The Colt says trooper on the barrel and the S&W does not say. The S&W I have no idea how old it is but the Colt is at least 30+ year old.I do like the Ruger platform. My brother has an SP101 i like it but i would feel better with that 6th round like the GP100 has. I have never seen that one only one i have seen was a security six which im guessing is its father???
and what models of S&W and Colt are you shooting Mill?
If you're looking at older revolvers do a little research on the Ruger Security Six. They're built like a tank and can be had for decent prices. There are a bunch of them listed on gunbroker now. I picked up a 4" blued a few years back for $360 and love it. If you pick up a blemmished one Ruger will do a work over and reblue for $130. Good Luck!Thats awesome that gun is older than me. I would love to find some of the older guns like that i love the character they have. The smiths new guns though have the lock mech i dont like so would be looking for older models.
Does anyone know when Smith started with the Lock Mech?
GP100 or security six would be great (I have a GP, my brother has a security six)Thanks for all the replys everyone. I think i do like the rugers i have held a few of the security six and like them. never held a gp 100 but seems like it is the child of the security.?.
Only issue i have with smiths if i cant find an old one then have to worry about taking the locking mech out of them.
There are Three I would recommend, S&W, Colt, Ruger they all make 5 and 6 shot revolvers theres One which I dont recall the name of that makes a 7 shooter as well but I dont recall the name nor would I recommend it as it would be bulky and heavy.I am looking to get my first revolver. I want something in 357 mag, 4 inch barrel and 6 or more rounds. Does anyone have any idea as for what im looking for. Thanks for the help.
S&W makes the 686+ and 386, which are seven shots. Taurus makes an imitation of the 686+.There are Three I would recommend, S&W, Colt, Ruger they all make 5 and 6 shot revolvers theres One which I dont recall the name of that makes a 7 shooter as well but I dont recall the name nor would I recommend it as it would be bulky and heavy.
If you want more than a six shooter then you would want a semi auto like the Remington XD Models.
