I picked up a used stainless Circuit Judge after getting my wife excited about having it for home defense. I took her down to Wal-Mart so she could see it & handle it, and then made my deal for the used rifle/shotgun.
My 2-cent review...It is a fun little carbine to shoot. I never thought much of The Judge revolver's appearance, but it takes on a whole new (and better) look with the buttstock, forend, and longer barrel. The stainless finish has a high sheen to it, almost looking like nickel plating, but it does look pretty sharp.
The furniture needs a little help. The blast shields do a fine job of protecting the shooter, but they also direct quite a bit of residue toward the wood forend. The factory finish seems little more than just stain, so I disassembled it and put a few coats of tung oil on both the forend and the buttstock. One other minor criticism is that the buttstock attaches to the frame with nothing but the same screw used for the Judge handgun. I believe that screw should be a heavier gauge to hold the larger buttstock, but I'll live with it until it fails.
So, a little help with the wood treatment makes it easier to clean, and keeps the forend from becoming stained. Aside from that, it's a great buy (for the wife, of course), and there are some good HD .410 rounds on the market since the Judge became popular...
