I was just gonna say....

...That a single reason for selling this revolver would be Hawg's. I think I am not putting words in his mouth when I say that if period correct revolvers are important then the ROA doesn't really make it. It is only period correct for the years beginning sometime around the middle of the 20th century.

I like them because of the quality. I had an opportunity to buy my fourth ROA at a gunshow two weeks ago for four hundred bucks. I am still kicking myself for letting it go.

When you have the opportunnity to compare the performance of the Remington to the ROA, you will see that the ROA is really a well engineered shooting tool.

That quality engineering does not extend to the design of the loading lever. I can't for the life of me understand the rational for designing the revolver such that it takes three hands to put it together in the field. My only criticism.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government. Thomas Jefferson
