Ordered on Friday and it was at my FFL on Tuesday! Great job Buds on the fast shipping. Smooth transaction and best price around.
As for the gun...WOW!!!!!
Quality: well, it's a Smith...what else can I say. Very high quality.
Action: VERY smooth action.
Ttrigger: Unbellievable in SA. DA its heavy as expected, but for the purpose of this gun, totally acceptable.
Weight: it's the 10.5"...its HEAVY for sure. But when you fire it, that weight is an asset.
After firing a couple cinders of 45LC, it was suprising how little recoil there was. Moving up to the 454 Casull...Ha-Ha-Ha....That was no expected. Wow that gets your attention quick! Probably more so because it was an indoor range, but loud as can be and quite a flash. The XVR handeled it with no problem. After two cylinders though, the shooter was done. Not the gun, but the shooter. Did I mention there's a big flash and quite a bang? I haven't even tried the 460 mag yet...
Oh and yes, you do get everyone's attention at the range. Even the store manager came to the viewing area and watched. He was in the back and wanted to see what the big boomer was.
Overall, excellent gun, would buy it again for sure. With the 10.5" though, you will want to get some shooting sticks. After a short time, you really start to notice how beavy this thing really is.
