I have/had my fair share of revolvers, TCs, and bolt guns, but this is one of my favorites still:




I bought this "Competitor Pistol" years ago. I think that they have long been out of production, but it is still one that I grab to hunt deer on many occasions. I have several barrels for it, but this one, a 257 Roberts AI, is the one that is on it most of the time. A rather unique handgun, and very accurate!

Your picture isn't loading for me but another frequent flyer on here loves his competitors too. Franchise. I'm sure he'll see this and comment.

I tried hosting the picture on another site. Is it visible to you now? Not that its critical, but pic hosting can be a pain when you want to use them on forums.

Sadly, what we have now, or can find used are all there will be. I wish that I had grabbed up some extra parts before they closed their doors.

These pistols were a prime example of ?form follows function.? There are better looking guns out there but the competitor just works. I love the way that they balance, handle recoil, etc.

How about a Sterling X-Caliber in 44 Magnum?

Or an E.A. Brown BF falling block in 22LR?

I have a 221 Fireball barrel that came with mine. I don?t think that I?ve ever fired it. Maybe someday if the mood strikes.
