Just a couple of weeks ago Nighthawk Custom & Korth released a new, beautiful, .357 Magnum revolver. Now they are introducing a meaner model apparently based on the same frame: the Korth Ranger .357. Again this is part of the four new releases initially announced a few months back.
Nighthawk Custom & Korth Release Ranger .357 Magnum Revolver
Here below the full Press Release:
The Korth Ranger is one of the newest and most exciting offerings from Korth, available exclusively through Nighthawk Custom. The concept behind the Korth Ranger was to design a functional 4” barrel revolver that incorporated a picatinny rail on top for mounting optics, and below for mounting a light/laser.
FULLY MACHINED PARTS
Like every Korth, the Ranger features all fully machined parts that are fitted by the hands of expert gunsmiths in Germany.
FILLS MANY ROLES
The Ranger sports a skeletonized barrel shroud that shows the polished Lothar Walther Barrel through precisely machined windows. Beautiful Jim Wilson model Turkish Walnut Grips are standard, and combined with a DLC finish, they provide a contrast that is both visually appealing and highly functional.
The Nighthawk Custom website lists the following Specifications and Features:
- Finish: DLC
- Caliber: .357 Magnum
- Weight: 2.42 lbs.
- Barrel Length: 4”
- Overall Length: 8.86”
- Width: 1.54”
- Height: 6.1”
- Barrel Material: 416R
- Finish: DLC
- Cold forged precision barrel
- Double action & single action trigger
- Adjustable rear sight (left-right & up-down)
- Fast changeable front sight
- Removable side panels (front sight) for different disciplines
- High speed hammer
- Jim Wilson wood grip
- Changeable cylinder in 9 mm Luger (shooting without clips) available
The Korth Ranger offers certainly a more modern take on the lines of the Mongoose. Whether you love the aggressive features or you think it looks like the result of a German honeymoon between a S&W TRR8 and a Ruger Super GP100, this model surely reflects the build quality Korth is known for. Starting at $4,799.00 the Ranger is far from cheap, yet more accessible than the Mongoose Silver.
