Recently there was a thread focusing on K & L frame revolvers. The N frame was something I didn't think I would be getting into but that all changed when I bought my 6" model 28-2. After that followed the JM 625 and then the 4" Model 28-2. I have been fortunate to have the 3 N frame revolvers in my collection.

N Frames are my favorite. Their recoil taming ability make them fun to shoot.......a lot. I load pretty mild loads for everything so that I can have fun without beating up the gun or myself. The Model 929 is the latest. The .44 Magnum and the .41 Magnum are sort of twins.

N-Frames have been dear to me ever since Skeeter Skelton convinced me of their attributes back in the 70's.

I'll flash a coupla interesting examples (in my opinion).

This model 25 .45acp went to Viet Nam with career Coast Guard EM when Uncle Sam deiced that the coast of VN needed him more than the Atlantic Coast of the U. S. did. standard.jpg


The "Chief" was very proud that he went but would not talk about his time in the "Brown Water Navy"
