Smith & Wesson 610

629 and 617. Both prelock models.

If you want a S&W revolver, only buy prelocks. Better value.

I may have the oldest of the thread! Model 1879 'Cannon barrel' Reichsrevolver. Made in 1882 at the Oberndorf (would in a few years become Mauser) factory.

Dan Wesson (palmer) .445 SuperMag, possibly an AGS prototype. Serial number 000001. I bought it unfired. Let's just say it's no longer in that same condition

I have 3 other DW's, A 15, a 15-2, and a 44. I'm always on the lookout for another SuperMag

Here is my 2" Smith Model 10. I really like this gun for some reason and carry it a lot. Sometimes I feel stupid carrying a six shooter in a hi-cap world.



I got this Model 65 the hard way. Inherited it. It has seen some action.



I carry this 640 in my pocket every day at work. It is all steel but is not too heavy. It is a lot easier to hit with than an Airweight.



This Model 66 is probably my favorite. It is too good to shoot somebody with so I just use it for fishing and stuff.

Great pic dude.

My first cat was named Tiger when I was 8 yrs. old in the 3rd grade –– 1965.

He was a kick ass tomcat and lived long enough to purr for my newborn son in 1978.

Recoil is.....stout

i'm getting about 1350fps with a 300gr hornady XTP from a 4" barrel. I need to load up some more. I still have a little room to push it faster. I just got in 100 more pieces of brass, so it's time to load up some thumpers!

I have a shit eating grin every time I pull the trigger.

I really, really want to shoot it at night.

Word of caution: It gets a wee bit noisy, especially indoors and at covered shooting ports with low roofs.

My first revolver... she's a little rough around the edges as far as the finish goes, but she's a straight shooter with a perfect trigger and lock-up. Model 19-4 purchased second hand at Gander Mountain last fall for a decent price. Came with the target trigger and hammer.

Details?


The No. 2 Mk. I Revolver is a top-break revolver, like the Webley series of revolvers. It looks externally very much like a Webley, but has different internal features. The No. 2 was the standard sidearm of the British Commonwealth during WWII, though there were many other pistols used (Webleys in both .38/200 and .455, S&W Victories, Inglis-made Hi Powers, etc). The .38/200 round (case dimensions basically identical to .38S&W, but the bullet weight and powder charge differed) is anemic at best and one wonders how it ever got accepted as a military cartridge.

The No. 2 Mk. I originally had a full hammer and could be fired in both single-action and double-action; later revolvers had the hammer bobbed and were DA only, these revolvers have the designation Mk. I*. Most older revolvers were converted to this pattern when they came in for service, but mine was made as a Mk. I*.
