The Korth Super Sport GTS .357 Magnum is the Stuff of Dreams

by Tommy Grant

When Korth releases a revolver like the Super Sport GTS, available through Nighthawk Custom, you know you can expect greatness. The pistol is feature-rich, with an included performance kit that provides options for weight bars, replaceable adjustable front sights, replaceable adjustable rear sights, a compensator, and more. Not to mention a roller trigger and Turkish Walnut grips.

Featuring a DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) finish, the frame includes a three-slot Picatinny rail for installing an optic. In addition, Turkish Walnut grips with finger grooves and a slight palm swell provide a comfortable and ergonomic shooting experience. Just rear of the rail is the interchangeable rear sight. You can choose between the installed rear sight with light gap regulation, serrated, or fiber optic. All are adjustable for windage and elevation.

Nestled within the frame is the triple-lock, quick-detach, 6-round .357 Magnum cylinder cut for moon clips. The quick-detach operation allows the user to quickly change out the cylinder for an optional 9mm cylinder.

A 6-inch Lothar Walther cold-forged polygonal barrel delivers increased accuracy and performance. The barrel sits within a vented barrel housing with a five-slot Picatinny rail on the underside. This allows for attaching the aluminum or steel weight bars or the weight bar and compensator combination. As a result, you can reduce muzzle rise in just the right amount for you.

Sitting atop the barrel housing is an interchangeable, four-position, multi-distance front sight. The GTS comes with a square post front sight installed but is interchangeable between the included fiber optic or gold bead front sights. Each sight plate includes four pre-set adjustments for setting the height to predetermined distances.

What really sets the GTS apart is the roller trigger, providing smooth operation in both single- and double-action. Additionally, the thumb safety allows for quick release when ready to fire.

The Super Sport GTS comes with the performance kit, with everything you need to dial in the performance and accuracy. It comes with two weight bars (aluminum and steel), a weight bar and compensator set, a pair of extra rear sights, a pair of extra front sights, and a speedloader.
