Are these still being made? I remember several years ago when they were the most expensive handgun made anywhere in the world.

Been years since i've seen one, and yes they had the reputation back in the 80's as the worlds most expensive revolver.. Always thought it odd that the gun "press" never did a story on them. Don't want to sound all "conspiracy", but the mag' are suported by the advertising of the major mfg's. All i know is you never saw any info on them except that they were so expensive.. Kinda looks like a blend of an L frame and a python huh. Nobile, talk to us guy..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Korth revolver, .357 Mag, german, stil in production, foto at IWA Nurnberg 2006.

I remember test in DWJ magazine in 1978. about Colt Python 6" barrel and Korth 4" barrel.
Korth was much accurately and better finish, minimum tolerances compared at Colt (in 1978. Colth Python was ultimate revolver in the world).
And price was like almost 3 Pythons.
Price today is about 3 - 4.000,00 €, depend on finish, lenght of the barrel and more.
Look at next pics:)

Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
