Another reviewer asked, so I will put this here:

I have owned this gun almost a year and have been content with it. Nothing new to add to what others have said: it's solid, it shoots well, the finish isn't top notch but looks fine, the grips looks great but are a little odd without a Tyler T-grip or some D frame grips. Great for the price.

I own this Desantis Colt Detective holster, and the M206 fits in it perfectly.

Just received this after the dreaded 10 day Calif. waiting period. I've bought several guns from Bud's and the shipping hasn't been as fast as some others but one thing's for sure, Bud's always comes through.

This is a great revolver for the price but it's a BRICK! Even though I read reviews stating how heavy it is, I didn't realize just how heavy it really is! But with it's robust build, it should last a lifetime or two. Compared to my S&W 442, this makes the J frame seem light as a feather. It is also a lot larger. Funny too as my smaller and much lighter 442 shoots .38 P ammo easily and this revolver isn't rated for P but I'm sure it would shoot a small amount without damage but I'll stick with the non P fare.

Weight aside, it really is a good value for the money. My example has some cylinder play but it's not too bad. The single action and double action trigger pulls are very smooth. The finish for this revolver at this price point isn't as bad as some have complained and anyway, this is a revolver to USE and not worry about the finish.

Even though I love the look of the walnut grips it came with and I have small hands, they just don't work. I went with others and bought the Pachmayr part #02513 Colt "D" series grips and they are much better especially with a revolver this heavy.

Even though this revolver is a big stretch for pocket carry, it is too large to fit into S&W J frame pocket holsters. Does anyone know of a pocket holster that this revolver will fit into?

The RIA M-206 is a revolver worthy of consideration. It seems patterned after the Colt Detective Special albeit with a less refined finish! The finish is typical Parkerized and is quite adequate for any normal, everyday carry use.
The gun is SMOOTH...DA pull is smooth and light, as is the SA pull.
The cylinder rotates RIGHT as view from behind which means BETTER.
Actully, the trigger pull in both DA and SA is pretty nice....I see no reason anyone would question that.
I highly recommend this revolver for SD use!
