Default Ok, I get the premium revolver thing.

I have never been into revolvers much. My wife wanted one so I got a Ruger in 45lc a few weeks back. Well I was looking to buy something today and I just could not find anything I really wanted. I spent a few hours wondering back and forth looking at all the ars, misurplus, and Glocks determined to get something. I fingered this and decided to take it home. Dang itís shoots amazing. It a Smith Wesson 617 in 22lr. The way it feels when you clock the hammer has a smooth mechanical feel that you donít get with black plastic. I get the revolver craze.

I prefer single actions
This is what I like and use Freedom Arms 97
Some people comprehend revolvers
Some are clueless
Want ultimate power
Get a revolver

I had a Classic I think 617 six shot for a while. It was a great shooting pistol that even did well with the bulk packed crappy ammo of that time frame.

They can be easily slicked up unlike other designs like a Ruger.

No use for RINO either kind.

We had a 617 when the kids were still little and they had just came out. Great guns. Basically a K frame 38 in .22lr.

I prefer the Smiths to all the others, better feel/balance, smoother actions.

Picked this 63 and 317 up over the last couple of months. The 63 is more in line with the 617 as far as build and feel goes, just on a J frame.

The 317 is an Airweight, and a bit different, but its a decent shooter. I just swapped the front and rear sight blades out earlier this afternoon. They come with a funky "V" notch rear and green fiber optic front, that pretty much suck.

63(R) & 317(L)



ETA: Target Sports has been running sales on 22's off and on. I got a couple of cases of CCI Blazers for $180 a case with free shipping. Not sure if they are still running that, but its worth watching out.

I picked up a 4" Rino earlier this year. Cool guns, but different. Maybe a little too different, for me anyway. I didnt keep it long.

Heres a link to what I posted when I got it.....

I have lusted after a K frame smith in 22 lr for along time. i bought a taurus 94 in 22 lr and it is a piece of crap. My bearcat has taken the role of the smith and is a great pistol. 357 shines in a revolver. I shoot 38 spec a lot and once in a while 357. While I like revolver, I have more auto loaders in 22lr than revolvers? Life just happens that way

Not how Smith did it on the 317. The front sight is rounded on top instead of square, making for a kind of weird sight picture, and the V notch just made it confusing.

When the green dot was in the notch, where it seemed it should be, the top of the sight wasnt aligned with the top of the rear sight.

It was also difficult to see the narrow top of the sight (between the top of the dot and the top of the sight) for more precise aiming. It would have been better if the top of the sight, down to the bottom of the dot, were the fiber optic part, and been squared off like a standard sight.

If they offered a three dot fiber optic, like a night sight set, where you have square notches and front sights, and dots in the right place, it would be better.

Got a half dozen revolvers from NAA Minis all the way up to s&w 460 8 3/8" barrel.

Lots of fun.

S&W's are great revolvers, but that's no excuse to take a jab at Ruger. I know for a fact that a GP100 can be slicked up. I use to shoot 1500 matches and a few of the competitors were using Rugers. I got a chance to handle a couple of them and they were every bit as smooth as the S&W's, I don't know how they got them that smooth but they did and they were. On top of that these same guys were consistently shooting mid to high 1400's.

I like ruger revolvers. They are beefy , the way a revolver should be. If I wanted light I’d shoot my polymer semi or get a ruger LCR.

22lr revolvers are cool because you can get a decent capacity ( 10 ) and they will eat any ammo you can feed them just about. Remington bucket ammo , no problem. Sub sonic , no problem.

Far from being a premium but I just like the looks of it.

I have worked on all kinds of guns. I have one Ruger, that was a Christmas gift. It is a stainless bull barrel MkII that jams a lot. Other than that I have turned down free Rugers and SKS/AK's. If they work for you, great.

Unless you're European and are used to some real odd angles for a pistol grip... It's not like other grip angles.. IOW, shooting it is not as natural feeling as say, a 1911...

The angle on the Rhino requires you to force your wrist down & forward at the same time. Not terribly comfortable.. It's quite accurate, and does mitigate recoil of .357 mag pretty well. However, for me, it's a rarely used range toy. It's also relatively light for its size. Internally, the clockwork is quite complicated ( from what I've heard ), so repairing it yourself may be unwise. If you are looking for a range toy- go for it. Otherwise, considering the price, you might want to buy a better upper end brand name revolver.

If you are looking for an "odd" range toy, Rhino's may be the ticket. Don't get me wrong, it's a fine gun and a marvel of technical engineering.. It's a fun gun when you take it out; for me, however, it's a range toy.. It shoots well, and is accurate, and easy to use, other than the grip angle.
I've got an older 6 inch target model, if you are wondering. It's big; relatively ugly, but mean looking.

Since developing wrist issues ( from work) I haven't took it out and shot it; probably should.

LOL this. And heaven forbid you get the snubbie bug. Or the P&R bug. Or the single action bug. Or the bog bore revolver bug... or....
Too many.

Just picked up a 2" RB Model 10 to add to the snubbies collection. Beautiful, a true Roscoe.
