    PPC revolvers

    since the wise tactical sages say that the PPC system has been "dead" since about the last 6 years, so I am curious as to what has happened to the PPC revolvers.

    I have always wanted to find an actual ppc revolver, but they almost never appear on internet sales places. And wanting to get a prebuilt one to save the 800$ cost of converting a revolver that usually is restricted to specific hard to find models depending on who does the converting.

    found my clark converted model 10 at the gunshop for 200 bucks. They gunshop owner said it sat there for months because nobody wanted a big heavy barreled 38 special. The sights on it were worth more then that.

    A good one is a joy, and those who have them don't like to part with them.

    Have a Mod 67 that was converted by Bill Davis when they were in Anaheim back in the early 80's. Love to shoot that gun!

    Those of us who had them built years ago still use and enjoy them, because they are probably the most accurate revolvers ever built. I use mine for small game hunting and no woodchuck within 60 yards is safe. I find it amusing that the body of a woodchuck is about the same size as the 10-ring on the B27 target. With good ammunition they really do shoot like a rifle. I don't use anything fancy or exotic as for ammo, simply full-charge wadcutters Saeco #348 double-ender with 3.5 grains of Bullseye or 4 grains of W231.

    Much the same here. I've still got a 586 (re)built by TK Custom in the early 1990s that I get out when I feel like I'm in a 'slump' or plain just getting rusty. Hundred rounds, or so, and I feel much better.

    If you want one bad enough there are guys who will build them.

    There are enough used ones around on GunBroker, etc. I would check those out before having a new one built.

    Clark Custom Guns in Princeton louisiana may still be converting model 10's into PPC revolvers. But with the passing of Jim Clark don't know if they do that anymore. Google for their website. Frank

    A close friend of mine won a new S&W Model 14 in a pistol match. It was excess to his needs so he sold it to me at a friendly price. He also made me a custom set of grips (actually custom with me standing there being fitted as he made them). I couldn't afford a full house conversion, so I installed a Bomar Rib, myself (I was formally trained as a machinist). We had a serious bunch that shot PPC in my day and I have great memories of the people I shot with.

    Here is my "Poor Man's PPC Revolver":

    I still shoot in a PPC league. I bet we had 40 people in the league last year.

    I still have my Model 10 Bill Davis. Smooth as butter and a tack driver. I haven't competed in a match for years but it's still fun to shoot!

    Only have my cheap practice Model 18 (22LR) converted PPC left - built up by Old man Carter in Eugene Oregon back in late 70's early 80's - that man (retired machinest who made NASA stuff) knew how to build guns.

    Should have kept the model 28 he converted to 44 Spl.
