My thoughts are , it`s THE most ROBUST production 357 mag on the market today!
It`s built to shoot 357magnum all day every day !!!!
& it`s priced very competitively to boot , maybe not as refined as some , but can be massaged into a very smooth pullin revolver !!!
It`s built & supported rite here in the good ole USofA !!!!!
I`m not biased , I like all Rugers !!
