    A friend came by today with a new toy, a armscor model 200 38 special, a nice looking revolver. my question is anyone own one, and how good are they?

    I've had my M206 for about a year now. Mine is a bit unusual in that the standard M206 has a 2" barrel and wood grips. Mine has a 3" barrel and rubber/plastic grips like on the M200. I guess it was built as sort of a tweener.

    It shoots great and has been 100% dependable. Extremely accurate too (comparatively) out to 25 yards. The only problem I've hadafter about 1,500 rounds through it is in the cylinder release mechanism, or the thumb piece as S&W calls it. If you don't keep it well lubricated, I use with lithium grease now, it'll bind and not let the cylinder unlatch to swing out.

    IMO, these are an extremely good value for the price.

    Thanks for the information, I think i will by one. I think $150 is a pretty good price for a 38 special and its a really goodlooking gun.

    Awesome gun. Only 2 problems are personal and not the guns fault. Doesn't handle +P, and isn't .357 for multiple ammo types.

    Armscor does make a .357. I've only ever seen one but they are, to turn a phrase, badd ass.

    Hmm. I have never seen one or even heard of one. But I guess that doesn't mean there isn't one.
