I shot it a bit and really discovered while a nice gun just not for me. I sold it to a guy at my club who has a 645 and wanted the 745 for his collection. This will probably be the last time I get...

Looking back at this list I got everything but the 929. Bought and sold the Mark III in favor of two Browning Buckmarks. One of them is ridiculously tricked out.

All three are great. The 66 is a K frame and lighter. 686 has the best trigger and the GP can have a great trigger with sime work. I own a 66 and a 686+ currently. I have owned GPs in 4", 5"and...

Both of those guns are on my list for .44. My one LGS has that Alaskan. I'm going to have to fill the hunting revolver need first or start testing some loads out of my S&W 686+ 6" and then buy...

I missed it. Figured it would be a tough gun to sell in Il at this time of the year. Should have told my LGS to put it back for me. Ended up adding a S&W 66 to the collection. I'll wait for a...

I see a guy at the local gun shows that sells RRA uppers and at the last show he had 6.8 complete for $499. Don't know if they'll ship to New York. His name is Hill Top Guns out of Colona, IL.

IMHO almost everything in the Springfield lineup on the 1911 side is a solid value. You can spend more money on a Kimber, Colt or others but you won't be getting much more for your money.

BTW, my...

Missed my shot at the Redhawk. Already sold. Had a lightly used S&W 66 Combat Magnum that I decided to add to the collection. I haven't had a 6 shot .357mag for awhile and at $550 OTD it seemed...

Nothing about the quality for most of the brands just the ownership. Marlin has gone downhill but I own a couple H&R Ultra Slugs that are fantastic. Not the best fit and finish but they shoot.

I've got a line on a used Redhawk with a 7.5" barrel and scope rings. Price is $650 OTD. I could go to the S&W but it seems that the opinions posted so far have the Redhawk and 629 about even. I...

Ruger Redhawk or S&W 629

As a deer hunting handgun and occasional range toy. I'm letting my Taurus go to a good offer and am looking for a chance to upgrade. Excluding the used market they are very close to the same price...

I wasn't going to be in the market for either so I really don't care. Rem/Freedom Group has owned Para for a couple years and hadn't destroyed quality. Para does make models that go well above...

Still haven't made a decision. Not real sure that I'm going to buy either. Gun show over the weekend had RRA complete upper on sale for $499 in 6.8 and I still didn't buy. Can't quite get my mind...

You normally can't just buy a S&W lower. $60 would be a very good price. I just got 2 Anderson lowers a couple weeks ago for $55. The S&W imprint would be worth more.

Actually, I believe the Ruger Mark pistols are taken in design from the Japanese Nambu pistols not the Luger.

The Mark series is nothing remarkable and Browning does it better. The Browning has a better trigger, easier slide to cock and far easier disassembly for cleaning.

Blackhawk.

Everything else is something that another company already did or currently does better. Ruger makes a good solid gun but there is nothing about them that makes a Ruger a must have.

Right now the market for ARs and 1911s in my area is so oversaturated that they are selling for 1/2 of what they would have been a year ago. A frankenAR is a dime a dozen and when you can get on PSA...

You only get so many firings out of brass so cost is something of an issue. Also the availability of the brass. 6.8 is nowhere near as common on store shelves new or once fired as .223 is. None of...

No supressor as I'm in IL. We shotgun for deer here but I could use on coyote and possibly hog if they get as far north as I am. This would mainly be a range toy. The ballistics look better on the...
