The Drifter offers nice balance, accuracy, a unique safety system, and a slick action and trigger. The front-sight blade was thick for easier target acquisition. The slick grip curled the revolver in our hand during recoil when shooting one handed. The finish was nice.
The Drifter is similar to an original Colt SAA revolver except for the barrel and the mechanism. The barrel on the Drifter is octagonal, not round. It also uses a retractable firing pin, allowing a user to safely carry it fully loaded.
