    Firestorm 38 Hammerless Revolver

    Does anyone have any experience with this revolver? Is ist a decent made gun? Is it not worth the $300 new I am looking to buy it for? It is made I believe by the same people who make Bersa. I am thinking of buying one for my mother. She will not be shooting it very much but would like a hammerless 38 revolver to carry. Thanks in advance for any info. FS38R is the model just click on it.

    Hmm link no werky...

    Let me try this one:

    http://www.bersa.com/skin/frontend/b...rsaCatalog.pdf

    If that does not work, go to www.bersa.com and click on "Catalog" in the menu, which loads a .pdf of their catalog. Page 10 is where the revolvers are.

    The first thing I noticed is this: Manufactured by Armscor. I suggest checking the reliability of Armscor (if I am remembering correctly a Philippine Corporation.) and see how they are. I have not owned Armscor manufactured firearms, but have heard good "bang for the buck" statements about them...

    Another suggestion: Go to Armscor's website: http://www.armscor.com.ph/

    And look for the models similar/ exact to the one you are looking at from Firestorm (a distributor that re-badges products) and see if the Armscor firearm is less expensive.

    EDIT: Ok, I am not seeing a hammerless Armscor from their site, but the looks of the M206 revolver they make is nearly identical, except for the hammer.

    The last line of the description of the bottom revolver (model 206) says the 206A is spurless.

    Minor point-the revolver does not appear to be hammerless, but has a recessed hammer which will be apparent when the trigger is pulled.

    Armscor has earned a pretty good rep amongst budget 1911 folks.
    I tried out several ARMSCOR made 1911's myself and liked them a lot.
    It could be a serious bang-for-the-buck bargain.
