:yeah::yeah::yeah::yeah::yeah:I love my Kimber 1911s but they have their work cut out to improve on my Smith 13 & 65. I don't see it happening.
You wouldn't like my 13, I bobbed the hammer on it. But the 65 is stock except for a combat rebound spring and grips. I can still cock the 13, but it's not necessary.:yeah::yeah::yeah::yeah::yeah:
My 3-inch nickle Smith model 13 is my favorite handgun.
I don't particularly care for DAO, except in a 2" snubbie.
I don't see many people "Pocket-carrying" the 3" model. Why not put a hammer on it???
Folks can still fire it DAO if they want, but they could also cock it.
Hah just a 3" round butt version would be nice . You can shoot 44 sp out of a 44 mag no problem.And speaking of which....
How about, a fixed sight, 3" heavy barrel, round butt variation of the model 69, but in 44 Special. I promise you, it'll sell like hotcakes.
Bobbing hammers is another thing I guess I'll never understand.You wouldn't like my 13, I bobbed the hammer on it.
Check out the Nitride Coated Charter Arms Pug. 2 1/2" barrel with underlug that is light weight and easy to shoot. At 21 oz unloaded it's easy to tote.I like them but the price seems a little steep. They're not exactly filling a void in the market either.
How about a titanium 5-shot 44 special. There's a void that needs filling.
Less likely to snag, don't need to cock in a fire fight anyway, with a smooth DA pull you will not want to cock the hammer anymore, and just is sexy.Bobbing hammers is another thing I guess I'll never understand.
Were you unable to shoot it double-action with the original hammer design?
I can "kind of" see it on a 2" snubbie (that will be carried in a pocket), but why bob a 3" gun? Surely a 3" revolver wouldn't be carried in a pocket. I guess I can see the benefit if a woman will be carrying it in her purse.
I've owned 4 over the years , 2 classics with the 3" barrel (son of sam guns) and 2 pugs with the 2.5" barrels. Sandy currently owns the last one I had.At'll do.
I had a 44 special Bulldog once upon a time. Should have kept it.
On what? My pistol box the range?Less likely to snag,
THANKFULLY, I shoot mine at paper more often than I do at hostiles.don't need to cock in a fire fight anyway,
I highly doubt it. Besides, if it ain't bobbed, at least I still have the option to cock it when I want to.with a smooth DA pull you will not want to cock the hammer anymore,
Totally disagree.and just is sexy.
LOL, Just saying.On what? My pistol box the range?
