Wheelguns on the rebound?

Post by tector » Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:41 am

Seems like there is some renewed interest in revolvers again. I mean in the past few months you have Kimber getting involved, Colt diving back in and then at the super-premium level that Nighthawk/Korth joint venture. I have to say I like it.

I don't know if there on the rebound, but there certainly seems to be some new models for sale.Colt, Kimber, Korth. S&W is pushing its custom shop. Ruger has some out in 41 Magnum and 44 special. If they can sell them then we may see more. Revolvers are fun to shoot and while I don't see myself saving up for a new Korth who knows what deals will show up. S & W #10 started being manufactured around 1900. They still make them today. Just my .02.

I have noticed that prices of new and especially used revolvers seems to be going up at an alarming rate. :-k

I also think a lot of the renewed interest in wheel guns is coming from people that have discovered the right to keep and bear arms recently but live in places that are not firearm friendly. Revolvers don't have the scary image that Glock has. Plus they marketed differently.
