About the Handgun:
Korth handguns are very high quality and are literally manufactured one-at-a-time, resulting in limited mfg. (less than 100 annually) and extremely limited importation to the US. These guns are as rare as they are expensive.
About the Manufacturer:
Founded in 1954 by Willi Korth, a railway engineer, this gunmaking business began by manufacturing alarm revolvers using steel from scrapped WWII vintage machine guns. This enabled Korth to profit from the design of his basic action and to develop the strict quality standards which would later be applied to his conventional revolvers. The first cartridge revolver appeared in 1964. A pistol was developed shortly before Korth's death in 1982 but did not reach the market for some years later. In April, 2000 the Korth company was purchased by Freylinger & Co., gunsmiths in Levange, Luxemburg. Korth guns are renowned for their exceptional quality, and are priced appropriately.
About the Cartridge:
Smith & Wesson introduced this cartridge for its heavy-frame revolver. Ammunition was developed by Winchester in cooperation with Smith & Wesson. Using a lengthened and strengthened version of the .38 Special case, the .357 Magnum was rapidly accepted by hunters and law enforcement. At the time of its introduction, it was claimed to easily pierce the body panels of automobiles and crack engine blocks. While it has less power than the .44 Magnum, it compares favorably to the 10mm Norma and .45 ACP, but with better armor penetration. Today factories offer over fifty different loadings in this caliber.
