I like that 351PD.

Now, if that were silver, and with the shrouded hammer, would that be a 651PD?

Do they make that same exact gun in silver/shrouded? Same sights, grip, caliber, everything else?

No. Once you add the shrouded hammer it is not the same family, no matter what the finish is.

Closest match is the 638...

Or, 538 in black...

Also, wrong caliber.

So, sounds like a no-go then.

Maybe get a black and bob the hammer yourself?
Yeah. No shrouded wheelguns in .22mag. You could pay through the nose and have a custom shop build one if you find the right place. Cha-ching, but you'd have what you want. Ruger's LCR is closest fit...

LCR-X is eXternal hammer, right? Can't you just bob that off a little?

found this:

There are videos on bobbing hammers, but I'll give you some advice if you'll hear me out.

Don't bob the hammer before you thoroughly put it through its paces including unloaded draw, presentation and dry-fire with snaps.

Once you bob it, it won't grow back like a crab claw. Make sure you absolutely need it bobbed first. A replacement S&W hammer is probably a third the price of the gun.

I have 2 S&W M360J's that have exposed hammers and I have no problems with snag-free draw because I slow-practiced it well.
I would not bob them...
They don't need it.

But everyone is different, maybe you would be best suited with a bobber. Just don't do it first... Do it Last.
You will find that hammer spur is a beautiful thing when single-action is needed...

The LCR-X has a spur. (Which can be bobbed)
Just remember, when you bob a trigger you remove Mass. Less Mass can translate into increased possibility for light-strikes. In a defensive situation you may be vulnerable. Range test the piss out of it post-bobbing and find an ammo that goes bang 100% of the time with YOUR MODIFIED GUN...

That is all well and good, but what you really need is a "10 Best Concealed Carry Snub-Nose Revolvers for Coyote33"

You get down to those 10 by putting in the range time with Rental Ranges that Sell those firearms.

Don't rush yourself into a shit purchase. Do your due diligence.
These threads are a good start, but it is time for some live-fire...

"Bobs" are, or are not.
not "a little off"...


meaning, either you take it down or attempt to leave a little "edge" for your thumb. Useless in my opinion...

I like a bobbed hammer simply for the feedback when holstering. I leave a little nub, but it's not necessary.
I keep my thumb on the little nubbin and feel if the trigger has snagged on anything.

because you have said that you want a .22mag then the Ruger
No shrouded wheelguns in .22mag

Why the LCRX and not the straight LCR in .22 wmr? Both are 6-shot...
no need to bob it either...
Follow the progression here. I'm with you, but you're just in a different order.

Hammerless can't be fired "single-action". A hammer can. Even a "bobbed" hammer. Not one of the "nub" style ones, though.




"Bobs" are, or are not.
not "a little off"...
Was thinking something more like just shortening the hammer a little, like this (pardon the MS Paint graphics):

Maybe I used the wrong term/phrase. I meant just make the hammer a little less obtrusive, so it doesn't stick out as much. Whatever that is called.

I went through jungle training in 1966 prior to shipping out to 'the Vietnam' . A bunch of us went to Phenix, Alabama aka (the dirtiest city in the Country) I bought this puppy later realized I'm a bit undergunned and sold it in Vietnam with box to a guy in my platoon. Would have been nice to have hung on to it.

It is in different order because I was referring to S&W and then Ruger... Take each post as independent of the others.

But what about this?


Now YOU are on the right track. This is how I arrived at a "partially smaller hammer spur" idea.
We're both on the right track... they're just running parallel to each other. [rofl]
