Is Mitchell Aarms still around, or were they bought up by Uberti?
They were making revolvers, alot of SAA copies.
Can't find them.

If it's the same "Mitchell" that imported the AR, AK stuff in .22 cal they're history.

Among their other junk, Mitchell made the worlds worst Mini-14 30 round mag. It had the wrong curve. Held next to a Ruger, PMI, even a USA mag, it was curved with a much shorter radius. It would feed the first 10 or 12 rounds, then the rounds would come up tail low, and the bolt would strike the middle of the case, denting them quite badly, enough not not chamber.

Nothing could make these function. Bad design. I have to wonder if Mitchell actually tried to fire these themselves? Normally the Mini-14, if nothing else, will function 100%.

As I understand it, Mitchell Arms is no longer in business.

I don't know about mags, but I do know that they produced an exceptional copy of the Colt SAA. THey offered it in a variety of calibers, including 357/38 spl...in a bright nickel finish.
The one I saw was in 45LC/45ACP (2 barrels) and the fit & finish were excellent. THe wood to metal fit was exceptional.
I looked through their sight about a year ago, & now it is gone.

Campy, if your friend has any of these SAA's laying around (since he is picking up pieces) let me know.

Skammy, that site is a poor imitation of what was.

Campy, I had also heard that they [the frames at least] were produced in Italy. Rumor was that they were from Uberti..possible, but I don't think so.
I'll have to go back to the local shop here that has one. It's in 45LC w/ a 45ACP cylinder as an added extra. I really wanted this in 357/38spl so I can shoot the cheap 38spl all day long with no kick.
They made a real nice nickel finish. I guess I waited too long to get one. I have never seen one on the 'net in 357/38. At least not with the 4.5" barrel.
