New SS Colt Agent Snubbys

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I think that Colt firearms is climbing on the short barreled ATK Speer 38 Spec. 135 gr. JHP ammunition bandwagon. This one will maximize the ballistics of this new ammunition. Now, I'm left handed, and shoot with my left hand. so the push to open S&W design doesn't bother me. But for the 90% who are right handed, you won't accidentally break open one of these, with your right thumb, as the cylinder's latch has to be pulled backwards, to open it.

It will also have a small edge over the same ammo shot out of a 357 Snubby, due to their deeper chambers. It doesn't fall much behind a 125 gr. S.D. Magnum load, either.

It also sports a full under barrel shrouded ejector push rod, which, presumably, still turns with the cylinder, and this used to be a worry if you bent it over someone's head. As may be expected, it also has a transfer bar ignition. But I think it still should be carried with an empty chamber under its hammer. Ditto with the S&W 37's, so its a classic 4 vs. 5 shot comparison.
