    The Korth Ranger is one of the newest and most exciting offerings from Korth, available exclusively through Nighthawk Custom.

    The Silver Mongoose from Korth features all the same features as the standard Nighthawk Mongoose, with an upgraded finish. Standard Mongoose models feature a black DLC finish, while the Silver Mongoose is coated with an equally durable silver DLC finish. Silver Mongoose models can only be produced in very limited numbers because of the increased polishing that is required on every surface before the revolver receives the coating. Finally, the Silver Mongoose comes standard with high-grade Turkish Walnut grips that provide a stunning appearance when matched with this unique finish.

    • Finish: Silver DLC Coated

    I’ve not personally had the chance to hold a Korth revolver, let alone shoot one, but I’d like to give one a try.  For those who have shot a Korth, how was your experience?  For those interested in the high-end revolver market, which of the four models intrigues you the most?
