Colt quit making DA revolvers, Smith quit making the snub nosed 460, BMW the e30... I'd love to buy a new detective special but they've been long discontinued. The Colt Magnum Carry was basically a modern 357 capable dick special but alas, very limited production... Python...
    From what I've gathered Colt's DA revolvers would be prohibitively expensive to produce them with the same quality and attention to detail. Internet conjecture though...

      ^Yeah, I've seen that... It just seems like Colt has lost touch with the gunbuying public. With the recent article in BusinessWeek about Colt not making money and going into bankruptcy again, I'd think that they would really interested in what the buyers want. Its more than just AR15s, 1911s and a few SAAs... I've heard that Smith's J frame is the biggest seller for them, and that Ruger has done really well with the LCR, hell, my mom just bought one. (nice little gun) I think a modern detective special would be a hot seller.

            Colt tried to all but abandon the Commercial Civilian market in the 80's and 90's to focus more on Law enforcement and military sales. This has left a very very bad taste in the mouths of the gun buying public. IMO colt has ALWAYS been over priced and over rated in my life time and coupled with that move away from the public to the govt will likely always leave a tainted opinion of them in my mind to go else where for my firearm needs. I am not the only one either. S&W tried this as well though not to as great of an extent, and they have now gone back the other way, and back to making shit consumers actually might want or need for a mostly reasonable price point

              That and the fiasco about smart guns in the late 90s/early 2ks and the public boycotted them!

              Their loss of the m16(or M4? Can't remember) contract to FNH sure doesn't help their bottom line...

                So I just bought a Gen 4 Glock 23 in OD Green to replace the Gen 4 Glock 19.

                A few pages back I mentioned shooting both guns side by side and being significantly more accurate with the .40S&W Glock 23 than the 9mm Glock 19.

                Photo for reference:



                Now to decide if I want to keep the Glock 19 or just sell it.

                All Gen 4 Glocks will be pulled from the California Roster at the end of this year and will no longer be legally sold in CA (from what I've read). There is a craze for all Gen 4 Glocks right now, so selling will be easy considering I've had the Glock 19 less than a month now. But I can't help but wonder if keeping it would be the better option.

                I bought the Glock 23 for future CCW as well.

                  Rarely is selling a gun like this a good deal.

                    My 300BLK build has begun!

                    My Noveske 8.2" barrel arrived this week. Have 1 thousand brass and projectiles on the way as well! Just need to snag some dies now

                      Sell me on the Walther PPS for ccw.

                      Because I'm already sold. I want one so bad.


                      EDIT: Nevermind, I bought the PPS in .40 anyways.

                      I think I'm going to stop buying handguns for at least a month.

                          I'm planning on picking up a surplus hi power once I'm done with holiday shopping. I also want a ridiculous handgun again. I was thinking something in .460 or .50ae. I miss the 44 mag I got rid of a couple years back.

                            460 smith or Ruger Alaskan in 454 Casull

                            For pure ridiculous get the backpackers canon a 3 1/2" smith 460 out of the performance shop with no compensator or the Alaskan (also available in 44mag)

                            With the 460 you have some more cost effective more readily available cartridges at your disposal. Namely the 45 Long Colt, in and loading you want form the uber hot and heavy custom loads to Buffalo Bore +P+ heavy game rounds, to off the shelf light cowboy action 3 gun loads. Or you have .454 Casull in any loading you want, since the S&W 460 is a 45 cal in a very large casing. Obviously this goes for the Alaskan as well just not exceeding the max pressure specs on the Casull or using the 460 cartridge lol

                                It will go on my SBR lower I have already until i get it's lower approved. I don't like the idea of keeping it on the same lower as the 556 gun
