Just picked it up a few days ago! I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I love how it feels in the hand - I'm normally not a fan of wooden grips on revolvers, but so far I like it.

Kind of odd they have all hex screws and then a flat head screw out of nowhere.

Looks great and from the reviews, you'll enjoy it at the range. Where did you acquire this piece?

That looks really cool. Like it came from a comic book. Please update with a range report. What's the trigger like?

The trigger is OK. In single action, the pull is very light (don't have my gauge on me at the moment), but slightly mushy... it doesn't feel like a typical single action revolver trigger. Double action is very smooth, but just a tad heavy for my taste. I certainly wouldn't say the trigger is bad, but it's not amazing either. We'll see how it feels after I put a number of rounds downrange

It indicates if the hammer is cocked. The hammer is internal; the "hammer" you can see from the outside is actually a cocking lever, and even if you cock the hammer, it returns to the forward position.

Thumbs up Pro quality photos

"Just picked it up a few days ago! I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I love how it feels in the hand - I'm normally not a fan of wooden grips on revolvers, but so far I like it. . . ."

Truly excellent photography.

But I am still having a hard time seeing the beauty of the firearm itself.

I guess the classic design is too deeply embedded in my mind as the norm.

They convert it to single-action only, either by removing a piece or installing a modified part (I'm honestly not sure), then you can convert it back after buying it. I suppose SAE would be a more appropriate term to use!

Nice looking revolver. Reminds me of the MaTeba revolvers.

How does it shoot?

Does it have the ability to fire .38 SPL or .38 SPL+P?

As weird and complex as their internals look, I still seem to want to get one. Good-looking guns and the low bore axis is quite desirable.

Default Not a fan of the looks or design

But, interested in how it shoots. I can forgive many things if it's a shooter.
Looking forward to you opinion after owning for a while.

Not mine but my friends. This is the .357 version and we were shooting it with 38 specials. Almost no recoil at all. Very soft shooting gun, little to no muzzle flip...nice.

Love the gold, bling factor is high!

It's a little of both but in person the sexiness definitely wins out.
Doesn't hurt that it's more than just a gimmick and really is a good shooter too.

Love it, but gold may be too gaudy for me. Looks like another handgun to add to the back of the line on that 1-in-30. Oh well.

Has anyone fired the 4, 5 and 6 inch versions and be able to comment on kick and recoil? I'm thinking the 50DS or 5 inch version.

I have a 40DS, the 4 inch barreled one.
It's my favorite revolver to shoot and the one I'm most accurate with.
I've put 1200 rounds of 38spl +p through it without a hiccup.
I've got revolvers that are considered "nicer" than this (eg pythons), but this is the one I like the best.
I'll be keeping it and looking for a two inch snubbie
