SOLD - Rare, Mint West German Korth Revolver - .357 Magnum
3/1/18 - Arguably the best and the most expensive revolver ever made, Korth was designed by Willie Korth in West Germany in the mid sixties, with all parts completely hand made from one solid billet of steel, hand fitted and beautifully finished. The trigger system was proprietary, invented by Herr Korth himself and rivaled the action of the S&W and Colt Python revolvers of that era. The cylinder was yet another innovation and could be removed from the frame together with yoke with a push of the button. This particular model is the “Sport” model, chambered in .357 magnum, with a 6-inch barrel, adjustable rear sight, and target checkered grips, which proved to be the best combination for a target and a tactical shooter alike. The trigger pull is like butter - crisp and easy. The finish is high gloss original blue rates at 99% with a tiny rub mark on the rear grip strap. The bore is mint. The gun is proofed and dated 66 (1966) on the barrel which qualifies for C&R.
