Korth Video

I can't understand a single word, but that doesn't matter. The video says it all at Korth's website: http://www.kortharms.com/

That's an interesting half of a video. The entire first minute has absolutely nothing memorable whatsoever. Interesting just the same.

I sure wish I'd run across a Korth at a gun show or gun store one day. Perhaps I'm not looking hard enough?!

I'll bite what is sticking out next to the hammer? It looks to be a Remington 700 style safety

You're not looking in the right places is more like it.

You won't find a Korth at a typical show or store in the same way that you won't find a used Panterra on a dealer's lot just sitting there waiting for someone to come along and haggle over the price.

They generally are sold via auction house or via a very closed circle of exclusive collectors.

One of the OGCA (Ohio Gun Collectors Association) shows might offer you the best bet of actually seeing one.

Perhaps you don't know my typical travels...
I've missed only one OGCA at the Roberts Center in the last 1.5 years.

It's more likely that I've overlooked one. Maybe you simply hope you've seen them at OGCA.

The button doesn't show up in Mozilla Firefox. It does in IExplorer. I'm not sure the words add much to the video anyway.

Weird. I went back and triple checked. Still not showing. I'm running version 26.0 on Win 7.

Kind of reminds me of a Colt Python?

Well...excuse me all to hell....

Your correct though. I don't know all your travels nor do I give a flying one through a rolling one what they are.

I'll know better now though & in the future I won't bother trying to help a fellow buckeye out....

Nope - not me...
I don't go to nor am I ever likely to go to an exclusive event like an OGCA show.
I'm just down to earth regular people, not part of the exclusive "members and guests of members" crowd.

I would be too afraid of scratching it to use it.

Very cool video. I liked the Jedi mind power re assembly procedure. Looks like a very well made expensive firearm that I would feel guilty using.

So.. since I wasn't familiar with Korth I went to look them up and find out some info.
It turns out I can stop worrying about it now.
The Classic 45 is only $30,000

So keep going. I have been to just about every every OGCA show in the last ten years. Have I seen a Korth there? Probably. Super high-end revolvers aren't my thing so if I did, I don't recall.

I love the Korth Combat revolver. They are a true work of art.













Korth also made an Autopistol, though less than 300 exist and they bring some very high prices..

They surely are. And if those two beautiful specimens are yours, I green with envy.

Does Korth make a revolver similar to the above with a half lug?

Thanks, yes those are both mine...

To answer your question, I'm not sure I ever saw a Korth Combat with a half lug. The older Korth revolvers had no barrel shroud at all.

They did. Some of the older guns, after the first ones with an exposed ejector rod, had a half-lug as shown below:



I don't think the Combat models ever did, though.

Most of their 22s also have half-lugs.

They truly are stunning works of art, and superb performers at the range to boot.

What system does the 9mm autoloader use for barrel lock/unlock?
