I just picked up my 357/38 Ranch Hand today. Its been a LONG wait!!! This thing is way cooler than i even thought it would be. Made very well and easy to hold in one hand. I also got to Fondle my Smith bodyguard 380. I have to wait for 20 more days before i can Dros the bodyguard
Thanks PRK, your the bomb!!!

I never would have been able to get these guns without PRK

I had a Marlin 1874. Wish I'd kept it & made it into a "Ranch Hand"!

can't be done legally in CA. It would be an SBR.

Sorry, Marlin's 1st lever action was, um, like, uh, 1881-ish?
:o
LOL kidding; I'm sure you typed that but meant 1894

thanks everyone. I started wanting this gun last summer when rossi announced it. But after talking to the Ca doj(they said no way) i thought it was a pipe dream until i got on this sight and found out about PRK and other 07ffl dealers with a manufacturers license.They can legally sell single shot conversions and them put it back to stock after the sell. Which is why i could buy a non roster smith bodyguard 380 also. Unfortunately these are few and far between and no dealers across the country have them for very long. Gunbroker is getting a premium for them. I bought this one from Texas. The other problem is getting someone to ship to calif since they aren't on the roster.
I had it shipped to PRK and they dros'ed it for me.I probably paid a bit too much but i wanted one and was unsure if rossi will lose their lawsuit and these wont be available again. It was 500 shipped and another 100 to have it dros'ed as a single shot,plus 25 dros fee. If you want a non roster hand gun in calif it will cost you more than anywhere else in the country. Calif sucks for gun laws!!!!!

Id pay that much for one. I dont think you gave up too much for it. That thing is rad, how many rounds does it hold?

That looks like Lucas McCain's rifle.

Anyone here old enough to remember him?

Maybe not for calif, but if you live in any other state they are cheaper to buy because they dont have to be modified to get around our communist laws
Its holds 6 rounds. It will be interesting to shoot some buffalo bore 357 at 2200FPS out of her

Slightly different, but I agree on the general principle of what you're sayin' ;)

OP, grats on a fun looking gun. RANGE REPORT NAO!

Is that considered a pistol? Kind of reminds me of Arnolds Shotgun in Terminator or Woody Harrelsons "Mares Leg" in Zombieland

I'm jealous. Great buy and have fun with it. If you ever sell it can you sell it as is or does it have to be converted back to single shot first?

Its sold as a handgun, box says handgun otherwise it would be a SBR and the BATF would be all over anyone that buys one and the manufacturer. No it doesn't ever have to be converted back
Wonder what they will say when i put in on my CCW LOL " you better wear a trenchcoat" P
