Default My new Hand Cannon

I got this about a month ago. I opened it up and removed the flag, lock, and the other piece of the lock, and put my brushed stainless steel plug in. It looks much better now...

Looks fine, was wondering if the title to the thread was from someone who didn't realize that .44 Mags were no longer the king of the hill. Yours is a real hand cannon, I have one like it as well. Don

Certainly a hand-full. Those impact absorber hogues make a world of difference.
