Euroarms Rogers & Spencer

Postby joseyclosey » Thu Sep 06, 2018 2:53 pm

My latest BP revolver is the euroarms R & S in the London Grey stainless finish, .44 cal with a Lothar Walther barrel. A lovely pistol with an excellent trigger, it shoots slightly left and high so i need to take a 4 or 5 o clock hold on the target, which isn't too easy for me, but I'm still well pleased with this my latest purchase. I don't think these are being manufactured any longer ( though I could be wrong).
A few pics from a recent shoot...

The Rogers and Spencer feels like a modern pistol..... a Dirty Harry special kind of pistol. I've got a Euroarms version too but with a different finish. Had it a long time . It came with an extra set of nipples and a nipple wrench from Dixie Gun Works. Can't say as I know exactly where the extra set of nipples are at the moment. I'm sure I didn't through them out.

The only thing about the design I don't like is that the loading ram can be taken out by the turn of a screw that turns too easy for my liking and only needs to turn a half turn.

The pistol I have has been modified with "target" sights that can be adjusted for windage and the front sight is pretty tall. Haven't shot it in years. Need to remedy that.

Those are really nice looking pistols, I especially like the extra room behind the trigger guard that my
Remington lacks. Mine is a 1972 model by Armi San Paolo, which was later bought out by Euroarms.
Are both of your guns of Italian origin?

Mine was made in Italy. However it says Euroarms of America on the top of the barrel. Serial number 024xxx

Lovely pistol, I've fired one a few times and liked it a lot.

The first time I fired one was by invitation from a new and proud owner, I fired a shot and took the 'X' out at 25 metres, handed the pistol back and said "Nice gun", there was no way that I was going to fire a second shot. :loco:

Vern, I assume mine is Italian made though there is nothing on the paperwork, box or pistol to say it was.
