    Strange gunshow find

    Went to a local gun show in hopes of finding one thing and ended up buying something else completely different. I spotted it off the corner of my eye and couldn't make up my mind weather to buy it or not, so I had the vendor and me flipped a coin for it......I lost >_>....so here it is....whatever it is.

    Its a double action cowboy gun of Spanish make in 38 special. It locks up tight and indexes well enough with no pitting in the bore. The action is smooth but very heavy even in SA mode. The cylinder free spins at rest(by design it looks like) and the hammer seems to have a hammer block of some sort. Unfortunately I was unable to get to the range as its rented out to a private party today, but maybe in the future I can run some of my light reloads through it.

    Back to square one with saving up money again.

    Looks cool, good shape. Getting a new gun n not being able to fire it is like getting a cool new toy on christmas and not having batteries for it.

    Cool, hope you can come up with some more info on it.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.
