http://www.smith-wesson.com/misc/ilock.html Smith & Wesson customers will soon begin to see revolvers with a new feature, an internal lock designed to limit unauthorized use of the handgun. The new system features a locking mechanism that is built into the revolver. A small entry port for key insertion is located above the thumb piece on the left-hand side of the revolver. The key has a special configuration designed to maintain the firearm's security by significantly reducing the possibility of tampering. Turning the key approximately 90 degrees to the locked position blocks both the hammer and trigger, rendering the handgun inoperable. Exposed hammer guns have a lock status indicator that protrudes above the frame in the area of the hammer to indicate when the gun is locked. When the gun is locked, neither the hammer or trigger can be moved, but the cylinder of the revolver can be opened and closed to insure the revolver is unloaded. When not locked, no part of the lock mechanism is in contact with any of the firearm's working parts and therefore the lock does not change the feel or function of the Smith & Wesson revolver action.
