  • New S&W Revolver

    I like S&W revolvers and have owned a bunch over the years but this, not so much

    Dunno but the vent rib just looks cheesy

    As you know, I like wheelguns but that one doesn't do anything for me either.

        Looks overdone. The inflated cykinder and rib might have some benefit on the 500 and 460, — give you enough mass to cut recoil. — but just looks trashy on the 686.

          Maybe, possibly, with a full under lug, dump the science fiction cylinder latch, and in .44Spl or Magnum (I'd prefer the SPL). Otherwise, no. Ace2

            I’m at a loss leaving the cylinder unfluted for weight, then carving off half the barrel rib and underlug. Makes me all WTF, like lightening slots in a GLOCK slide. Makes me glad I bought my 686 in the ‘80s.

              One sort-of last thought: The front sight is interchangeable? Does that mean it will fall off at the wrong time per Murphy's law? I would bet yes.

                Are you aware of the Model 69? 5-shot L-frame 44 Magnum?



                Sorry for the hi-jack, ricco.

                  It's okay I was thinking about posting about the 986

                  I want that revolver

                    The 7-shot 9mm L-frame? At first, I was thinking it was an 8-shot N-frame, but that's the 929.

                      Yep, familiar with it. Not safe for me to have a .44Magnum, I might be tempted to shoot Magnum loads out of it; not good for my hands. I do like the looks of it, though.
                      I was lusting after one of the 5" Ruger .44Spl GP's, but have mostly gotten over that---for now. Hate to use the 'N' word, but really have no practical need for it. If I was able to do more pig hunting than just once a year, it would make more sense.

                      I'm old enough to remember when a S&W Model 69 was a compact 9mm pistol; still have mine from Back Then Doing That. Ace2

                        I don't think I even have any 44 mag ammo on hand and I enjoy my 629 Mountain Gun a lot. I'm not tempted. After all, a man's got to know his limitations.
