Rock Island Armory M206

Last week I bought myself my first revolver. 38 Special +P rated. I've already loaded 200 rounds of varied loads to see what it likes.

It's basically a spurless copy of a Colt Detective Special.

Looks like it will make a great carry revolver. Congrats on your first revolver. :)

Made my very first trip to an indoor range yesterday. Shot over 200 rounds through the snubby. Lots of fun. The hotter loads were little dragons.

I've been thinking about one of these for some time. With Colt's announced release of a revamped D frame snubby, to be called Cobra, it might have to wait until a new Cobra is acquired and shot some. My older Cobra is some ounces lighter loaded, even with 4" barrel, than this one is empty. Four of the D frame revolvers here, Diamondback 6" .22 LR, Detective Special, and two 4" Cobra 38s. The M200 or M206 would flesh that out nicely, I think.

GB, I forgot to ask how that double action trigger works. Knowing that it's not a target piece, I just wonder if it is fairly smooth and light enough from a practical standpoint?

I love snub nosed revolvers! Was always drawn toward them.

I saw a 4" RIA at my favorite gun shop and just couldn't bring myself to buy it. Was worried about the track record on them. But I did pick up a LNIB EAA Windicator 357 mag, 6 shot, 2" barrel!

I will keep an eye out for one of these.

How has the Windicator ran for you? Have you shot it yet? I would like to buy one of these, but some of the reports on them are sketchy. :?:

It's running great! I took it today to run and gun with a couple of other pistols that was on the auction block if I couldn't out shoot my SCCY with them, they are gone tomorrow.

But the Windicator is staying. Shoot about 100 LSWC 38SP +p reloads I had, 50 38 +p+ 110 XTPs, and some leftover 158gr XTP 357mag Reloads I had for my rifle. It's a solid wheelgun! I carry my Lead WCs in it and at +p 38SP velocity/pressures. I would want to go heavy on the 357 Mag loads, but it's a well made weapon.

I do hate that I can't get some walnut grips for it.
