Zastava R44 King Kraguj .44 Magnum

Hi!

Does anyone know the Serbian Zastava R44 King Kraguj?

http://www.zastava-arms.co.yu/english/civilni.htm

Is it a good gun, is it worth buying it? I'd like to buy a .44 mag, and I'm looking for something no too expensive…

XXX
Jonas

K-frame 44mag with 5 shots? Ouch.

Never shot one, never seen one. Give us a range report if you get one, though. Always neat to hear about something other than a Colt/Smith/Ruger/Taurus.

+1 to that. Glad you can find these over there in Europe; I don't think that they're available in the USA, but I could be mistaken.

Ouch yes, but the Taurus tracker can be had in .44 mag, and it is their "compact" frame, which is K-ish sized or less.

Taurus' Tracker comes as either a 5-shot 44 or a 7-shot 357, right? That sounds like an L frame to me.

This website says the Zastava is a K-frame.

I am not sure if their "K-frame" really maps to the S&W K-frame, but at 1.08 kilos, it weighs about 38oz - not an N-frame for sure, but heavier than the scandium .44s Smith makes.
