Now that I have a rifle, I think I need the Revolver.

Anybody playing with one?
Any feedback / reviews?

Makes perfect sense to me to have one.
One Load = Two applications.
I would only have to buy one set of Dies.

How can you argue with that? LOL

I used to own an AMT Automag III in .30 carbine. It was great fun to shoot, especially at dusk as the fireball was impressive. Lots of muzzle blast, but very moderate recoil.

Yep. Saw the AMT's.
That would be sweet, but they are $$$$$ from what I have seen.

The 30 carbine handguns are a lot of fun and fire breathers for sure.

I've got two of them both 3 screw 7 1/2 inch Blackhawk's, these are my favorite pistols for carrying in the truck. With factory 110 loads they are impressive, with handloads of 85 grainer's they are outstanding and incredibly flat shooting. As others have already said they are loud but not quite the flame thrower with handload's designed for that barrel length.

Yep, everyone needs to shoot a wheel gun in .30 Carbine! Keep your hand away from cylinder/ barrel gap, or it will wake up.
Also need to shoot it at dusk, looks like a short barrel flame tower. There is no sound that is similar to it!
Mine was a early 1970s model.
