    Well, some of you know of my baby the .45 Colt Hammerli Virginian 4 5/8". It's a rather rare gun as only a thousand of each cal and barrel length were made. Well, I ran into another Virginian and I bought it without even thinking.
    Hammerli Virginian .357 Mag 7 1/2" barrel.:p
    :cool:

    The top one is mine the bottom is what the 357 looks like. :p

    Very cool!Single actions are really fun to shoot.I bet the long barrel .357 7 1/2 inch has a neat feel and sound when it fires.It's really fun to take them out for the first time to shoot them isn't it.

    Very nice, im a huge fan of revolvers due to the fact that they cant jam like a pistol. How much did you pay for it?

    Its great to have the set also! I have two, both unfired 5 1/2" barrel Virginian's in 357 and 45. Many do not know that Interarms imported these for years, then started to make their own..... the Virginian Dragoon. They made them about 10% bigger to handle the 44mag. They have a little larger grip and are a real joy to shoot.

    Just got a new 1 of 1,000 Lipsey Ruger Falt Top Combo revolvers. These are SS 4 5/8" Bbls white grips. The warning is faint under the barrel. These are .45 Colt and .45 ACP calibers. They are on the old .357 frame and the old XR3 grip frame. They have the Micro rear sight. The balance and 3 lb. trigger makes them an off hand shooter. These guns have the new cylinder bore process so every throat is the same. A nice SA .45.:)
