You can replace them, cause they still sell them. The company is still located in Tulsa Oklahoma.

I own a Chiappa 1873, and while it does its job, it ain't pretty...if you EVER buy one, get the case-color version, not their "blued" paint job version.
Managed to scratch the paint getting the plastic safety loops off it...Looking forward to breaking out the GunKote after I've shot it for a year...
and yeah, i'm going to get absolutely NUTS when I paint it...might even go Pink tigerstripe for the Wifey


Dan Wesson makes the best-shooting and darn-fine looking revolvers on the planet.

What is your favorite all around company for double action revolvers? Think about customer service, fit and finish, accuracy, trigger, appearance, what fits your needs best, cost, reliability, and anything else you can think of when determining what your favorite wheel gun company is.

I'll do another thread later for SA wheel guns.
Taurus, S&W, and rugers are all fantastic revolvers

Lots of support for S&W wheel guns. Seems like Ruger is a solid second place.


I'm sure I'll be buying a Ruger someday.

They did have some quality control issues when they first moved the manufacturing from Brazil to Florida in the Mid-to-late 1990's.
I have a 92 Stainless of theirs that is every bit as good as my Beretta 92. I know a few folks with 700 &800 series Guns that also have some issues, but their CS, like Ruger, is very good. I'm no "Gun Magazine Writer" although I wish I could get paid to do Gun write ups every day!(BTW thats a HINT to the Mods & Admin that if they want to do a full fledged online Gun Mag I'm available)
I Thought a few months ago I was gonna stand on the street with a sign that said "Will Work for Ammo!!"

Around ten years ago someone I knew asked me to try shooting his Taurus .22 revolver. It seemed to shoot OK, but when I opened the cylinder and pushed the ejector rod to remove the shell casing I was given an unwanted surprise. The star literally didn't grasp the edge of the rims of all the shell casings leaving them stuck in the chambers. I went with him the next day down to the LGS and traded it in for a .22 S&W light weight revolver.

I was in my local lgs last year looking at wheel guns. Didn't have a tremendous amount of money to spend and I let the manager know that. I asked to see a Taurus .357. The manager said " do you have an extra $100 to spend?" I said "maybe in a week or two." He put away the Taurus and handed me a Ruger gp100 and the bci paperwork. I got the hint and never looked back. Until Taurus gets their Qc under control, ill be buying Ruger or S&w. For an extra $100 I got a gun that is miles ahead of anything Taurus produces.

Although.....I read a recent review on the new Taurus 2 1/2 bbl revolver chambered in .454 casul and it seemed to do well. It's marketed as a woods gun in bear country. It wasn't a long term test but the pro's seemed to like it. I'd still take a Ruger in that calibre though.
