Our Assessment: Bison is the brand name of the pistols that were imported by Jana International in the early 70's. These were less expensive, Single Action Revolvers, a lot cheaper than the Colts and the Rugers, but just as fun to shoot. The actions work pretty well and the ammo is cheap. This could be that important first gun for the grandchildren, or just another plinker / hunting camp gun for you.
