WTB new .357 wheel gun need advice
 
FTF friends, I am new to the revolver world besides an old .22 mag that I have. I own several semi auto pistols and various rifles so I am not new to the firearm world.

I am wanting a .357 revolver with either a 4" or a 6" barrell. I am not partial to brand but I do want a good firearm. I have a budget of around $600. Suggestions are greatly appreciated on make and models. Thanks !

I'm a big Ruger fan.

Double Action = GP100
Single Action = Blackhawk

Ditto, GP100, a lot more folks will say the same about it as well. Built like a tank, eats any ammo, takes abuse like a Cuban welterweight. If you have the means, Colt Python, yummm!

The Taurus 608 might be interesting. It's an 8-shot .357 that can shoot .38 and it has a ported barrel. ~$500. We are considering one ourselves.

Ruger, Taurus, or Smith N Wesson, Colt had some good ones but some of their 80s stuff had issues. Here's a GP100.

Look for a used Ruger Blackhawk and with the money you save pick up a used .357 lever action to go with it! ;)
