Fav 38 Snub Nose?
RON L here = SERESURPLUS
Over the years, I have had a lot of really good ones! I did try and like the S & W J Frame series in a Model 36, 37, 38, as well the 6 Shot Offering from Colt in the Way of the Detectives special (New Model with shroud), as well as "Agent", a simular snub nose, 6 shot, but in alloy, those were good to! I did Try a few Charter Arms "Undercover and Undercoverette" Snub Revolvers in 38 SPCL as wll as 32, but they always left me thinbking that they were nit gonna hold up? I never Realy had any Big issues with them, But they felt cheap and too light to hold up over seriuos use, so I dumped them! Snub 38's soon fell out of favor in my buys soi I stopped looking at them, later, I bought a Taurus Model 85 in Blue and later one for my Wife In Stainless, BOTH WERE EXCELLENT Copies of the J Frame Smith and Had I not been laid off and wife wwas Verry Ill, I might still have those two? I didn't buy or own a 2" or any 38 Revolver till I recently (Last Year or so), saw an Armscorp Model 200 4" revolver! I got it at a time when $ were hard, but it was well under $200.00 with tax out the door! I triede and use it and liked it, but it was a little large for the sort of carry that I was used to? I saw later that they offered a snub nose Model the Model 206 in a 2" and 38 SPCL and as the 200 Model was, all steel? I have owned this Little Copy of the Colt Detecive Special for near ayear now and I have to say, it's pretty darn good! It's not as smooth as my Colts or Smiths were, but it feel god in the hand,ballences well, and shooting is what you'd expect from a much more expensive revolver, it shoots well, and for a 2" is typical of the groups that I expect at 20 yards or less! This one is a KEEPER! For anyone Looking, a 38 Snub is still a Good Pick, simple and reliable, it will do it's job, if you do yours? Close in short range self-defence as the revolver is expected, will do that job well!
