    I have a couple already so wouldn't pay that much.
    They are fine revolvers.
    Back in the day they were used a lot in PPC snubby matches.

    Got several .22 rifles hanging around here.

    The ones I shoot most are the 10/22s, a Ruger bolt 77/22, and

    They shoot to the same point of aim as my 158 grain LSWC reloads so

    CZ and Howa make bolt-action carbines in 7.62 X 39.
    The magazines are detachable and protrude from the stock a bit.
