    I did a lot of search, but couldn’t find any... Does anyone know of any moon clips that would work with Defender 856 (6 rounds 38 spcl)?

    So this saga begins with a search for a good 4" 38 for less than $300. I know...I was dreaming. I find one of these about every 4-5 months on gunbroker. Here I present to you a model 82 that looks a little rough, the seller's camera bringing out every finish issue.. He really needs to get a new...

    I took the Barkeep out for an afternoon range test. Today's target was at 7 yards and I used 8 different types of 22LR ammo. So how does this diminutive cowboy shooter handle? Using a manual eject rod versus frame ejector; I found it to be a little easier for me to use the manual ejector rod...

    I have a Taurus gaucho .45 colt single action that has been broken for several years. I finally decided to take steps to have it fixed and thus far I have been less than successful. The issue I'm having, is that I cant get the hammer to cock past stage 1. Stage 2 allows the cylinder to rotate...

    I have picked up a couple of used revolvers this month. My first purchase was a surplus S&W 64-5 38 special in stainless. It is dinged and scratched but the lockup and timing is like new. Then my Gun shop friend made the mistake of accidently texting me late night last Thursday he had a Taurus...

    Here's a bit of trivia I picked up recently while compiling a mini-history of Forjas Taurus. While everyone knows about Taurus's 1980 purchase of Indústria e Comércio Beretta S.A. in São Paulo, there is very little accurate knowledge about when Beretta opened its Brazilian facility. According...

    I just ran across this a few minutes ago and am hoping one of the attendees of Shot Show 2018 will post video of it in the next few days. So many great firearms have been released recently by many companies but this is one of the few that has my attention. Taurus 692 Multi-Caliber Revolver...

    I was wondering if it's possible to take model 85 parts on model 82 including the barrel because they sell all the parts of the model 85 on eBay for 100 it's a little cheaper than buying a gun

    Looking for ammo suggestions (self defense and target ammo) for my 9mm revolver. Target steel cased ammo (115 grain) does not work, it must be expanding in the cylinder so that it is extremely difficult to eject the spent cases. Has anyone experienced this behavior ? What brands of ammo works...

    Hello Guys, I have a stainless .38 model 85 SS2 with a 2" barrel that I have owned since 2000 - received it as a gift from my father. I have probably only fired it 50 or so times, all with target .38 special ammunition. Looking up the SERNO, I discovered that it was made in March of 1990 (!) -...
