    RANCH HAND

    I've seen more adverts in magazines for the Ranch Hand.

    I have not seen anything about manufacture or delivery.

    Anyone hear any good news about the Ranch Hand?

    They're out there, but pretty scarce and if/when you find one you'll pay a premium price for now. By year-end they should be readily available.
    If'n it ain't broke, then it don't need fixin'

    The local hardware store gun department had three of them a couple of weeks ago. One of them went to the former police chief now the new county sheriff.

    Re: RANCH HAND

    Those are some interesting arms. I would like to get one for myself if I had a use for it. Looks hot though.

    Cheers,

    Re: RANCH HAND

    I handled one a couple weeks ago in a store in 38/357, I believe.
    It is probably still there.

    I liked its looks. It appeared well made.

    I tried to imagine how I would shoot it.
    But I am not sure how to handle that big lever.
    I am a far cry from Josh Randall.

    I would enjoy it though.

    I wonder if it comes in 44-40?

    Thanks

    The Rossi sight doesn't list the 44/40 but does have the 38/357, 44 mag, and 45LC.

    Re: RANCH HAND

    I think this firearm is mis-named. I live on a working ranch and for the life of me I cannot figure out what purpose it would serve as my "ranch hand". Neither pistol nor rifle, you got me. A better name would be "Hollywood".

    Re: RANCH HAND

    I always thought the "Mares Leg" Josh Randall carried was pretty neat looking, but not as neat as the prices I have seen on them.

    Now comes the "Ranch Hand" with a much more realistic price so once again the itch to get a new "TOY" I don't know how practical it would be though!

    Re: RANCH HAND

    To me, the Ranch Hand, is one of those firearms designed for fun. And if you have fun with such, by all means have at it.

    I can't think of a practical reason for one, but someone might.
    Texas is neither southern or western. Texas is Texas!

    Texas friendly, spoken here.

    Re: RANCH HAND

    I agree that fun would be my biggest reason to own it.
    I watched Josh as a boy.
    Got his rifle and holster as a toy for christmas at about age 6.
    I have never forgotten it.

    Now for hunting or farm use, the model 1892 carbine is the best I can imagine for handy.
    I handle one almost every day.

    But I have never carried the ranch hand.
    Maybe it would be handy in some way with opportunity?
    It just seems liking aiming it would not be pistol and would not be carbine.
    I can only imagine shooting like Josh for now.
    I would not need any more reason though.
