    Fell into a new single action today. Dropped into a pawn shop and this said "Take me home:"

    It's a Hy Hunter Western Six Shooter, .357 Magnum, made in Western Germany. Price was $274.50+tax for $310.00.

    Project gun, I'm sure........

    Not a bad deal! If it has a decent trigger all I see is the front sight might need to be filed down.

    Those were the days. I used to go thru the Hy Hunter ads every month. Back then you could order handguns thru the U.S. Mail. Anyway was this the same as Hawes Western Marshall?

    I got robbed when I paid $185 for my Colt in 1970. Damn it, I'm a freakin' dinosaur.
    But all kidding aside, it warms my heart to see others who appreciate the single actions regardless of calibre, make, or where they were manufactured. I love all guns and appreciate them all. I have noticed lately that more younger shooters are finally opening their eyes and can see there's more to guns than automatics and military look-a-likes. That also goes for lever guns.

    At least you have a pawn shop. All I got is two crappy gun stores. The only good gunstore is a little under an hour away.

    Not too sure if exactly the same, think trigger guard and backstrap of Western Marshal were brass? Any way only cosmetic changes, I think.

    Pawnshops in this area suck. Most of their used guns actually cost more than I could purchase the same gun new. After a few hundred trips one tends to just keep riding. They also grade the guns very poorly. If it's all in one piece it's graded as in new condition.

    A couple years ago a local pawnshop that has fair ammo prices had the exact 20 ga Mossberg I was looking for. The gun was priced at $215, it was in fair condition. They called it like new condition. I could get the same gun for $215 NIB. I had to go to that area a few days later so I brought my Mossberg that is in new condition. I compared it to their gun and started picking it apart. The Pawnshops response was to call me unrealistic. Yet, I had a 15 year old well cared for gun to show them. Usually when a seller calls a buyer unrealistic, it's the seller that is unrealistic.

    The Fast Draw craze of the 1960s created a demand for single action handguns. Many imports and the Great Western revolvers were marketed. This was also the birth of the Ruger 6 guns. Colt offered the Scout revolvers which never really caught on. The Colt New Frontier a work of art but was never chambered for the new .44 magnums.
    Cowboy shooting has brought back many of the single action classics. :)

    I looked hard at Colt new frontier 22 LR/ Mag. Combo but went w Rugers single six. Colt w have been a better investment.

    Single actions tend to recoil up vs double actions seem to recoil right back at you. Just watch a few youtubes of people getting whacked in the head...:p. Enough said...?

    I appreciate the warning, but I've put enough rounds through single actions to know how to avoid that problem.
