Default Arcus Revolvers

Anyone own or know anything about the Arcus line of revolvers? I know their version of the High Power is excellant. Just wondering about the revolvers.

Still waiting for the one person who knows something about Arcus Revolvers. Better if there is more than one. These are presently being manufactured. A 9mm is also available in both 9x19 and 9x21.

I’ve never even see one for sale. Are they being imported into the United States? Do you know if they headspace and extract rimless cartridges without moon clips?

I looked on gunbroker and didn’t see any for sale.

Don't know if they are in the states or not. They do have a website. What is on the website is the extent of my knowledge.

Looks to me like they were never imported. In 2003 they were supposed to start using Century Arms International to import them, starting in summer of 2004.

As of another thread in 2008, they had not been imported by then. It looks like they never got imported at all.

Someone on another thread in 2005 suggested that it is probably a Bulgarian version of the Russian OTs-01 Kobalt revolver, which is not a particularly great gun.

That's about all I can find. Arcus's website is awful, but you could probably send them an email and find out rather quickly whether they were ever imported into the US. So if you are really interested, that's probably the best thing you can do.
