More teaser on my upcoming Bianchi Cup 2011 Metallic gun – practicing for the Barricade Stage, one of the hardest stages at the Cup in my opinion. It’s clearly a revolver, but beyond that it’s pretty hard to tell what exactly it is that I’m shooting. I will say this though, that gun can shoot. I was using PMC Bronze 132 grain FMJ because it was cheap and what I had in the ammo can and at 20 yards the gun shot a pretty tight offhand group.
Now, this just isn’t some revolver that I had built for the Cup, no this gun has a story to tell. Lots of stories to tell, in fact and some that I don’t know and won’t be able to tell on its behalf. But next May at the 32nd Bianchi Cup I’m going to try and write another chapter in its history – add another story to the list of places and events this revolver has taken part it; and I’m hoping that you’ll come along for the ride.
Oh yeah, that’s right. It shoots just fine at 20 yards. Six shots around the barricade in 7 seconds, standard IDPA target. I do need to get some AP-1 targets for practice starting here pretty soon, but if that was a Bianchi target, that would be 60-6x for sure. I’m excited about running this gun, and the practice leading up to it!
It looks like a Smolt…
…but it might just be what appears to be a vent-rib making me say that.
That is a vent-rib on the barrel, good eye.
(There someone had to guess it.)
I might be thinking of someone else, but I believe you’ve mentioned a relative’s ruger/python on this blog some time ago, so I’m gonna go with that.
That would be a Couger. 🙂
Which shockingly enough does have a vent rib barrel…
