LATEK Safari RF-461 is a revolver with the best accuracy indicators, it is equipped with an adjustable aiming bar.
Safari revolvers are characterized by the high quality of their components, which increases their reliability. So, the drums are made of durable weapon steel, which guarantees it high resistance to deformation and mechanical damage. And the steel rifled barrels of Safari revolvers are processed externally by the raven method. At the same time, revolvers chambered for Flaubert Safari series are equipped with a double-action trigger mechanism: it helps to increase the rate of fire, but reduces its accuracy and accuracy. To improve these characteristics, it is recommended to cock the trigger manually before firing.
The material of the handle is also important:
- Rubber + metal give maximum reliability and unpretentiousness. In addition, this handle fits perfectly and does not slip out.
- Wooden handles are resistant to overheating and have a nice design.
- Plastic handles allow you to save on the cost of the gun.
Do not be afraid to make a mistake, because all the handles are replaceable and can be replaced over time.
