    This gun is jaw dropping to shoot and handle, Ron Power built the some of, if not the best competition revolvers of the 70's and 80's, this one built in 1978 has nearly all the options, ~6# DA pull, Stippled backstrap, locking strain screw, Custom Bomar sight rib, numbered chambers, heavy slab sided barrel. and JUST LOOK AT the original GUY HOGUE handmade Rosewood grips, these grips alone will fetch 250-350 on Ebay. This gun is also interesting in that it is a 357 magnum base and not a 38 special.

    Has some bluing wear you would expect to see on a gun of its age, but it is an amazing machine.

    $975 Shipped

    This is Unicorn-you never see these anymore. I never shot PPC, but I remember reading about Ron Power custom revolver's & your right-he was the best. Helluva time capsule!
