Default My new 66-8

Just got the new 66-8. If it shoots as good as it looks, it will be awesome. It seems mechanically ok. No binding, trigger pull is pretty stout in double action.
Thanks for all your input

You'll love it. My 4" version is my favorite K/L frame wheel gun.

I think you are going to really like this. I have both barrel lengths and have been gravitating to the 2 3/4" of late. I have the Hogue 500 X Frame grips on mine (on all my K,L,N frames) - makes them pleasant to shoot with the hottest ammo. I don't carry mine often but when I do, I just drop in the hip pocket of my Carharts (only get out for a couple of hours at most anymore).

Folks that I've let shoot the short bbl gun have remarked at how easy it is to hit with.

Enjoy,

Paul
