Got lucky on another GunBroker auction.  Never expected my $300 bid would win it!  Somebody's "sock drawer" gun, bore mint, zero end shake, cylinder gap pass 0.004/ hold 0.005", cylinder throats .362", range report will follow.

Ed, maybe you should consider buying some lottery tickets, your luck seems to be very good lately!

I think a lot of guys when they figure out 38 S&W is not 38 Special, decide they don't want the gat.  I like it when they think like that, more such for the rest of us who appreciate them!

Nice.  Almost certain I was watching that one and a number of others.  But really trying to get a Colt in 32-20 first.  And maybe a Colt in 32 S&W Long.  Or Smith.  Then going to try to pick up a cpl Colts or Smiths like this in 38 SPC.

That is a very fine deal, and a great looking revolver. Good shooting to you.
