The Korth Super Sport Revolver is an interesting twist on the iconic revolver that many of us grew up shooting. This modern adaptation of the revolver is the brainchild of Korth Arms, a Giessen Germany based company that is being represented here in the United States by famed 1911 maker Nighthawk of Berryville, Arkansas.
Now looking at the picture you make think it looks heavy or awkward but this revolver offers a few twists and turns that will please many die hard revolver fans. Where do we start with the highlights of this new German offering to the American gun market.
How about the fact this pistol allows you to shoot .357 Magnum, .38 Special AND 9x19mm out of one gun ? I will admit I’m not a huge fan of revolvers but when I heard I can shoot all those calibers out of it, I have to say that I am more than a little intrigued, but be warned it’s German and imported by Nighthawk and that means it’s not cheap.
The Super Sport by North is a revolver that features a 6″ barrel and it made from as the company calls it “The finest billet materials available”. The frame is made of AISI 4140 Alloy Steel, which in a nut shell means its a blend of Chromium, Molybdenum, Iron, Manganese and a few other elements. This blend of alloy steel is reported to have a tensile strength in excess of 90,000 psi. The barrel also uses a high quality alloy steel, the AISI 4340 steel that has a slightly higher tensile strength (108,000 psi) and a higher melting temperature of 2600*Fahrenheit. Make no mistake, no expense was spared on building this pistol.
