If you’re a single action fan and have the funds, ya might want to snap that up. It’s not going to go down in value. Especially once all semi-auto’s become federal criminals under the new administration...May not seem odd or interesting to most, but this in .357 mag is the one that really trips my trigger. Just never found the funds and reason to justify buying it lining up at the same time....$600 price tag would be slightly used in the classifieds by a guy who needs to make rent

that is indeed an fascinating firearm, and beautiful to boot! However I don’t have proper storage for anymore long guns and not quite what I’m after at this point. Thank you.I would invite you to take a look see at the Navy Arms Yellow Boy I have posted here. Unique and out of the ordinary and one bodacious shooter. Slightly more than $600 but what the hey, with $1,400 on the way you got room to expand your horizions and it's only money you have already earned but haven't spent yet..
Those are in fact the interesting types of pistols I’m referring to the S&W especially so, their unique in that they have character that’s hard to define from your everyday run of the mill!It all depends on what you personally find interesting. My own tastes vary and change over time.
Two fairly recent acquisitions that I've made have cost me around $600 total. A couple years ago I was in Sportsman's Warehouse and saw a Cimarron Pistolero on the wall, for $399. I just happened to have $400 from something else I'd sold, and I'd never had an old-school single action, so I bought it. I love it! I've shot the heck out of it since then.
Last year I spotted a forlorn looking old large-frame S&W revolver in the display case at the LGS. The finish wasn't pretty and the grips were wrong, but it was only $225. It's a 1937 Brazilian contract .45 acp. I cleaned it up and made some wood grips for it. I shoot the heck out of it too, one of my favorites!
I know these old guns aren't much for some people, and 20 years ago I'd have looked down at them too, but my interests have changed and I really enjoy them now. $600 is a LOT of money for me to spend on a gun, so I tend to keep an eye open for the inexpensive jewels.
I love shooting snubbies!
This talk of hornets reminds me of an old joke. Sorry, I know it's completely off topic.I've always been interested in having a Hornet. That handgun out to be a zinger.
When they announced the second stimulating package I figured I just had to do something the new administration would disapprove of and maintain my status as a member of the Deplorables.Pre B CZ75
You pick that up from The Mosin Create? I found one at a local shop when I was selling a gun. 1988 stamped, no import marks. Guy wanted 340 because it had a scratch in the paint. Needless to say my i swooped it up, really nice cold war relic.When they announced the second stimulating package I figured I just had to do something the new administration would disapprove of and maintain my status as a member of the Deplorables.
And as my Sig 210-6 has been wanting a Swiss safe mate so I ordered this yesterday.

Now I'm pacing the floor in anticipation.
Once I have a chance to shoot it I'll decide if it gets "restored" with a Cerakote finish or keep it the way it is. Sub $600, If I don't refinish it.
Always wanted a Swiss pre B CZ75, I guess this will have to do as they didn't produce many with the CZ parts and CZ75 stamping before redesignating it an AT84 while still using the Czechoslovakian parts built in Switzerland.
