I understand revolver hype

Yesterday I went shooting with my brother my father and one of my fathers friends and my fathers friend allowed me to shoot their sick as frick colt single action army

I was scared at first from a video I saw on Brandon Herrera Darwin awards of a moron nearly doming himself from revolver recoil

Holy shit it was fun loading it is a pain in the ass but shooting it was too much fun

I hit the targets 4 times in a row which was good

I want a revolver now

          Stop talking about shit you don't know about. nu SW is utter shit that regularly fails.
          the current mr73s are still the same as the old ones beside that they are now bought to be safe queens. meanwhile SW revolver of all frames consistently crack.

              probably by the ever increasing footage and people having their l frames crack from normal use. and let's not talk about k frames or X frames lasting less than 2k rounds which almost never happened in the past.

            Exactly my point, they are a status symbol now rather than a tool. Again, a new S&W, tuned up by a competent smith like TK will exceed an MR73 in smoothness and lightness. In fact this is true of any of the super revolvers like Korth and Janz too.
            My supercar comparison is perfectly apt, they get left in the garage while Cletus and Jimbob buy a piece of shit car and slap a 1000hp dyno'd engine in it that then runs circles around the Ferrari on a track day. The S&W are what gets used for competition race guns because you can tune them however you like, a 4.5lbs DA is still reliable with federal primers.

            >I'm genuinely curious where this parroted meme originated.
            One thing to note is that the .357 Magnum used by the French is far more powerful than the .357 on the American market. In the US, the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturing Institute (SAAMI) determines industry standards for pressure and dimensions. In Europe, this role is filled by the CIP.
            When the .357 Magnum was first introduced, it was a fire breathing monster, operating at a max average chamber pressure of about 44,000 PSI. These loads were fine in large frame, all steel revolvers and gained an enviable reputation for effectiveness on the street. A 158 gr SJHC could be pushed from a 4 inch barrel at 1500 fps.
            In the mid-90s, S&W got tired of repairing broken small frame revolvers that could not withstand high volume firing schedules with full power .357.These were essentially revolver frame intended for the much more docile .38 Special modified to take the longer and hotter magnum rounds, and were smaller and lighter than the full size revolvers that the .357 was originally chambered in. Subjected to high round counts of full power .357,throats and backstraps predictably scorched or the revolvers wore themselves out and lost their timing. S&W dealt with these issue under warranty for decades until they grew tired of it and petitioned SAAMI to lower industry standard max average pressure for the.357. SAAMI obliged in the mid-90s by taking about 25% off the top, lowering allowable pressure to 35000 PSI and considerably reducing the performance of the .357 on theAmerican market. The CIP never lowered pressure standards for the .357. They still load it at the original 44,000 PSI. This allows them to get not only much better terminal effect from traditional JHP and JSPs, but also allows better performance from specialty munitions like the Geco Metal Piercing and other anti-armor rounds.This adds capabilities to the .357 revolvers that are absent traditional duty handgun rounds.

              I’ve heard this before, anon.

              The definitive proof would be “before and after” pressure landings in subsequent editions of a loading manual, would it not?

              You’ve narrowed it down the the mid-90s, care to focus it a bit sharper?

                And that’s it right there…pussified the .357 because their K and J frames couldn’t take the pounding, and despite the lore springing up that if you fed a K frame a steady diet of .357 it would “shoot loose”, numbskulls didn’t listen.

It was a nexus of dudes writing books and articles for the gun industry and generating marketing hype for products no one was asking for. This continues in the gun industry to this day.

                Well we'll see how mine does. I've got 1k rounds of 357 right now that I'm planning to put through this gun in the next 6 months or so if I get out to the range as often as I'd like. It's a fully stock (besides grips) 686-6 with partridge sights.

                Foe the people considering Spohr, those are designed by a group of gunsmith who have been working on 686s for a long time. They addressed every commonly seen weakness when designing their 'S&W-like'. If mine breaks in less than 5k rounds and Smith won't warranty it, I might buy one of those next. I've also got a GP100 that I plan to shoot 1:1 with the 686 so we'll see how it goes.

              pray tell, lead breather, how will a gunsmith improve on the beefiness of a frame? Fricking moron. The mr73 trigger is above okay at best and not suited for sport competitions without tuning. You're comparing the best duty revolver of its time to a do it all range toy 686 that can be tuned for competitions.

                An L frame doesn't need beefing up.
                The frames and cylinders aren't their weakness, just read

                Ultimately the durability of a 357 revolver will be defined by a few key features.
                The bearing suface area at the end of the yoke tube gets beaten by the cylinder under firing. More surface area = slower to peen = slower to develop endshake.
                Cylinder to bore alignment is affected by all sorts of factors, but this will be defined by the manufacturing process(like line boring) and tolerances of the design. The more out of alignment, the sooner it will take its toll on the forcing cone.

                A couple more:
                The thickness of the forcing cone will be important as fatigue and flame cutting does eventually wear it out.
                The cylinder's ratchet can wear out, either by slowly peening from endshake slamming it into the frame or just from the hand(pawl) through cycling. The peening will cause headspace to grow while the ratchet wearing can cause timing problems than no hand replacement will fix.
                The cylinder latch/lock that sits in the bottom of the frame can actually peen the window in the frame opening it up more. This can cause the cylinder to not lock up, skip notches, or be out of alignment.
                The cylinder itself, if it's heavy/too big, can peen the stop notches badly. 6 shot N frame 357s and especially the 6 shot 357 Redhawk absolutely beat those notches to death under fast dry firing. Don't use them as race guns.

                The MR73's fabled toughness I believe is more asterisks than reality. They're tough, but so are adequately sized revolvers.

                I've not seen measurments out there of the critical areas of the new MR73s, is the forcing cone thicker? Dunno. Is the yoke tube bearing surface greater? Who knows. Is the steel better? Probably, but BHN tests don't tell the whole story either.
                Frames themselves don't really matter and the concept of "frame stretching" is made up fuddlore that comes from misdiagnosing endshake and damaged cranes.

            Excuse me, brother, but there were .36 caliber black powder revolvers in the 1800s.

            Granted, not in the 1875 Remmy which was competing with the 1873 Colt for the Army contract and thus stuck using Army calibers, but the .36 was not unknown in those times.

    As a kid growing up I always loved revolvers. I dont think they still make them like the used to but I could buy ring cap guns made of actual metal and had weight to them. I think it was the 90s when they were forced to start adding the orange plastic ends to them because prolly too many stupid niglets would get shot waving them at cops. But id take my pocket knife, whittle the orange plastic cap off so it looked like a real gun and the weight felt right too. Also if you aged the caps they were more explosive and gave it more of a kick, so Id buy them a year in advance and wait.
    I lived in the country and Im also white so my parents didnt worry about any trouble like that back then. Id always have a stockpile of caps to use and ones still "aging". Goddamn..I was born a /k/ommando

      They still sell those metal ones on Amazon, fellow cap gun apprecionado. I discovered them when trying to find more of the shitty orange cap guns for stupid fun - can also confirm that the caps "age" - i pulled the trigger on my little orange detectives special and the fricking report + muzzle flash shocked me. Later on I saw that the plastic behind the hammer was melted a bit. So funny. I love my Taurus 856, btw. I'm gonna get myself one of those cheap. 22 cowboy plinkers REAL soon

      Idk if they're 'safer', but modern revolvers are indeed very safe. They can have malfunctions and parts breakages like any gun. Germany makes some excellent revolvers, look up Korth. They're basically a S&W 686 knockoff, but very well made.

      Very much so. You can literally see the entire mechanism at work.
      You can open the loading gate or swing out the cylinder and see all the chambers,
      You can watch the cylinder revolve and on a double action, watch the hammer rise and fall.

      With modern transfer bar hammers, there’s almost negligible risk of an ND/AD if you drop the thing.

      Other than all that, even with it fully loaded, if you don’t pull the trigger, it doesn’t go BANG.

        Revolvers have just as many if not more moving parts than common modern semi-auto pistols. They have different things that can go wrong.

        What is true is that a revolver is less likely to suffer from any sort of ammo related problem, like not feeding or cycling correctly with low pressure or hot load, and isn't sensitive to overall length of the cartridge. It just has to be under max. This is why 357s can fire 38.

      A single action is physically incapable of firing unless someone wieners the hammer, a double action meanwhile will have quite the heavy trigger unless manually wienered.

      They are also quite reliable since they have very few moving parts compared to a self loader.

      The issue is of course capacity, old black powder revolvers also have a tendency to chain fire which will cause trouble.

      Unless they are a nagant revolver they also can't be suppressed effectively because of the gap between the cylinder and the barrel.

      Depends on the revolver and its wielder, just like anything else. A triple action revolver is easy to operate and so generally unsafe for the overconfident. Pulling the hammer back can invite disaster since the only thing to do is lower it via trigger pressure.

      Somebody needs to start building a hammer shroud red dot mount for revolvers with a bobbed hammer. There needs to be an actual mounting system on the muzzle, the top and grip of the gun for various optics built into the things. That one LEO got that flashlight mount made for some revolvers, not a bad idea. Would work well with a laser on there too and maybe a pressure sensor on a tyler t grip. Some of these firearms are stuck in the past. Everyone shat themselves when lever actions started becoming "tacticool", but it's the only logical progression for this shit. Just look at the S&W lever that just came out. People love it. All you gotta do is make it tasteful and you're fine. Yes, I find it highly annoying that ONLY Taurus is innovating revolvers.

    Are there any revolvers I haven't considered that might fit into the high quality+durability category that I'm looking for?

      Ultimately the durability of a 357 revolver will be defined by a few key features.
      The bearing suface area at the end of the yoke tube gets beaten by the cylinder under firing. More surface area = slower to peen = slower to develop endshake.
      Cylinder to bore alignment is affected by all sorts of factors, but this will be defined by the manufacturing process(like line boring) and tolerances of the design. The more out of alignment, the sooner it will take its toll on the forcing cone.

        A couple more:
        The thickness of the forcing cone will be important as fatigue and flame cutting does eventually wear it out.
        The cylinder's ratchet can wear out, either by slowly peening from endshake slamming it into the frame or just from the hand(pawl) through cycling. The peening will cause headspace to grow while the ratchet wearing can cause timing problems than no hand replacement will fix.
        The cylinder latch/lock that sits in the bottom of the frame can actually peen the window in the frame opening it up more. This can cause the cylinder to not lock up, skip notches, or be out of alignment.
        The cylinder itself, if it's heavy/too big, can peen the stop notches badly. 6 shot N frame 357s and especially the 6 shot 357 Redhawk absolutely beat those notches to death under fast dry firing. Don't use them as race guns.

        The MR73's fabled toughness I believe is more asterisks than reality. They're tough, but so are adequately sized revolvers.

    Here's an example of cylinders and cranes from a Redhawk and GP100.
    The GP100's bearing surface is angled, and therefore substantially lesser than the Redhawk's flat surface.
    The RH cylinder will literally destroy 357 brass before being hurt, but those stop notches can peen in a hurry with rapid fire.

        Sometimes brass just has faults, this 44 Mag didn't make it. I've run 357 Mag in the Redhawk up to the point the primer pocket won't hold one after the first firing. Don't really push it that hard anymore because I have to beat the case out with a wooden dowel.

      i love my R8 but i strongly suggest you get the TRR8. there are ZERO kydex holster options specifically for the R8. speedbeez has one but its obviously designed to fit a TRR8 with the bottom rail removed. Also there aren't many practical light choices for the R8, most will jut out past the barrel and ALL will require a tape switch unless you want to do the cope reddit build that uses a rail extension.

      other than that is a fantastic combat revolver, a good length and just the right scandium mix to make it handle and shoot well.

        custom kydex is easy, but the damn thing is not a "fantastic combat revolver".
        its entire purpose was shooting around a cop shield without an auto slide bumping off the shield and causing a jam. it's a 1 purpose weapon. unless you're making entry with a shield, it's dumb.

          no, thats just a made-up purpose by S&W in a desperate attempt to try and sell a revolver to police in the late 2000s, theres nothing specific about the R8 that makes it work better with a shield, its just an 8-shot .357

          its a good combat revovler because 5" is a good length, 8 rounds is 'satisfactory' for combat and it doesn't weigh 3lbs.

            I've also considered what anon said but never did it. I would like to get some guns from games I used to play. Like:
            >Benelli Nova (CSGO)
            >Benelli M1014/M4 (COD 4)
            >MP5
            >FAL (MW2)
            >P90 (COD 4)
            >AWP/AWM
            Hell the Nova is pretty realistic. It's cheap on the used market. I've also considered an FDE P250 because sand P250s were just ungodly common finds in CSGO but that's a little moronic of me. I've considered making stencils of some of the camo paint patterns from certain games on beater hunting guns like shotguns but they all looked like shit or didn't blend in anywhere. And I'm moronic enough I'm considering getting an Ultradot Pan AV just for fun. Would be neat to chuck on some of those guns from COD 4 since the airsoft red dot they modeled their red dot off was a knockoff of the Pan AV.

            It's fun being able to just get a gun and set it up in a specific way for fun IMO. Want to set up a 10/22 for hunting? Go ahead. Want to get another and larp like it's (year) (country)? Go ahead. Want to get a third and...?

    My 4 year old shot a gun for the first time yesterday. 1848 Colt Dragoon. He had been asking for a while if he could shoot "the cowboy gun." If you don't have at least one cap and ball revolver in your collection, you're missing out. I have the basics for self-defense, but I hardly even enjoy modern guns anymore.

            You can get a 50 cal plastic ammo box and throw a hand press in there alongside your dies and other reloading supplies if space is an issue. If/when you upgrade to a proper bench press you can always keep that hand press as a portable reloading kit, helpful if you want to try different loads on a whim at outdoor ranges.

      All my bullets have a cannelure or at least a lube groove. Can use a taper, but even without a place to crimp, a bevel base jacketed/plated bullet can sometimes allow you to avoid flaring the mouth.

      I always flare out my case mouths so crimping them ensures they always feed into any revolver including my friends, if I was being super lazy with my range ammo and was only shooting one revolver I'd probably skip that step.

      If you want, take pics and tell Ruger.
      Rough SP101s are common, for some reason it is the redheaded stepchild of ruger's DAs. I diy'd mine and it needed lots of help from endshake correction to properly fitting the trigger plunger, hammer dog, and even the pawl(it functioned, but that's all you could say). I still need to chamfer the unfinished forcing cone, it's cut square, but has no relief angle. Probably use a 5 degree because it won't see much cast lead.
      The chambers also need honing lmao.

        I probably will. Its not just the muzzle either,the bottom of the frame where it’s rounded for the cylinder to swing out is unevenly machined and the trigger needs some work, I am not a trigger snob in the least. Is there a way to shorten the da pull? I assume so, I had hoped it would be kinda like a smaller security six I have but absolutely not lol (hiding sadness).

              Yeah it's nice for staging, but you're comparing the longest trigger pull on the market to the shortest.
              The SP101 is more guilty that Ruger's others because the smaller hammer and trigger means that it takes more movement to send the hammer rearward.
