Kimber America did something that I had not expected: the company went retro and introduced a wheel gun at the 2016 SHOT Show. The new Kimber K6s is a compact 6-shot Magnum revolver that is likely to get a lot of attention in the coming months. The biggest thing about the gun is the addition of an […]
Korth announced a new 9mm conversion kit to transform a Smith & Wesson L-frame revolver chambered in .357 Magnum. The conversion allows for the use of 9mm “rimless” cartridges in the revolver without needing a moon clip. The conversion kit comes with the cylinder assembly and speed loader. To convert the gun, all one has to […]
Ruger announced a new version of the LCR chambered for the .327 Federal Magnum cartridge. The new revolver is the exact gun that should have been introduced with the round in 2008 – but will it sell in 2015?
Taurus was showing a new convertible revolver at the 2015 SHOT Show. The new version of the classic Model 85 has a thumb spur that (intentionally) twists on and off. The concept, as explained to me by a Taurus rep, is the revolver can be made “hammerless” for concealed carry but revert back to a […]
Korth will be showing the Sky Marshal revolver at the 2015 SHOT Show. This six-shot wheelgun is chambered in 9mm and does not need to use moon clips to chamber or extract correctly. Here’s what we know so far…
It seems the end of the road has come for the Taurus View. According to the Taurus USA website, the Model 85VTA – or the View – is no longer in production. This should not much of a surprise to many observers of the gun industry. The View was an interesting exercise in “how small […]
According to information I’ve been sent, Charter Arms is set to reintroduce a version of the Undercover revolver called the Old Glory. The Charter Arms Old Glory is a five shot revolver chambered for the classic .38 Special cartridge. The gun is +P rated, so full power self defense loads are perfectly fine in this handgun.
Charter Arms will release a .45 ACP version of the Pit Bull revolver early next year. The gun is the third caliber offering in the Pitbull line, with the 9mm and .40 S&W already on the market. Let’s take a look at what we expect the Pitbull to be…
In the category of guns that I don’t want to shoot is the new Taurus View. It looks a little funny, but it is the size of the gun that suggests it would not be any fun to shoot. The gun is very light, and the grip only allows me to wrap a few fingers […]
Advanced Technology International (ATI) announced new grips for the Taurus Judge and model 85 revolvers. ATI appears to be taking a different path than other companies that make thin, low profile grips. These grips appear they could make shooting the guns as comfortable as possible. And, let’s face it: the new grips have a bonus […]
