Inferior metal, inferior tooling, inferior parts, inferior manufacturing, inferior quality control = inferior gun. They "might" work fine until they don't. Just hope it's not in your hand when that happens.

I didn't say it could have been a RG collector, maybe a midnight special collector, or just someone that thought it would look neat in their revolver collection. Value, as is beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. Besides "auctions" are more about obtaining something that setting the value of something. I personally would never own a Picasso or a Salvador Dali, I just don't like their paintings, but look at what they go for at auction (crazy).

Jim

Back in the 1970's I owned a nickel plated Iver Johnson top break 38 Spl, I also owned a S&W model 27, there was no comparison as to which was the better quality, but the Iver Johnson was a neat looking revolver, not one that I would take to the range to shoot.

Different strokes for different folks.

Some people carry a real grudge over the Brady bill. I figure there are some hardcore Brady haters out there with walls covered in small cheap revolvers and pictures of Jodie Foster and John Hinkley, Jr.

Bought two of them NIB a few years ago for $75. A retired lady found them in a bedroom closet after her husband died. Never been shot and still had all the paperwork. I got them from a mutual friend who was selling them for her since she didn't want them.

Everyone here assumes the bidder has the intention of shooting the gun. It's possible that he is collecting every .22 ever made and it's going to be under glass the rest of its life. Or an NRA instructor bought it and a Raven .25 to use as examples of "Saturday Night Specials" to NOT use for self-defense. Maybe it was an ex-RG employee who was nostalgic. We never know what the intentions are of other people and it's important not to superimpose our values on them.

Did anyone consider that a millionaire member of the Brady Campaign may be buying up guns one at a time to melt them down? Now you're wishing the auction got $350 so the seller could put it towards a new Glock!
