I actually like it, but the 'cylinder gap' is a little unusual.

The cylinder gap looks perfectly fine, as it's the distance between the front of the cylinder and the rear of the forcing cone.

 

If you mean the gap between the cylinder and the frame, nothing unusual about that either.  You can't shorten the frame, or else it's not an L frame and you can't move the cylinder fwd because the cartridge bases have to sit against the recoil shield.

I mean the latter, and I understand.

It still looks a little funny and detracts slightly from the overall appearance.

Still like it though - looks and convenient caliber. I just think revolvers are most interesting / useful in .44+ Beacuse otherwise a pistol will do the same job better.

Real revolvers are single action.

Your post is what a range trip was like in my childhood.

Fucking Hawes. Shit was made by Sig but not Sauer if I remember correctly.

That is the shit I learned on at about 13. Looked exactly the same. I loaded a zillion (aka couple K, which is a zillion on a single stage) 38s on a single stage for that thing.

I kind of miss it.

My brother still has the Ruger Super Blackhawk in 44mag.

A Super Blackhawk was the first handgun I bought, still have it 35 years later, still shoots good.

I bought a Super Backhawk 44 to shoot silhouette with when silhouette was new. It was, and still is, a tack driver.

 

I bought a Hawes 357 used for plinking and field carry. It isn't the one in the pic but has similar wear. The case hardening on the frame is absolutely beautiful. it's a tack driver too.

 

The most interesting thing I killed with the Hawes was a yellow jacket nest using a home loaded shotshell. Completely blew it the fuck away without a trace.

Everyone was on Elmer Keith's nuts back in those days.

How powerful can you make a 44 Mag without blowing up the gun? Men with big belt buckles were determined to find out, for some reason.

I had no clue who Elmer Keith was - I just choose well.

I'll be goddamned. I haven't kept up with S&Ws revolver line since I have one of everything worth owning. Looks like that's still the case, but who knew there would be fuckers dumb enough to buy a thousand dollar carry 9mm revolver when they could get the same thing in .357.

Except for a J frame I don't see the point in a carry revolver at all.

Revolvers are lame unless Dirty Harry or Rick Deckard are using cool looking ones.

Why 9mm?


Unless otherwise noted, expect that all my posting here is in true Doodie fashion.  If my post somehow upsets your sensibilities, well...there ya go.

You just cock the hammer and the bad guys pee themselves and run away. It's the pump-action shotgun of the concealed carry world. And not J Frame because train like you fight.

The double action revolver will make a he-man out of your trigger finger.
