    Highly Polished Finish but essentially same as standard models

    There is no getting around it- this model is shinier than the regular model and looks a little nicer but as far as I can tell that is the only extra feature. Mechanically it is the same as the standard models except that this model has the firing pin simulated on the hammer. I dont know if this is a Classics upgrade or an upgrade across all models. To be honest the reason I bought the Classics version was to more or less guarantee that I would get a model with the proper cylinder stops- often in the catalog and online the same model is depicted with the proper cylinder stop or the line-groove interchangeably. I hope it is clear what I mean. It would be nice if there were grip options- that is that you could buy extra grips separately. I would for example like to be able to customize a revolver to look like Pattons or perhaps someone elses famous gun. Mechanically it is not as much a replica as the old Replica Models where the model disassembled more like a real gun. On the other hand there is no unsightly metal rod in the muzzle or cylinders to detract from display appearance so mechanically I guess we break even. All and all I am happy with this model.
