Received the gun less than 48 hours after I ordered it. Thanks Buds! I have been considering getting one of these wheel guns for a while; reviews are generally positive. My review is all good. The wood grips fill my hand nicely; they are tooled pretty well and fit the gun perfectly. The revolver has an old-school look to it, which I like. The action was a bit sticky and stiff at first, but loosened up nicely after dry-firing 300 times or so. This M206 does NOT have the fit and finish of a Smith/Wesson or Ruger, but it still goes BANG every time, and is dead-on accurate out to 15 yards. The gun came absolutely soaked in grease...I have wiped it down several times and grease continues to leach out from the screws, seams etc. There are machining marks at various places on the gun, but again, accuracy and reliability are not affected whatsoever. This will go in my SUV glove box as a backup to the Chief's Special I carry daily. I am already thinking of buying another M206.

First of all, let me say that buying from Bud\'s was a superb experience. I ordered my firearm on Sunday morning, and it arrived at my FFL by Wednesday, before lunch. I couldn\'t be happier with them. As far as the M206...I did extensive online research, and knew I was risking getting a firearm that would need work before it could be trusted, and that\'s what happened. The cylinder is out of timing, and doesn\'t lock up before the hammer falls, in double action mode. This only happens when the trigger is pulled slowly - when pulled fast it locks up fine. For this reason, I returned the gun (unfired) to Armscor for warranty repair. I haven\'t yet received any feed back from them, although they\'ve only had it for a couple of days. I do trust they will fix this problem, or replace the gun with one that works. As a fail-safe, I did buy the extra warranty from Bud\'s, so I know either way I\'m covered. I bought this gun for its looks, for fun, and for something inexpensive that I don\'t have to worry too much about. I\'m confident that in the end, I\'ll be satisfied. If not, I\'ll certainly update this review (if possible).

Pretty good little revolver, once you get the oil off it. I was pleasantly surprised at the accuracy of it as well. I only had one issue, the cylinder locked up during rapid DA fire. However I think it was my fault rather than the gun's. All in all I'm very satisfied, and highly pleased with Bud's easy and fast purchase process.

When I received it , it showed sticky trigger problem ( trigger didn\'t \"reset\" ). I sent it back for repairing. After I fired 200 rounds , it got a loose cylinder. I sent back to the Rock Island to repair under life time warranty. They say they may replace it.( I prefer they refund it) I am waiting for their answer. I can\'t trust this revolver anymore.

The first time I shot this gun it would not shoot more than 3 rounds with out the trigger sticking and the cylinder release was jamed and would not work properly and the more I shot it the worse it got I\'m contacted the manufacturer and there going to fix or replace it I have other firearms from this this manufacturer and they all work just fine but I am very disappointed with build quality with this particular model
