    Default Manurhin MR73 revolvers now imported by Beretta

    Manurhin MR73 revolvers are now being imported into the USA by Beretta. These high quality .357 Magnums have been successfully used by the legendary GIGN anti-terrorist unit from France.

    TFB TV has posted a nice video review on YouTube, discussing quality, fit & finish, performance. Two models, 4" and 5.25" barrels. Beretta catalog price of $3,300. TFB estimates retail about $3,000. He also said that these fine machines are available only at the New York and Dallas Beretta boutique stores.

    That’s very cool! I’ve been getting back into wheel guns lately and these guns are very interesting.

    "Ouch!"

    What the French said, too. And so:

    But not for long.

    So 3k for a used Ruger GP copy. Pass.

    If I am going to drop that kind of cash on a .357 it will be a 1970s blue Python.

    Actually those are the Service Six/Manhurin replacements for the original guns, which were too spendy. The Ruger designers no doubt were shaking their heads at the incorporation of a sideplate and the elimination of their handy takedown system.

    Here's an actual MR73:

    Available in a variety of barrel lengths, grip configurations, with or without adjustable sights.
