Could NOT Pass Up a Magnum Speed Six

my first carry piece when I owned a dancehall back in the '80's

ran across a nice one for not much money, so I had to snag it

built like a tank

very well balanced

smooth action and accurate

.357 barks like a big dog

Stainless Speed Six .357 with 2.75" barrel is one of the guns I am always on the lookout to buy.

Great snag!

Congrats on the find ! Buddy of mine had one of those years back. It was a nice gun in a handy sized package. Very good for carry and for shooting.

I watched a pretty good Youtube vid last night, so I disassembled it, cleaned it, took a felt pad, Flitz and a Dremel to the sear, lubed it and put it back together.

Best thing?

No parts left over, and it still shoots!
