    King Super Target...

    I was finally able to pick this up this morning at my local gun shop - sold to me by Reconciler. Condition was a bit better then his descriptions - fortunately I have a nice set of Sanderson Stocks that came on my 1937 Officers Model Heavy Barrel - but I'd sure would love to find a set of Ropers or another set of Sandersons for a right handed shooter. The revolver is single action only with a very short DA trigger pull - pulling the trigger in double action rotates the cylinder, one chamber at a time. It also came with a trigger shoe and King's nifty mirror to help light up the front sight for a better sight picture. I will try to get it to the range tomorrow. I'm going to have to check on whether or not the stocks that came on the gun can be fixed...Swampy I will reach out to you by PM.

    I forgot to mention - at the gunshop we measured the single action trigger pull - a very consistent 3-1/16# pull...very smooth!

    Very nice piece with good pictures. I really like that front sight and rib.

    Super nice! I have never shot any of mine. Give us a range report!
    Every King gun deserves a set of Ropers!
