The Korth NXS eight-shot revolver isn’t exactly new, we’ve already covered the model following it, but the NXS is Korth’s first eight-shot wheelgun. While the NX series isn’t the most traditional-looking, it has numerous features compared to its predecessors. The NXS is chambered for .357 Magnum and cut to accept moon clips, and is also convertible to 9mm, with barrel length options of four or six inches.

Further features of the Korth NXS include a railed Picatinny top strap that incorporates a fully adjustable rear sight, with more Picatinny rail sections on the top and bottom of the lightened barrel shroud.
