I just looked at mine and the hammer can't go all the way to the cylinder unless the trigger is fully pulled back. If I try to push the hammer forward with my thumb, it will not go forward that last 3/32nds of a inch.

I'm satisfied to know at least some of them had a passive safety, and that's good enough for me.

I think when you get one of these (especially without being able to inspect it in person first such as in my case) it's like the proverbial box of chocolates. But I know what I'm getting into, and I've wanted one long enough to realize that isn't going to change until I go ahead and get one.

If I like it as much as I think I will, I'll probably collect them.

At least get the RG14. The RG10 is literally the most fragile gun I have ever owned. The RG14 also has a swing out cylinder.

Too late! I already got an RG10. I won't have it until next week though because it is being shipped to my LGS.

I don't buy revolvers with swing out cylinders which is why I have no interest in the RG14. I like loading gate and pull pin cylinder styles, and to a lesser extent break top.

Let us know when you get it what your thoughts are. You are missing out not buying swing out revolvers! Too many good ones to list.

I've owned a couple in the past but didn't keep them. I'm a left handed shooter and it always would bother me that I was using something designed for a right hander. That's not the only reason though, because there are models available that swing out to the right. Fast reloading is not a requirement for me in this case which makes a swing out cylinder an unnecessary feature. Generally speaking, a solid frame revolver will be stronger and have less to go wrong with it, but that doesn't really apply when talking about an RG10.

Maybe the only thing I feel I gave up are the double action 410 revolvers. I had a MIL Thunder Five, the forerunner of the Taurus Judge. But it wasn't a good design. I handled a poly Public Defender Judge at a gun show and really liked it, but I've heard people run down Taurus almost as much as Rohm. Aside from that I've always been able to satisfy my needs for whatever cartridge on a platform I prefer.

Taurus is leaps and bounds above Rohm. This comes from experience. Plus at least Taurus is still in business to sell parts and warramty their guns.

Oh, I'd own a Taurus. I'm as far from a snob as it gets. I'd own just about anything besides maybe a Clerke. My first gun ever was a suicide special breaktop in 32 rimfire if I remember correctly. So long ago I really don't, or what brand it was. I know it was a real POS though. My next gun was a Davis .32 acp semi auto and I always liked it. I still have that gun, sort of. I left it in another state with my mother when I moved and I've never been able to talk her into shipping it to me even though I explained it is perfectly legal if done correctly. Oh well. I wouldn't use it these days anyway because I'd never trust carrying it with a chambered round and having to rack the slide first is a serious disadvantage in my book if carrying for SD.

I'm easy to please when it comes to quality or lack thereof, so that's why I expect to be satisfied with an RG10.

Haha, don't worry I'm not expecting much. I got the feeling I shouldn't when I saw the RG10 doesn't even get much love around here. And where else if not here?
