Bummer that Euroarms has stopped making them . One of thier stupider desicions for sure . I hope if someone else picks up the Euroarms dies for the R and S models they keep it to the tight standards that Euroarms had set for the R and S . To give it to Pietta would be a travisty probably unless they make a special department in Pietta like they did for the LeMat revolvers stricktly for the R and S . Lets hope Uberti gets the dies or wants the dies . Not many people can afford or desire a David Pedersoli R and S , so were screwed apparently in the market of getting a reasonably priced reproduction of the R and S anymore . I bought both of mine for under $350 each new, but notice whats left of them are over $400 to $450 if you can find one ?
Bad part of all this is Euroarms made so many dang models of this gun , some even with Walther Barrels , engraved models too , and now were can't get any of them anymore , well that just bites
Unfortunately if you have never shot a R and S , your desire for one is low because you probably don't think the price is justifiable at $450 .
The scurge of $150 to $200 mediocre revolvers with crappy finish and ugly trigger pulled Piettas has ruined the market for Mid-Range revolvers like the wonderfully accurate and beautifully finished R and S .
That , and people are stupid mostly and really dont understand quality comes with a price
And yes , DurangoKid , it is always good to see someone else with one , as I KNOW they understand , and also probably dont think like normal people either .
Which is a good thing !
So I am am hanging onto mine , untill they pry um from my cold dead freekin hands .
