    This is a revolver that harkens back to the days when a revolver was a hand-built piece of functioning art. The frame and all parts are fully machined from the finest billet steel available, and hand built by a single gunsmith. The trigger face is high polished, and the Roller Trigger is one of the most awe-inspiring aspects of this pistol that provides an unmatched trigger feel in either single or double action.
