That’s a beautiful 27, make it a 4” for around $1500.00 and I’d be all over it. Oh, and if someone handed me a MR73 I’d love to shoot it and see what it’s all about.
Go 3.5". They're the coolest looking and generally the most sought after.

Like this Pre-27 from 1950












...or even cooler yet, this Registered Magnum from 1938.

Pretty 27. I have almost the same gun but not nearly as handsome, it's an early 28. I have to say it's my hands down favorite revolver.

Dumb question, is there not US made equivalent or better to that French revolver?

Tony

Maybe Freedom Arms, but they're SA and just so different in every way.

Roger that, but I’d bet $1500.00 won’t get you to part with that beauty.

I had a French Manurhin PPK .22 that was really nice. But that is an auto.

I had was a Dan Wesson Masterpiece .22. On target and beautiful.

I have had a long and very good education and am enjoying the fruits thereof in the form of the best guns for the job. Very few people can shoot above 95% and for them it is about prestige. For me it is about quality and performance.

Once again; Suum cuique.
