I've wanted another one of these for a while, but I'm not sure I can afford to go through the process again and chance of losing that much money. It would be nice if he would sell some or all of the remaining stock to a dealer who could market and sell them better.
Update as of 6/26/19. No gun, no contact from JR, no timeline. I am not looking at this point to have any kind of conversation with him just to send me text/email with tracking # timeline. Excellent customer service experience continues....
My revolver arrived this week and I picked it up yesterday. Took a long time with no communication and that was quite disconcerting.... but in the end I got the revolver and it's everything I hoped for.
3.5 inch pc model is something to consider. Very smooth but kicks like a mule but what 500s doesnt depending on powder and bullet weight. I have the 3.5 used to have 4 inch compensated model 3.5 is smoother/quieter if that is possible with 500 and with the loads i use no more of a handful. The 3.5 does need a higher front sight or lower rear sight as mine shoots high with heavier loads. On order with S&W with no eta on delivery as they have neither in stock.
