Talking Longtom picked up today

I picked up the 1972 OM 3-Screw Single-Six 9-1/2" barreled revolver today. She is a beauty!

The best part is that my existing 1969 Single-Six .22 magnum cylinder DROPPED RIGHT IN!

She fits with no end shake or wobble and locks up nicely at full cock.

She appears to index properly as well. B/C gap looks to be normal and she spins freely.

And the 7/32" drill bit entered the muzzle with no problem!

I guess I got lucky, huh?







I'll get her out to the canyon soon and be back for a range report.

Until then.......

Something that long requires a scabbard, not a holster
