I did it again.  ;D
Taurus 66. .357 Mag. 7 shot cylinder. Appears to have been made in 2002. It is Taurus' version of the S&W 686 plus at about half the price.

Lettow,

Yes, it may fully seat a crimped bullet, like my 2001 44Colt OP, but will it fully seat a sized 44 spec empty casing?  My 44 Colt marked OP would not fully seat the empty 44 spec casing therefore it was not safe to fire 44 Spec's.  It was specific for 44 Colt and 44Rus, only.

I hope that is not true with these newer American models because I want a 44 spec but will mainly shoot 44Rus.  But want, the full compliment of 44's to work through it, if I like.


i can't locate my new 44 special brass right now but found 6 fired cases of different manufacture.  They fit the chambers fine.  Also, I checked the cylinder length and it's 1.556".

I should also offer this extended tidbit, When...
 I gave the above H&R 999 to my Dad that Christmas 1971.
 He then insisted that I receive his S&W “Hand Ejector”, he wanted me to have it.
This is the side arm he had on board the "Lenape" his 34' cabin cruiser.
 He volunteered for service in the US Coast Guard along with the Boat and was accepted, just after Pearl Harbor.
During early months of World War II, he became temporary member of the Coast Guard Reserve. These temporary members brought their boats which would be used for safety patrols. Coast Guard Headquarters allowed some of those boats to be equipped with machine guns and they could carry pistols and rifles on patrols. (an enlisted CG man was assigned to go along armed with 1911 & 03)

It's another priceless piece to me   :) Made in 1926

I was about 10 years old when I first got to shoot this one as I recall. I remember the recoil as "WOW".
big stuff, big caliber when compared to the 22 LR I had shot before...

      Greetings, All!

   Honestly, I'd be delighted if they'd just offer to chamber it for the .44S&W 'Russian'; it should be more accurate than having a "mongrel chamber" designed to shoot cartridges that this revolver was never designed to shoot.
   Think about it: An Old Model #3 chambered for the .44S&W 'Russian' ( I believe collectors called them "Old Old Model Russians" ), an original configuration. Now, as an OPTION, I think that would be wonderful!

                           M.T.M.
                         2-18-24

I totally agree with you.  But it was stated 3 years back, I believe, here in this thread, that that would not be available.  A true 1st Model Russian would be very nice to have and in my mind that is sort of what we are getting in the 44 Chambers.  But my comments above and on the previous page was a WARNing.

I am concerned that a person would put a 44Spec into a 44Colt cut chamber and then over-pressure-it, to BLOW-up.

That all.

The overall question is --- Why does Uberti have two different barrel markings for the 44? And also   Why is Lettow's cylinder marked 44 Colt?  Just does not make sense and we have too few sample guns to come up with an explanation.

Here is another in my collection, it's not at all new to me I actually bought it in 1971.
A Model 999 Harrington & Richardson Sportsman, I purchased for my Dad.

Here is the back story. my Dad had one of these H&R's which was made before the War. (the model 999 was introduced in 1932)
I remembered it well as the gun I learned to shoot when I was about 7 or 8. circa 1957-58.
However, in 1963 my Grandfather passed, My Dad relied on a Lawyer friend of the family to administer
the will. The Lawyer did indeed get his fee, but my Dad gave that H&R to him as a personal "thanks".
Years passed...
So, it was 1971 and Christmas time, I had turned 21 earlier that year.
I had seen this H&R Model 999 is the Sporting goods Dept. at the Miami * K-Mart.
BINGO, I felt it was the perfect gift for my Dad, and so it was.
 He enjoyed it and we when shooting 22's on several occasions.
It returned to my possession when I lost my Dad in 1986. It is one of 4 guns that were my Dads that are priceless to me. The original pre-war H&R was defiantly what instilled my passion of Firearms.

 
* Kmart, which had 2,100 stores all over the nation, has not sold handguns since the 1970s.
 As of Jan 2024, only two locations remained in the continental United States, one in that very same Miami, Florida store I bought the new H&R and a Westwood, New Jersey location.
 The number was reduced to two mainland U.S. stores when a Birmingham, NY location closed in late 2023.
