    If it helps...it's definitely not worth the money. Not by a long shot. Hate to say it, but that's my honest opinion.

    Ok, that does help.

    It'll be interesting to see how it sells compared to Colt's new "Cobra".

    I think that the Colt will blow it away. The Kimber will not be around long unless the price drops quickly. The MSRP should have been in line with the Colt's projected $699. Even that is pushing it. They could sell both revolvers for $575

    Here is my current carry gun: S&W Alaskan Backpacker in 44mag. Scandium frame....not pleasant to shoot with 44mags!

    But I usually carry 44spls in it around town....so it's close enough to 45ACP!!! But, one of these in 45LC and 45ACP would be very nice!

    Since I only seem to take these out to the range when there is someone with me that either can't handle a 44mag or have just never shot one, these poor neglected wheel guns rarely see the light of day. The 686-1 and the Competitor I have never even shot yet! So thought I'd give them their moment in the sun!
    Starting at the top left to right:
    S&W 686-3 Silhouette
    S&W 686-1
    Dan Wesson 5"shroud 4" barrel
    Dan Wesson 4"
    S&W Competitor

    Tell us about the competitor.
    What game is it designed to compete in?

    Well, pretty much anything, bowling pin, Silhouette...others...especially since with the rail you can add an optic. Adding and removing the weights allows you to customize the feel more than you'd think. The revolver isn't light to begin with and most of the weight is up front even without all of the weights! I forget the acronym for the run and gun match similar to IDPA, but allows a lot more movement and gun types, including 'race' guns.

    dbarale,
    I picked this one up about a month ago, $750 on Gunbroker. The tile it's laying on is 4.25" squares. It's a little uncomfortable with upper end ammo but 800fps 185gr XTP's are not bad. A Scandium frame and a Titanium cylinder yield a 21oz. 45acp N-frame and it carries like a dream!!

    IMG_4280.JPG IMG_4274.JPG Here's an Old Model Ruger Super Blackhawk that's been worked over by Alan Harton. It's wearing Roy Fishpaw Dall Sheep Horn grips. Perfect in every way, but I never fully bonded with it

    Me either. That's why I hit the "Buy it Now" button. I was considering a Smith 69 .44mag with 2.75" barrel or a 3" GP100 in .44spl. When I stumbled on this one I never looked back. I don't currently load .44's but have PLENTY of .45 brass and pour my own "practice" bullets.

    I'd stay away from the new GP100 for a bit and let Ruger get it's act together, I haven't found one yet that didn't have the funky front sight that isn't seated correctly (dovetail is too high).

A pair of 2 1/2" Smiths - a 19-2 and a 686-3, and a pair of 5 1/2", nickel, 44 Special, 3rd Gen Colts, one wearing ivory. Definitely too nice for me to own

    I like Model 15s, so here's a couple . The first one is a 1957 4" 4 screw . The second one is 15-3 snub from the late 60s.

    Rescued this one today from the pawn shop . I never owned a Single Six and generally prefer the shorter barrels, but there's something about this one. Very nice condition with boxes and all the paper work plus the .22 mag. Beautiful wood on this one. So any long barrel fans out there?

    Beautiful revolver you have there. N frames don't fit my hand size, but I'd buy one like that in a minute. Did you know Mr. Linthicum? I have a 1911 that he apparently built from a Springfield frame and a STI slide with his name on it. It's an interesting pistol , probably a competition gun since it's in .40 cal and has some mods.

    I spoke to him a few times. Didn’t really know him. I had a couple two-tone 5” 1911s he built. Nice, reliable guns
