My hand hurts just looking at it.
Looks like a great revolver.
Before 1997 I used to have two Dan Wesson's - a .357Maximum & .445 Supermag....nice guns with stacks of power & great for long range revolver shooting. Friends enjoyed .454 Cassul and centre Contenders...those days are gone due to the law change in 1997 & our pistols & revolvers were handed in.
Banning our handguns following media and public outcry after two big shooting incidents in the UK didn't stop this kind of thing happening. It's happened since with clowns using rifles and other weapons.
Nuts really, but that's our politicians and media for you. If one owns firearms here...we're on the 'dark' side!

I did find it mildly ironic that, whilst working in an off licence as a student in 2001 (post handgun ban), the robbers who held the store up on Sunday night while I was working alone had a handgun.
Clearly the ban worked a treat!
lol loved my 4" Horton 44mag but the DE 50 was my play toy and 38 super and 9x25 uspsa /ukpsa was my passion yeh up 40% that ban really worked lost my trade and sport in one draconian law
Sadly the only handgun I got to own was a Gat gun. Very versatile though. It would fire pellets, those darts with flights on the back and corks. It was unerring in it's accuracy. Without fail, every single time, it would be guaranteed to never hit the same place twice however close you were to it.
Me too, 6"686 and a .45 1911 modified and a Beretta mod 76 .22, still miss them all.
I, like many others I suspect still have my Gat. Take it out in the garden occasionally and shoot at things. Like Pedro said it never hits anything you aim at but it does take you back.
I also many years ago had a Colt 45 automatic I've no idea what model and a Star 22 pistol, I seem to remember that was a nice little auto.
