That is a hand cannon.

What kind of MV's are you getting with a 240gr hunting bullet?

TBH it does nowt for me.

Same goes for a lot of 'esoteric' firearms.
That doesn't mean I dislike them, or think they shouldn't exist.
I guess I'm too much of a traditionalist.

No recoil to speak of, so I wouldn't put it in the handcannon department. Very Happy

I don't remember, I'll have to look when I get back to the shop, but I do remember it was over 200 fps faster than the factory barrel...

DS, you have done it again mate...I’m drooling into my keyboard.

Since I gave pistol shooting away I have lost interest in pistols, but I can and do still recognise a beautiful firearm and the work that has gone into its creation.

With that long barrel length it should be a 300 metre ‘head puncher’ mate.

Another gem DS...well done.

now have I fired 5 shots or 6????? well do you feel lucky punk????
comes to mind.... guys love muzzle brakes with good reason (recoil reduction) but the noise would be horrendous for bystanders I would imagine..... wouldnt need to hit burgler as he would have bleeding ears from the concusion.....
yip I do like it very much,beautiful work as always Mate.

Thank you Vince, I always appreciate your compliments and kind words...


Elvis, the muzzle brake does not have the same ear shattering blast that a rifle has, and I find it that way for most revolvers...

wtf Bull barrel pistol.....love it !!!

Got a 9 1/2 inch Super Redhawk ..... Got a love/hate relationship with it !!!
From a rest I can hit a 6" target at 100 yards all day long...... no rest at 25 yards I'm lucky to keep the vertical under 12" inches. Mad
