Hey there, RevolverGuys and Gals! We had a little technical problem with the site for a few weeks, and missed a biweekly posting, but we’re back up and running, now. It was frustrating to be out of touch with our wonderful readers, so we’re glad to be back!
We’ll get back to our normal schedule tomorrow, and you’ll see the missed material make an appearance later on, so don’t worry—you haven’t missed a thing.
Thanks for your patience, and please be sure to thank Justin for all his hard work getting us back online. We’ll see you tomorrow morning!
Back in March of 2018, I wrote about my custom Fitz’ed Colt Official Police .38 Special here in these pages. Fellow RevolverGuys can tell from my story that I have more than just a passing interest in revolvers that have received the Fitz treatment. Continue reading “Colt 1917 .45 ACP Revolver – Fitz’ed!”
A few weeks back, I detailed some fixes and modifications I’d been working on for my set of Kimber K6S revolvers. One of these was the addition of a set of Hogue rubber Bantam grips for my three-inch stainless model. Continue reading “Hogue Bantam Grip Fix”
My attention was recently directed to an article that was ostensibly a review of a one-day revolver class at ITTS (which I had taken myself, back in 2019), but drifted into a conversation about revolver reliability. The author, who appears to be new to handguns and shooting, was rather shocked to see 5 of the 14 revolvers in the class (including their own) “had malfunctioned so irreparably that they were unusable” before they managed to get through even 200 rounds.

Ruger’s LCR is proven and deserves its place as one of the top choices in a snubby revolver. It has been well documented here at RevolverGuy, and comments on Mike’s articles confirm a large and loyal following. Continue reading “The .327 Federal Magnum Ruger LCR”
I encountered this dud round in the middle of a shooting competition at the range recently. Even though it’s from one of those bottom feeders—Eek!—it provides a good opportunity to make a few observations that are universal in nature, and not related to any particular weapon type.

We previously reported about firing pin failures in the excellent Kimber K6s revolver. This situation was troubling, because it represented a safety risk for the defensive user, and also risked hurting the reputation of this strong design.
We’ve continued to remain engaged with Kimber on this issue, and we’re exceptionally happy to report that the problem has been resolved. Continue reading “K6s Firing Pin Update”
Having previously discussed the development of the Smith & Wesson L-Frame revolvers at length, it seems appropriate to discuss the 1987 recall and modification of these otherwise excellent firearms, which resulted in the “M”-stamped models of the 581, 586, 681 and 686. Continue reading “The 1987 L-Frame Recall”
The NAA family of mini-revolvers is on of the most unique, niche firearms on the market. There is nothing else quite like these little SAA wheelguns anywhere. I have always been fascinated by these little revolvers but until recently had never even handled one. North American Arms was kind enough to send us their modernized, magnum version, the Pug. Continue reading “The NAA Pug Mini Revolver”
While the Continental Congress voted to declare independence from Britain on the Second of July, 1776, it took two days for them to complete and ratify the document that would declare it to the world. Continue reading “Happy Independence Day 2020”
