They claimed they stood by their statements -- whereupon the manufacturer produced photographs of the SAME pistol (same serial number) being tested by another publication, for which publication it exhibited none of the problems allegedly uncovered by Gun Tests.
It is unpossible, I suppose, that the manufacturer managed to buy that self same gun on the open market ( who would keep a gn they found to be craptastic?) ......... and took it to another gunrag that would
shill for them?
I lost faith in the gunrags after the Taurus Judge was awarded "Handgun of Teh Year" awhile back.... I then understood the power of Marketing and Ad Budgets. I now believe only what my own lying eyes tell me and what is confirmed by testing... done by me.
