Kinda like this one? I agree, they are are great, uncle just found an old british WW2 one in a house he was working on hidden in the atic.

lol I like the poly frime...



A break top revolver with a polymer frame (first polymer revolver?) chambered in 357 magnum. This was on display at IWA - Nurnberg Germany’s International Trade Fair for Hunting and Shooting Arms. This gun is built by Russia's Baikal. Unfortunately there seems to be little more infomration about this interesting revolver just yet.

The last thing I think wheelguns need is a polymer frame. I heard of this gun, but like many Baikal pistols.....we never see them stateside.

1. it's unamurcan.
2. a split frame doesn't handle the load as well.
3. wheel guns suck :)

!. The S&W schofield invented the hinged frame and S&W, Iver Johnson, Hopkins and Allen, and Harrington and Richardson all made them.....in America.

2. Back in the day when steel sucked.....this was the case, but not with modern steels. A 38 special, 44 special,45LC, 32 Mag, and even a 357 would fire fine in them.

3. Wheel guns fire stronger ammo than autos....define that as sucky. Plus they tend to be more reliable, more accurate than alot of autos, andare just fucking classy.

Adlers got you there. Those are some damn good points. I love wheel guns and they definatly don't suck and is why their still around and have had so few changes to them over the years

sarcastic? who?

i'm just not a fan. the next pistol i'll own is the 54r no. 4 enfield idear i keep toying with.

too bad i can't find a complete action anywhere, let alone a crap barreled action for under $100.

I'm sure that a huge reason we may not see hinged revolvers being reintroduced stateside, in spite of more advanced metals, has to do with liability.

As much fun as they are (I grew-up shooting a couple of them), there's no denying the design is much weaker than conventional side-loading revolvers.

They used to say that the SAA wouldnt hold heavy cartridges but they still use the basic design for 44mags. I think it just needs to be updated like the SAA.
