I love my DWs, but sometimes I pick up some crappy revolvers just because I love a full underlug.

Really nice trio of wheelies there.  I’ve got a 4 in. blue and it’s a jewel.  IF only Colt would listen to what the market has been telling them for the past 20 years they’d keep themselves out of bankruptcy (which they reorganized 2 years ago) and have a whole lot of happy customers.  They have guaranteed business and product sold, yet they come out with a Charter Arms copy loser, the Cobra.  Then they have the ignorance to state “depending on the success of this one, we may consider other revolvers”.  Whatever.  The only thing keeping Colt treading water is their royalties and revenue on the M16/M4. Their 1911 lineup is mediocre there are plenty others out there doing a better job at it.  Anyone can make an AR-15 as well these days also.  Colt is GONG DOWN!!!  I give them 4 years at best!!

Agree whole heartedly. For years others have made affordable peacemaker clones and have made a fortune riding the wave of single action shooting popularity. Colt stubbornly refuses to make a more affordable peacemaker. That’s just stupid. Colt desperately needed a popular offering and what do they introduce? A Gatling gun clone that’s priced out of most peoples range.

 

Re introducing the snake guns would be immensely popular but again, Colt stubbornly refuses. I agree, I don’t think they’ll last long either but, frankly I don’t care. I prefer my Dan’s.

Colt is making Pythons again. Check Gunbroker. I ain’t buying a new one but I do aim to increase my inventory of originals. BTW, I have a S&W TRR8 that is awesome for yard defense. Next I want a Ma Duece on the roof. And a mount on the bed of my truck of course. Have to be prepared for Alien UFOs.

My newest rarity is just Awesome. It is a high polish blue 6″ Phillips & Rodgers Medusa Model 47. I will get some photos eventually. Stronger than a DW, Manurhin or Korth supposedly. There were less than 500 made of which 250 were sent to Europe. Maybe. Other sources say around 200 made. It is capable of chambering and ejecting over 25 cartridges ranging from 30 CAL to 357 Magnum. Rimmed or rimless. It has little hands that grab the cases and eject them. Haha. Actually, it is similar to a Korth or S&W 547. The chambers have a 5° forcing cone in them that reform bullets of short cartridges  before they enter the 11° forcing cone in the barrel. Of course, 357 Mag are more accurate. IMHO, the fit and finish is as good as any revolver every made.  It cannot chamber 357 Sig because that has a 40 cal case. It shoots 32 acp, 32 S&W, and 32 mag, 9mm, 380, 38 spec, and many more.
