            That's interesting, given that it's a conclusion I have drawn myself from observing their quality go downhill. Nobody told me that. I learned it the first time I picked one up and fucked with it for a while.

            >Basically, just go pick one up and fuck with it for awhile
            I own 4 "Hillary Hole" Smiths. They're not as nice as the earlier ones. S&W has been on a steady decline since before WWII. Colt held on longer, but they fucked up bad when they stopped Python production years ago and laid off a ton of workers with decades of experience.

            > No need to ask permission from spergs.
            Who's asking permission from anybody? It's a simple observation the old guns are better. And given that the King Cobras don't suffer from boomer inflated prices as badly as the original Pythons there's no reason not to consider them if you're looking for a Colt.

                Absolutely. And it's also good that Colt re-released the Python since that dropped the prices of many of the originals too. But sadly the price of the old Pythons are still disproportionately high compared to their rarity and quality.

      This was my very first gun and an entire piece of the frame broke off after 17 rounds of 38 special factory ammo. Yes colt fixed it for free. Then the rear sight wouldn't hold zero (target model). Yes colt fixed it for free again. I didn't give a fuck that time. Sold it for the exact same amount I bought it for to some shmuck because i live in a cuck state where you can only buy 1 gun every 30 days unless it's a transfer from an individual to another and he was rich enough to pay the premium to cover my taxes.

      I'm in love with mine
      Making good revolvers with a high level of QC requires hand fitting that isn't cost effective today, so there are a lot of lemons with any revolver. Luckily they tend to present themselves within the first 200 rounds or so and if you buy from a company like Ruger, Smith, or Colt they'll fix it (I've seen guns from all three break pretty immediatly).
      Finding holsters and grips is a little annoying, and you have to make sure you aren't buying something for the V frame old school KCs, but the gun itself is fucking awesome. Gorgeous finish and the nicest DA pull I've ever felt, including old colts, pythons, and tuned berettas. Single action on mine has a tiny bit of creep, feels like a really worn in Sig 226 or something.
      Mine doesn't have any visible machining marks and the fitment of the side plate is as good as you'd expect, as nice as any Smith I've held but you can still see where the metal meets unlike a 5k dollar Korth.

        I really do want it ngl. Are they better since CZ owns Colt now? I keep thinking I should either get a new king Cobra or some old smith. I'm not sure yet. I love how the king Cobra looks but I kinda hate the qr code on the new ones. It's a toss

        • 6 days ago

          The new ones are as good as anything else, still revolvers which have never had amazing QC. Got mine a few weeks ago, absolutely no complaints. The QR does kinda suck but its better than picrel

          If you put enough rounds through it to get decent and learn the trigger and it hasn't broken by then, it should be good for at least a few thousand more rounds. People never acknowledge it but old guns with complex internals like revolvers and lever actions had to be taken to the gunsmith way more than a modern service gun, they were never as simple to work on or unlikely to break as glocks or ARs.

                From my math recoil is strongest with a heavier bullet, which tells me the 500 should have more recoil potential as it can handle bigger bullets. For example the Underwood 700 grain round is much heavier than the largest 460 I can find at about 360 grains.

                Anonymous

                I think what that anon is trying to get at, but failing at explaining, is that there are two components to recoil. There is the recoil energy and the recoil velocity. Most of the time when people talk about recoil they are simply talking about the energy but that's not the whole story. You can have two guns with similar recoil energy but the one with the higher velocity will feel "snappy" or "sharp" by comparison. Any trustworthy recoil table or recoil calculator online will compute both of those figures.
                To help visualize it, imagine a strong but fairly slow shove compared to a short, fast, slap. Both could have equal kinetic energy but getting slapped is more painful than being shoved. Lightweight guns and extremely high pressure loads tend to have more "snappy" recoil (i.e. the recoil velocity is high). Heavier guns, those with lower pressure or slower burning cartridges have more of a "shove" sort of recoil. It's the same reason why some monster black powder rifle has relatively pleasant recoil compared to some lightweight .300 magnum hunting gun even though the big black powder slug has more recoil energy.

                Even still the 500 should be higher on both measures.

                I compared using a set charge weight and gun weight is for my 460V so his longer barrel 500 may be less recoil, but the comparison is close enough.

                How can you do a comparison without knowing what rounds are being fired?
                And the longer barrel, and therefore higher weight and the center of gravity of the gun being farther forward, makes a big difference.

                >therefore higher weight
                The weight is huge. Consider that a 357 mag is quite comfortable to shoot out of a mid-size revolver, fucking sucks to shoot out of an airweight snubnose, and is a pussycat to shoot out of a full-lug long barrel target/hunting revolver.

            I agree that it's survivable amount of recoil for reasonably experienced shooters, Ive actually shot that model with the long barrel and brake and it really is mostly straight back.
            I take A LOT of new shooters out yearly, so the dial-a-yield on 460 is still attractive, but the gravitas of 500 magnum is also appealing. I'm going to be noodling on this for several months before I make a decision.

                Ah, that's because some of these barrels stretch out to 10 inch. It's easier on manufactured on low-production guns to keep the same cast and machining and simply throw a longer barrel on. Super redhawk barrels are screwed in with (not intended to be removed) so it's the same initial cast from the Alaskan. Barrels screw into the frame with right hand threads. The threads in the frame are normal, but the threads in the barrel are cut shallow on purpose. As a new barrel is screwed into a frame, the frame threads act like a die and cuts the barrel threads deeper. This works much like pipe threads and hold the barrel tightly.

                Not to mention, most people that buy a super redhawk want a heavy hunting handgun or something to deter lions and grizzlies.

                The are completely different revolver designs. The Redhawk uses a single spring design and has a full grip frame. The Super Redhawk is essentially an upsized gp100 meaning it uses two different springs and has a grip spike and has the frame extension to make it even tougher, and to allow two scope mounts on the frame if that is what you like. I personally like the look of the Super Redhawk as it has that al meat in the back with a pencil barrel look.

                The Super Redhawk was designed to replace the Redhawk, but during preproduction it was discovered that barrels would just...fall out, for some reason, so they extended the frame so the barrel had more to hang on to. Turned out to be fugly, but it offered a superior scope mounting location, so they decided to keep selling the Redhawk concurrently to this day and sold the Redhawk as a (more) hunting oriented revolver.

                The barrel problem was caused by improper lubrication during manufacturer, but the design was finalized before this was discovered.

      Is it true that the 500 magnum barrels get shot out after like 10k rounds? Not that a lot of people will shoot that many rounds out of there, but I guess it would make sense given how hot the 500 magnum round is.

        I would expect that the forcing cone would be the point of most serious degradation. You've got burning powder at peak pressure moving through the gap and eroding the interface.
        But I think 10k is a pretty reasonable design life for something like this. That's currently nearly $20,000 in ammo, which is a lot.

          I cannot imagine anyone realistically shooting 10,000 rounds of 500 magnum out of one revolver. Your average person probably buys it just to have a fuckhuge 50 cal handgun that will show it off to their friends once or twice a year. Personally, I probably wouldn't shoot more than 20 - 40 rounds out of one per year if I had one.

            hell, even if they do use it. something insane like 10 handgun hunting trips per year plus zeroing at the start of the season and the occasional range day will not get the gun to 10k rounds even in your children's lifetimes.

            Given ammo costs I can't even imagine shooting 357 10k times through one gun in its lifetime. I can easily do it on my ARs or AKs, but on a revolver that holds 5-6 rounds I can't imagine running that much ammo through.

          >I would expect that the forcing cone would be the point of most serious degradation.
          The local Range had to take out a .500 S&W Performance Center edition out of their renting collection last year because its forcing cone cracked. Don't know the round count but since it was a rental it most likely only got fed factory ammo.
          No idea if that's a known failure point on those, it just came to mind reading your post.

        It really depends on what ammo is being shot. Yes, the max spec .500 Magnum is very high pressure but I doubt even 1% of the ammo on the market is loaded that hot.

            just got some extra money and I'm having a hard time choosing between the redhawk and the Blackhawk...
            i know it comes down to single action vs double but idk which one i want more. i already have a rough rider and that's what made me want to get a more serious revolver, and that's single action and really fun to reload even, but i feel like I'm missing out on the swinging out cylinder and being able to just push out all the shells at once...
            >inb4 buy both
            i don't have that kind of money

            also what caliber? i was thinking 44 mag for the kick, but also the 357 mag is way more affordable and convertible to 9mm which i have more than a few spare boxes of already...
            can anyone who has tried both give me their opinions?
            I'm also open to opinions on other revolvers (that aren't Chiappa rhinos or Taurus)

            If you're using it for defense, Redhawk. If not, Blackhawk. Both will work equally well for hunting, but the Redhawk will be heavier and more expensive.

            >.458 WM to match your rifle.
            I'm dubious that the BFR would be up for .458WM pressures. I think I've seen some revolvers chambered for stuff like that buy I assume they were mostly custom jobs.

            It is a custom job, but .458 WM and .500 S&W are loaded to the same pressure. You'll wear out your wrists, both of them, before you wear out the gun.

          Check out that link, it's an amazing story. It doesn't say in this article I believe, but the son ended up shooting the bear with a Ruger Alaskan in .454. If you look up present day pictures of this guy, he looks phenomenal now, barely able to tell he was attacked.

          This story is the sole reason I won't trust anything less than .44 magnum hard casts against brown bears. As the article states, the bear charged 70ft in 9 leaping steps. Mag dump 9mm if you want, but penetration is very important and I won't trust 9mm anything to get through literally feet worth of fur, fat, muscle, and bone.

      Yes parts in contact will smooth over time but you could do about 20K dryfire cycles worth of smoothing in 5 mins with a stone. If you do 10K dryfires you won't care as much about the trigger pull because your muscles will be stronger though. Gun is fine. Work on yourself.

You could insert them all into the cylinder at once, then pull on the end of it and basically rip it off of the case rims.

      So far it tastes like putting it on layaway till you get the other half of 1200 freedom bucks while searching for some 3$ a round 454 freedom pellets…. Can’t wait to fire it though.

      Serious question though, in Canadian bear country do they expect you to carry a rifle all the time or what? I know you guys have a lot of weird ban stuff happening, but that can’t translate well to the middle of nowhere right? And last I checked something like 95% of Canada qualifies as the middle of nowhere…

        Short answer: yes they expect you to carry a rifle (Non-restricted firearm)

        I've never been a huge fan of the shrouded hammer though, but I'll let it slide, I like that gun.

          I kind of agree and the shrouded hammer is sort of hard to use in a pinch. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a model 36.

      I have the Ranger II in .22mag. There's no way I would make a single-action, five-shot .22 my carry gun and it was a complete "fun gun" purchase. Still, it's definitely solidly built and a blast to shoot. No regrets on that purchase.

    Which revolver would you use to kill a bear?

      Pretty much anything big bore, high pressure and barrel equal to or greater than 6 inches.

    It arrived! And holy shit this thing feels like a weapon compared to my Glock17. Probably because it can be used to revolver whip a moron to death if needed.
    It's a Model 13-1, so it's made in the '70s. Damage from the blueing comes from holster, mechanically the guns is fine. Paid 150 buckaroos.
    Very happy with it.

      Dude that's an awesome deal you got. Personally I think the heavy barrel and square butt is the best combination of the available options. Enjoy!

    How would you guys typically conceal carry a full sized revolver if you had to?(4-5 inch barrel). I have only ever carry a car in the appendix position but what are some other good concealed carry positions? My friend told me to consider a shoulder holster but I hear those can be cumbersome and you have to wear a open jacket so you can easily reach in. Right now I carry a .357 with a 2.5 inch barrel in the appendix position. I'd prefer to carry my N-Frame 5 inch barrel .357 but the thing in appendix position is uncomfortable when sitting.

    What are your thoughts on moonclips vs speed loaders? I have a gun that can take moon clips or just put bullets in the charge holes like normal. I tried carrying around the moon clips with bullets on them in my pocket and it just feels a bit weird. Feels like I might accidentally bend one if I sit down odd on it too.

      speed loaders make more sense to me personally

        I like moon clips because you would probably have to fiddle less if under stress or something. But carrying them around in the pocket just feels more cumbersome.

      Where do speed strips fit in with all this? Speed strips are simple to keep in the pocket but reload speed with speed strips seems horrific. Maybe I haven't practiced enough.

      How about half-moon clips? Would sit flatter in the pocket.

        Ah interesting, I didn't even realize half moon clips were a thing.

          I thought they were, but if not you could probably just cut regular moonclips in half.

      I've always been interested in firing rimless cartridges in a revolver, but it sounds like moonclips are almost universally reviled. After searching for a few years, I recently came across a Charter Arms Pitbull chambered for .45ACP that I'm super excited to shoot. It's got some sort of internal mechanism for holding rimless cartridges in place, so no need for moonclips.
      They've got them in a few other calibers, too, but I've never had an interest in .40, the 9mm had mixed reviews (plus, I've got enough 9mm semis, already), and I don't see much use in the .380 when there are so many concealment. 38spl and .357 options available.

    Went shooting for the first time in a while today. Somehow I was way more accurate with a j frame airweight than with a glock 19 or p365xl even though it beat the shit out of my hand in 50 rounds and has a way heavier trigger. Why might this be?

    • 5 days ago

      Because glock triggers are notoriously shit by default, which makes training with them obligatory. A heavier gun with a better trigger mitigates bad technique, at least that's my observation. When switching from a glock to another gun I keep the focus on persistent grip and trigger pull, like I'd do with a glock.
      Dunno about the 365 tho

    I once saw a ruger with the most disgustingly wide cylinder gap as a child, and was so put off I havent looked at revolvers since.
