Default Looking for a good revolver

Thinking I want a revolver next. What's a good quality revolver that won't break the bank? The main use will be car carry. And lastly does anyone here have one they want to let go of?

Are we talking about a $300 bank, a $600 bank, or a $1,000 bank?

I'd like $300, I'd live with $600 maybe, but I don't want to get near $1k

I haven't seen any good revolvers under $600.00.


And I'm not laughing at you, but I'm lol at a $300.00 revolver pistol, those days are long gone. Unless a Charter, EAA or Rock Island are worth betting your life on them...

My own preferred car carry revolver is a S&W 686 with a 2 1/2” barrel, have had it for years.

I have an older S&W 66-3 with a 4" barrel. "K" frame Stainless Steel around that price range. Might be too much barrel to EDC.

I own...
GP100 which is the best buy overall
S&W 686 which is revolver perfection IMO
Rossi .38 special 5 shot if you want a cheap conceal weapon

If itís staying in the glove box, get one of the first two. The Ruger is a great choice.

Ruger LCR in .357 Magnum. Small enough it can maneuver easily in the confines of a car (as opposed to a full size revolver like a GP100) but could also be a back up gun. Plus it's a potent enough caliber and a great out of the box trigger.

I love my Ruger P95 so I'll maybe give the LCR a try.
Might try and find one used.
A revolver and a AR style rifle will pretty much finish out my small gun collection. I'd like to do some pig hunting someday and an AR seems suited for that. And I want a rediculusly reliable pistol and a revolver fits that bill.

I really like my ultra lite. And for a gun under 400 itís. Great carry gun. And people can say what they want about Taurus but they hold a life time warranty and Iíve had zero problems with this gun.

I was lucky to find a barely used one for $390 from a firemen. I'd love to pick up another one in 9mm and maybe even in .22 LR.

I've got a ported barrel Model 85 that I love. I've never had a problem with it although I rarely shoot it now after getting the LCR. I'd like to find a good deal on a .44 Magnum Tracker.

Craig, the Ultralight is titanium right? How's the recoil on it? It's just a .38 Special right?

No itís aluminum and itís .38+p. And it weighs next to nothing so itís got a fairly good recoil. But I use it as a carry gun so if Iím having to do work Iím not worried about the recoil as much as my target.
