BotR jumps on to the Manurhin MR73 love-fest bandwagon, well almost. Instead of gushing about the new production models now being distributed by Beretta, Chap will introduce his vintage original 80s 4” target model MR73 and reveal the most important feature of its lockwork, the key to the excellent double action that everyone waxes lyrical about. In addition we’ll take a closer look at the 9mm cylinder which was offered as an accessory back in the day and see what the performance is like when swapping cylinders at 25m and 50m.
