RG 66 Buntline?

Postby LCPfraTN » Mon May 29, 2017 9:08 pm

I recently had the opportunity to buy an RG 66 with what appeared to be almost a buntline length barrel. I didn't measure it, but I'm guessing at least an 8 inch barrel. The asking price was $175 plus tax and $10 background check fee, so approximately $200 all in. It seemed to be in pretty good condition and lock up was pretty good, but the hammer locked up in half cock a couple times while I was going through a lockup check of the complete cylinder a few times. I was able to get it unlocked each time, and it functioned well as long as I didn't rush each hammer cock and release, but it bothered me enough to pass on it at the asking price. I'm thinking I may tell them I might be willing to buy it for $150, but would really be more comfortable at $125. Anybody have any experience with an RG model 66? Thoughts on price?

I had one that I bought in 1970 in Arizona. Functioning was great on it. Fairly accurate I think, I always was a terrible handgun shooter! :oops:

No experience with it, but the hammer locking up on it would definitely give me pause at the price.
But if you got the price down to $125... heh, heh, heh - I'd probably go for it.

Yeah price is a bit high. Don't know what the problem could be, but if you do buy it I will hope that the hammer issue would be an easy fix for you! :D
