First topic message reminder :

Hi!

So.....I've gotten recruited to shoot for a summer police revolver league.....affraid

That said, I would also eventually like to shoot Distinguished Revolver, and have heard tell that many folks like the S&W Model 14. Not knowing much about revolver models, it seems like there are several types of Model 14. 

Can anyone recommend a specific one? New or used? If used, how can one tell if it's in good condition? Price range?


Thanks!

Val

They are pricey but very nice.  This excellent example was purchased about 6 years ago, I think for under $500 shipped.  I might take $1600 for it...

Think of it this way. You will never be able to shoot a bullet in a revolver that touches the rifling's. There is a forcing cone and cylinder gap to consider. Since even the longest bullet you can load in a .357 and still turn the cylinder is 3/8" (aprox) from the rifling's the extra 1/8" from a 38 Special case is lost in the equation. Surprisingly enough the most accurate lead bullet in my 27-2 is 148gr WC (my model 52 load) They are not legal for DR but prove the shorter case is not a problem.

That makes sense.

I am just getting interested in trying DR and was looking at a nice 14-4 on GunBroker. It has a Bo-Mar full length target rib on top, would that be legal for the competition?

No.  It has to be “as it left the factory” with few and limited exceptions.

OK, that's what I was thinking, but wanted to be sure.

Thank you!
