It’s time for someone else to make revolvers.

Well, it’s more precise to say that it’s time for someone else to make double-action revolvers!

With Colt out of the revolver business, Taurus showing no signs of moving past the low end of the market, Dan Wesson functionally deceased, and Smith & Wesson producing mere shadows of their former greatness, it’s time for someone else to step up to the plate. It’s time for someone to take over the badly-served upper end of the revolver market.

It’s time for Freedom Arms to branch out from making the best single actions to making the best double actions.

Why Freedom Arms? Because they’ve already proven their ability to make a high-grade revolver. They’re used to producing and selling high-end guns, and they know how to make those guns both superbly accurate and incredibly durable. They have a well-regarded brand name, and an established dealer network.

They have everything it would take to introduce a top-flight double action revolver.

It is, admittedly, a small market. The best of anything is always a small market. That doesn’t seem to stop Rolls Royce or Patek Philippe, and I don’t think it would stop Freedom Arms. There are a lot of people who would have purchased Pythons were they still being made to their former standards, and those would be Freedom Arms’ customers.

How about it, FA?
