HS Double 9's

I've owned them and have a Double Nine Longhorn with the 9 1/2" that was given to me as a junker parts gun. It only fires every time if fired single action, the DA only works part time. I'm not gunsmith enough to fix the DA, with that long barrel it shoots 22LR like a rifle, but the 22mag cylinder must not line up properly because it hits all over the place like a shotgun.
The earlier made guns were in my estimation very good guns, but as with everything it seems as though time has not been gentle with them as a company!
I'd love to have another of the little 2" 22lr I had years ago, but the prices now are out of my reach.

Taurus

I'm not a great fan of Taurus, but looked up their model 942, according to their catalog it could be had as a convertible, unless I'm miss reading it. Anyway all I found were the either or type, buy the 22 or the 22mag, not both cylinders. I didn't check to see if you can special order both cylinders. In the DA revolvers you had to have a separate crane as well as the other cylinder, unlike single actions that just swapped the cylinder

That model, in particular 1st Generation, would be my 1st choice. Long discontinued and a bit rare but worth keeping an eye out for. Came in several barrel lengths so you have options.



Mine is the standard long rifle model.

What length barrel are you looking for? 22 wmr loses a lot and are very loud in shorter barrels. Very good video link below.

If you don't feel you can afford a Smith, give Taurus a try.

Interesting info in the video-with the gold dot ammo I didn't see significant loss of velocity between the 4" pistol and snub, energy should be similarly reduced.

This former cop only carries a snub 9mm the Mrs. through her own choice also only carries a snub but she will alternate between a 9/.357 and wmr and I am confident she is well protected with any of the calibers .

Or get a 648, and a 617,,
then add combat grips to both,,

Buy once,, cry three times,,
(The combat grips cost almost as many tears as the gun purchase,, )

BUT, end up with UNLIMITED smiles!!

That's the approach I took a couple of months back when I got a new Model 48.

Pricey? Yes, indeed.

But it's a really nice revolver and we all know the quality is top notch. I won't be thinking, "What if?"

Just recently picked up this little revolver not my 1st choice ,but my wife was gravitated towards it and likes to shoot it so who am I to complain .It's very lightweight and extremely well made. I would have thought it was from the custom shop ,but it's not .The S&P Air Lite PD nice.
