I'm a retired watchmaker and gunsmith. I've been inside of them and I call 'em as I see 'em.
The quality of Philippine made pistols, especially automatics has gotten much better in the last 15 years or so, but they just aren't up to even Rossi and Taurus standards.
They can make good knock around and shooter guns, but I question the longevity.
Fair enough, and thank you for answering.
My winter EDC is a Rock CS, I've knocked it around for about 7 years now.
The revolver I just toss in my parka pocket when I have to button up while riding, hence the bobbed hammer.
