    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.

    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 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.
