Welcome mate”whatever floats your boat “This may be like holding lit Dynamite. Smith 38's got me into the revolver scene in a serious way. I also like rugers nowadays but stay away from the snake guns cause I'm not rich enough to get bitten. But seriously I think old Smiths are some of the best gun keeper's fare on the planet. Now I've only had 6 38s from a 1880s 38 to 1906 38spl to '68 10 and the rest 64 pre locks. And a maybe 1915 what seems to have been a .455? (Got a new 65 on the way) all superb. I mean really, the action on these guns are quite remarkable. The cheapest outshines my match champion Ruger. I have to assume the super Redhawk has had some internal work but it just matches the Smith's. Onto the Astra. Bought the first 6"blued 357 at Cabela's a couple years ago for $225 and was dumfounded. Bought it for my brother but gave him my trusty m64 bag gun instead (which wasn't easy). My next was an inox 6" 44 mag($500 private sale). These guns have a remarkable finish, pinned and recessed, the tightest lockup I've ever, and incredibly smooth actions. I bought a blued Terminator 44 mag today ($330 at Cabela's). Maybe the higher dollar s&w revolvers have more to offer? but those astras are sure something and a helluva value in my opinion. I've never seen a revolver lock so tight with hammer cocked, and I mean any revolver. But there are plenty with more experience than i. Wondering if anyone shared my opinion.
