    Just picked one up to tonight, now all I have to do is wait the stupid three days ( thanks Illinois ). I needed a .22 and I have been wanting a revolver to add to my collection plus I have always had a soft spot for cowboy looking guns. Does anyone else have one of these and if so how do you like it? I'll try to get pics as soon as it gets out of gun jail.

    Single 10? I had never heard of it before just now. I have a single 6 and it is flawless. The Single 10 looks interesting, but ugly.

    Lockport, huh? Lived there until 1975. Go Porters!

    Yea the sights make it a little funky looking but I think they will work really well. It feels really nice in my hand. For a town in Illinois I like Lockport, but I'd rather be living out in the free world.

    But I'm at the age where I need a F.O. front sight to see anything! :p

    I looked at one at the gun show in Princeton last weekend. Very nice gun. Is yours the nickel finish?

    Mine is matte stainless with walnut grips. I like the look, but nickle would be cool too, but I just hate chasing fingerprints on a nickle finish.

    I might change them, but if they are accurate I'll keep them. The sites almost made not buy it, but I figured I could always just put the standard single six sites on it. It's really going to be nothing more than a range toy for me anyways.

    Looks easy enough to change out if so desired. Bet they are great for seeing though.
