In a dream I would have a North American Arms 22 in my pocket, that when I pulled it out, it turned into a Colt New Service 45 Colt with 8" barrel.

Well my dream gun is on order and should be here sometime in September. It is a S&W .460 Magnum with a 5" barrel.

I wish I had never sold mine, but that was 25 years ago.

Jim

Now I am not a revolver person but I am waiting on a Tracker 4 inch 357 so I just have to use this.



I'm just not that found of the longer barrels.

I hesitate to post this, because it just quite simply is not my dream revolver, however, it almost fits the thread.

It's an interesting revolver, there have never been any before or since just like it, it's a neat idea, it does actually exist (I think?!) and the fun factor is very high. Problem is, they are absolutely, ridiculously scarce. I have never seen one in the flesh and it's very rare that someone even mentions them, and the folks who know nothing of them simply write 'em off as "silly, junk or pointless..."

It's the Taurus Raging Thirty, the only double-action .30 Carbine chambered revolver ever commercially offered. (NOTE: the SCSW mentions some extremely rare prototype Smith & Wesson chambered in .30 Carb that was never actually offered and may no longer physically exist...)

Have you ever heard of the Taurus Raging Thirty?
Have you ever seen one?!

I'd buy one if I saw it and I could deal with the price tag.

Well excluding a Jans, I wouldn't mind if Ruger would take the Super Redhawk Alaskan in .454 casull, and extend the barrel to 4.5" or 5.0", but with a full underlug the entire length - no standard goofy-looking SRH reduction in barrel size. I would even take 4.0".

That ain't a half bad l'il plan, either, Wyosmith.

Upgraded Charter Arms Bulldog...

in .45 Auto Rim, with shorten cylinder and barrel set to offset the cylinder gap.

Now That's a defensive revolver.

Why not complete the design and have the frame's cylinder window fit the cylinder length? Be kind of an odd looking little dude, eh?

Well, did a little rescearch and it looks ...

like a new frame will be needed as the .44Spl., maximum pressure is 14,000psi. While the .45ACP [which is the .45 Auto Rim, with a rim to headspace on] is 18,000 -20,000 psi.

The basic idea was to use present frame with the shorted cylinder and gain teh additional barrel length.

I share the feeling, but a 617 6" is a serious target gun. I expect that most "dream guns" would be relatively expensive and that we might actually dream that we could afford one.

Since .44 Special ballistics basically match .45 ACP ballistics, I'd just get the standard Bulldog.

I need one of these, except without the 22lb double action trigger pull
And higher sights, but I'd want to see about having some sort of holographic sight installed for S&G's

I saw a Walker Colt at the gun show. The guy had a letter with it. He said he had been offered $100k and did not take it.

I can't take a picture at Washington Arms Collectors events. I would have taken a pic of that guy and his revolver.

What kind of guy can afford that revolver and yet has the time to rent a table just to show it off? He must have been looking for a higher offer.

Uberti make a copy for $350.
If I had the Colt I could sell it an buy 300 Ubertis. Or buy one and pocket the difference.

$100K for an original Walker would be a bargain. There were only 1100 of them ever made, fewer still exist, partially because they had a bad habit of blowing up. They usually go for around $300K to $500K. The record so far was last October, $920K at the James Julia auction in Maine.

Good luck with that $350 Uberti replica, they start at $449. Dixie Gunworks price right now is $410.

I am collecting Korths made in Ratzeburg and did not even dare dreaming about finding a Korth Sport in the elusive .32 S&W Long when I was approached by an older gentleman I used to shoot with who is scaling back for health reasons.

I will pick the revolver up Monday or Tuesday and it will fit into the row and shine at the gun range.
