Remington ………the revolver of choice
« on: June 11, 2014, 08:45:38 AM »

I have a line on a few Hege revolvers that were originally made in Germany. However their advertising literature is now listed them as the “Hege – Uberti” revolver. People are saying that the ones presently offered are being built by Uberti and ‘tuned’ by Hege. Is this the story or are there others?
I know from experience that the Remington is the revolver of choice by competitive shooters but is this Hege Remington worth the asking price? 
There are other less expensive options though, Pedersoli is offering a “Match grade” Remington while Pietta has always offered their “Target” model Remington with the rear adjustable sights and Euroarms, has offered in the past a Remington with a “Match” grade barrel. Are any of these options better than the new Hege revolver and has anyone seen matches where these revolvers are pitted against each other.

Granted, one Hege against one “Match Grade” Pedersoli Remington against one “Match Grade” Pietta Remington isn’t really going to prove anything. That competition will just prove that the one specific revolver can best the other two specific revolvers, but has anyone who is into these competitions seen these revolver go up against each other consistently and if they have is the German Hege Remington really, “The World’s Best”
