    Hello all Ron L here = SERESURPLUS


    Got the "Itch" for a new revolver, have always liked a 2" snub, but hate to pay and deal with S&W or Colt and thier silly $! I put on Lawaway a Armscorp 2" snub, Kinda a clone of a Colt Detective special, out rhe door with tax new at $275.00! About 1/3 paid off as we speak! I had one of this companies 4" and was well pleased with it, but wanhted something smnaller and easier to conseal carry! Has a great feel in the had, might even take Colt Detective special speedloaders? Time will tell and with things the way they are, one more consealable handgun is always a good bet?


    Once it get it home and cleaned and shot, let all of ya know about a range Report as well as pics!

    .38 armscorp revolver paid off and home!

    Hello all


    Ron L here = SERESURPLUS


    I paid off and Picked up the 2" snub Armscorp .38 I first mentioned in this tread! It was a slick with oil item and I have to detaial clean it before I shoot it! It's all steel, 2" barrel and has a Colt Detective Special like feel about it, will look and see if speedloaders from the Detectives special or any other Colt "D" frames will fit? That or a S&W model 10? It's 6 shot and about the same size as either of these?


    Once I get a bit more .38SPCL ammo, will run it through the paces and give ya ll a range report, So Far, Looks promising!

    Good luck with the new revolver and can't wait to hear the range report. I have a S&W 2" snub nose model 36. Bought it used for $220. Blued version.

    Congrats on the revolver. I have planned on getting the .38 Snub from Charter Arms, but I'm going to wait until your report. Maybe I'll buy the Armscorp instead!

    From what I've heard, the Charter Arms revolvers have become JUNK. The owner of the company is reportedly a jerk and has squandered the company his father started. I would find a used Smith or Ruger.

    38 Snub Armscorp Model 206

    Hello all/Responce to Boris:


    Ron L here = SERESURPLUS


    Yes, it feels and looks sound! I never place a lot of faith in any gun, handgun, Rifle or Shotgun till I get at least a few hundred rounds through it! Then one knows how it shoots, feels when in use and any particular preference to some different ammo, or accuracy issues? I will be sure to post my Findings to the Group, as well, before then, post my own pics of the 206 I own! For the $, it's hard to beat and despite Armscorps reputation, I own now a 4" 38, a 45ACP colt Clone and this snub, all so far look good and once I test the snub, it will see if I'm 3 for 3? What costs of some Colt handguns as ell as what small J frame S& W costs here, I've settled for this one! Time will tell if this will be another functional Clone! So Far the M-95 Classic Copy of the BHP, by Argintina is flawless! The Colt clone 45ACP out shoots a few Match 45's I've had, not that I've done a bit of work on the slide and barrel bushing! The Norenco Clone copy of the Model 37 Ithaca is more of the same! Great fun guns, work well and cost a lot less $!

    Armscorp Model 206 38 Spcl Snub

    Hello all/Responce to Tom the Roofer?


    RoN L here = SERESURPLUS


    I will try and let you know how it shoots and yes, I'd give it a wait on the Charter arms, I compared this one, to a few new Charter Arms Undercover Models at the last show, this is a lot better weight, Made, and feel! If it shhots anything Like how it feels in the hand, it's a keeper! If you want a full steel frame gun, this might be better? if your wanting a lite frame for better carry and ease of consealment, Charter might be better, but I'd think, not hold up as long, or better? Time will tell, But I will be honest and share with the group, even if it's a negative experiance! That way, everyone learns by my mistake or gain?

    Armscorp 38 Snub Model 206

    hello all/Responce to Fapprez

    Ron L here = SERESURPLUS


    I responded to your letter as Toms, but I will be sure to let you know how this one shoots, and then you can make a decision of what might serve your needs better? Are you planning to carry more than shoot, or shoot, more than carry? if you need a lite gun, this one might not be best, it's full steel and a bit of weight? The Charters I felt were lighter and consealed better as they were 5 shot vice 6! I think this one will shoot more on point, as the weight will help with Muzzle flip? It's gonna be a short range deal and I paln to test out to like 25 yards! That will give me a sence of how it does at 7FT, 7 yards, 15 yards and 25 yards! All on B-10 Police type targets, if it hits center of mass on those at the ranges told, I'll be happy with it and it will be a keeper, if not, I'll sell it off and let someone else tell me that it's me, not the gun? LOL

    I've never seen an Armscor revolver in Indy. Not at any shop, or any gunshow.

    .38 snub Armscorp Model 206

    Hello all/Responce to RJ


    Ron L here = SERESURPLUS


    Yes, we never saw the 2" snub here in WV either! We did get some of the 4" and based on that, as well as Shotgun news, I took a chance! Lots of good deals on medium Priced guns if you read Shotgun News and other trade papers, do you not get those in your area? Buying only Colt, Smith and Ruger, is a flawed plan, I buy what works, what I can affoard and what I like! You can buy and pay a lot more for the others and in the end, are they any better? Time will tell on all that? I've took a Chance on a Rock Island 1911A1, no one had ever seen one here, great gun! Did same on a Argintine M-95 Classic licenced copy of the Browning Hi Power! Ditto, was great as well! At times, one simply can't just go with what one seens in your local area! You limit your pick of many great items that way!

    Oh I realize that, I was just commenting that I've never seen one. I've seen Armscor 1911s but was not aware they made revolvers.

    .38 Armscorp Snub

    Hello all/Responce to RJ

    Ron L here =SERESURPLUS

    YUP, I was not aware they made revolvers eitrher, till I saw one in shotgun news! A Gundealer buddy of mine got a 4" revolver in and I bought that, based on it's quality I then saw a chance to get him to order a snub 2", thats the deal, yea see it, yea go with whats available and one takes a chance! No one here has seen many of them either here in my stste, but now, seeing mine, I know he has ordered quite a few more in 4" and 2"!
