Perfect fit and finish. The grips leave much to be desired, but D frame Pachmayr grips fit perfectly. I got a feeling this is going to be a fun gun to shoot. I wasn\'t expecting much, but it really offers a lot. The overall look and feel... its like you\'re handing one of the revolvers the bad guys threw at Superman in the old B&W television show. Or like the revolver the cops used in cheap novels. There is a very old school, old feel, sort of throwback vibe to this revolver, and that really sets the fun status a bit higher. I sort of feel like it ought to have wood grips and be carried in a basket weave holster on a duty belt. Hey, the Colt speed loaders work with this one too. Its just about a Colt clone on the outside, more modern inside.

Great quality and accurate. Was hesitant to buy such a "value priced" firearm but glad I did. I only wish I would have ordered 2! Gun was completely covered in oil when arrived but after cleaning off the finish it looked great. Gun is overall better than I ever expected. Just buy one, you wont be disappointed! Plan on doing more business with Bud's again in the future. Best prices and fast shipping.

Great gun for the price you pay. I'm not a big fan of revolvers, but I really enjoy shooting this one. it needs a little clean up right out of the box because of all the packing grease, but it functioned really well on the range. I would not carry it as a primary weapon, but its a great backup gun to have around the house or in your car.

This gun is well made. I thought the polymer grip was going to be cheap and uncomfortable, but was surprised when it fit very comfortably in the hand. Good price for a 4\" barrel also. The guys at Buds in TN were ogling it when it came in and wanted to know where I got it shipped from.

Pistol does come with a Lot of oil, but I\'ll take that over rust any day. Trigger is not bad for such a low priced gun. Lock up could be a tad tighter but all in all quite pleased.

Love this gun! Buds, as usual, was very quick. Ordered the gun on a Saturday and picked it up on Tuesday! Took it to the range today for the first time and put 50 rounds through it with no issues at all. The trigger pull can't be better and, even though some have said that the DA pull is tough, I found both the SA and DA to be the same. Very easy to shoot--a real pleasure to use. 5 stars all around for both Buds and this 38 special.
