Our Assessment: This revolver is a cute little kit gun, and except for the cylinder, you have to look very hard to see any other handling marks on the gun. Unlike some of the cheaper imported revolvers, this has an all steel frame and cylinder, and an action that allows a decent trigger pull. The cylinder pin is pulled forward to allow the cylinder to swing out. This revolver is perfect for taking along on those backpacking trips for a little informal plinking.
