Any Freedom Arms owners in the house?

Post by Jeepsnguns » Thu May 12, 2016 10:09 pm

I've been looking at many Freedom Arms guns for sale on Gunbroker for a good long while now.
7 or 8 years.
So last Saturday I finally hit the buy now button on a model 97 that I have been eyeballing for a few months.
I picked it up today.

I read somewhere online that the model 97 is smaller that the average Colt/Ruger SA frame and I believe it.
It's mighty comfortable in my smallish hands.
Looking forward to giving it a test run.

Disclaimer: Not my photography, I copied the pics off G.B. that the shop selling the gun posted.
These are pics of the actual gun.

Any other Freedom Arms owners here ?

I just got a long barreled Freedom Arms in 454 Casull about three weeks ago.

I have not photographed it or fired it yet.

I am looking forward to that day

Build quality on the FAs in outstanding

Have you had the opportunity to shot your 454 yet?
I haven't gotten around to shooting mine yet. ](*,)

The level of quality in the manufacture is unbelievable !!!
Just shouting out to any of you out there pondering a Freedom Arms purchase, if you are the sort of person that enjoys precision, my Freedom Arms Premier Grade revolver fit & finish is in the same league as any Wilson 1911 I have ever owned if not better.
Might actually be better!

A friend had the Freedom Arms which converted between 45acp, 45 Colt, and 454 Casull, I thought it was fantastic. I only every fired it in the 45 Colt and 454 Casull setups and it was fantastic.

I have one of their 1" barrel .22LR mini revolvers. They quit making them about 35 years ago. I won bets hitting full-size military silhouettes at 100 yds with that tiny gun. My hold had to be exactly the same for every shot, but it would hit the silhouette every time if I did my job.

100 yds with a 1" BBL revolver is insane!!!! =D>
I've owned a couple NAA mini's, 1.25" and 1.5" BBL, couldn't hit what I was aiming at from 7 yds. to save my life but that's just me. [smilie=011.gif]
I've since gotten rid of those particular guns.

I wanted one of their 454 for years. I got to shoot one couple years ago. Fired 5 rounds...4 and 5th rounds were way more than I could comfortably handle. I was offered to shoot 5 more rounds but I declined. I decided I didn't need the power of 454 and that 44 magnum or 45LC would be enough. Decided to look for a Ruger and found a 4 5/8" New Flattop 357. Loaded up some 180gr cast bullet with H110 to get 1,500 fps and decided that's enough power for my purpose.
I have to agree that the quality and feel of that revolver was amazing but for the cost I couldn't justify a safe queen.
