    You. All the gun manufacturers got together and decided your the reason they’re not making more break actions.. anon you are why we can’t have nice things.

    The gun has to be heavier than a revolver with a swing out cylinder in the same caliber.

    The market for 1930s gangster movies has collapsed. No recovery in sight.

    the latch becomes a weak point for higer calibers, over time it wears and becomes more likely to have a catastrophic failure.

    Modern design strategies and metallurgy could counter act this, but its too late. Theyve become a thing of the past. I love them regardless

      Most of it has already been listed, but I'll bump for a bit. Why? Because the locking mechanism is weaker than a swing out cylinder, meaning it becomes heavier. The only advantage of a modern revolver over an autoloader is the more powerful cartridge, and that makes the problem worse. Finally, there's only a very, very limited market of people that would actually buy on.

      >Modern design strategies and metallurgy could counter act this, but its too late.
      Modern design and metallurgy would only mitigate the weight and complexity difference, not solve it completely. In an ideal swing out revolver, none of the force of firing is exerted directly onto the locking mechanism. In an ideal break action revolver, it still generates force on the locking mechanism, no matter how you design it.

    It's because you fags won't actually buy them, at least not most things that could realistically get made. Petition Ruger to make a 22WMR break action or STFU.

      I think there might actually be an NAA mag mini break top out there.

    I wonder if making the barrel a 6 o' clock one would help with break-actions.

      Where would the ejector go and how would it connect to the hinge?

    These are made in India in .32 S&W Long. A Pajeet with enough pull to get a carry permit will then pay > $1000 USD for this puppy. Perhaps a 'poll tax' version of gun control.

    For real money (> $10K USD), there is the Anderson Wheeler 7-shot .357 Webley-pattern revolver made to best British gun standards.

      Those enlightened few of us who have actually shot revolvers to any meaningful extent know it's a gimmick that newbies and nogunz romanticize after they watch Tri-Gun or see their first Schofield or Webley.

      That's right, forget the whole top-strap integrity issue for a moment. Manual of arms is slooooooooooooow
      >break: strong hand has to be on grip until action is fully open
      >swing: strong hand only needs to actuate cylinder release for a split second
      >break: support hand has to move to on top of barrel for leverage to open
      >swing: support hand barely slides from grip to under frame to support cylinder while open
      >break: strong hand has to return to grip so action can close
      >swing: strong hand doesn't need to be on the gun for cylinder to close

      You may be asking at this point why the first and last points are even a thing at all. Because the leverage is required to open the gun because it needs positive extraction. This isn't a thing on swing outs because they have ejector rods.

      Yes, working the ejector rod is an extra step, especially when done with the strong hand, but it still saves time.

      In regards to the top-strap issue I would bet it could be solved today if someone wanted to. Metallurgy has come a long way from where it once was. Even frame stretching on modern magnums is a thing of the past.

      All that said I still think it'd be cool, it's just impractical. Then again so are bullpup shotguns yet KelTec sold the piss out of them for years.

      Did they ever end up on the market? They've been vaporware for years.

    I'm guessing part of the reason is because the frame isn't nearly as strong. I guess it's less solid.

    Does anyone have experience with the H&R 900 "sportsman" series of top-break revolvers? I was recently told by my mother that back when we were a prosperous sort her family was involved in H&R at a really high level from the 50s up until shortly before my birth so now I guess I need some H&R guns from that time and these seem cool as hell

      They are a lot of fun but H&R revolvers in general are made very cheaply compared to S&W/Colt/Ruger. Most of their 22s and particularly the 999s I've seen are in very bad shape because people shoot them a lot. It's hard to find a good one and even the ragged out examples go for retarded prices.
