    You know, I've never been able to find out whether the modern '73 in .357 is actually rated for full snot magnum loads, or whether it is meant for black powder kaboy stuff.

    It's not exactly a strong action, or at least not one that would seem to have a long term resistance to being beaten loose by high pressure loads.

    And yet with enough ambulance lawyers and dumb bubbas out there who would stuff anything into anything with the same numbers, warnings or not, it would be hard to believe that the guns wouldn't be safe...

    So I'm betting safe, but will shoot themselves to pieces slowly.

    Rambling aside, I'd go for a Model 92 instead, if you want a pistol calibre thumper. I'm not sure that anything short of a deliberate act of malicious stupidity would blow one of those up.

    I was actually planning on getting that one. But Ellwood Epps sold them all before my pal came in.



    Can't find anyone selling them now.

    Might be between imports. Wolverine can import stuff from Taylor's and Cimarron, Rossi makes a decent '92 clone. There are Chiappa ones out there, but that's not a brand I trust much.
