I'm sure there are writers that occassionally write an unfavorable review of a new firearm. However we never (seldom) see them in print because that publication needs the advertising revenue from the manufacture.
Six months or so back I was comparing new conversion prices and at the time Traditions were the best. An 1851 Navy in .44 Colt had a dealer cost of $225. Now since all of my single actions *have* to be in pairs that translated to (in my case) $550. Not too bad for a brace of cowboy guns. For comparison dealer cost for a Ruger Vaquero at the same time was $279.
We live in a time in which attitudes and deeds once respected as courageous and honorable are now scorned as being antiquated and subversive.
