Well, $9,900 + 100 shipping. I guess it's rare and all, but when it comes down to it, it's just metal and wood.

Everything i've heard about the korth,which isn't much is they are well made and accurate.What i have a problem with is "tool steel like no other"-"glass hard finish".I suppose if they don't tell you what kind of steel how can you disagree?

yikes what a rip off!:coco:

And how about the grips.........don't match the gun and don't even have an adjustable palm rest.

Is this a joke?

Well, looking on gunbroker.com, you can get a really nice S&W K-22 Masterpiece for <$600. My own S&W model 35 .22/32 target is about a grand, if you can find one. $10K for a handgun? Not in my lifetime.

Yeah, that is high for a fixer - upper.

It would really be hard to drill and tap that special tool steel for a red dot and it would take hours to sand enough off the grips to get it in a holster. I'll just keep looking. Also, did you notice that all the blue is already worn off the muzzle?

...well, good people, I know where there is another Korth revolver. I cannot remember the caliber, but the shop is not asking nearly that much money for it. The owner & manager of the store tell me that most all of their customers have never heard of Korth. They were surprised that I exclaimed "Oh! A Korth!"!!!

IIRC, Korths are completely hand-made. And when you consider that a hand-made double rifle can easily cost more than a house (or 2), it doesn't sound so shocking. doesn't mean I can afford one either but.....

Just metal and wood. And a diamond is just a chunk of carbon.

It's all in the execution.

Something hand made used to mean extra attention to detail and quality, but hand made things always vary from unit to unit. These days, I'd opt for a good design made with quality materials and the precision and consistency of CNC.

That sort of looks like my Dan Wesson that I paid $350.00 for, but the grips are uglier.

I looked at a Korth 38 once at Gander Mountain. They wanted $999.00 for it. I figured that meant that anyone else would want, maybe $650.00....$700.00 for it. It looked like an ugly version of a model 10.

I passed.

Come on now folks - aren't we being a little harsh. They did say it was accurate and it even comes with an allen wrench. Your going to have to modify the grips anyway to fit your hand - so you can always find another grip. I wonder if it has a 22 mag cylinder with it. Probably an extra $300.
I guess I'll just stick with my Single Six Convertible until my 401K rebounds.
