    Awesome revolver. Bud's was easy as pie to deal with. Great all round.

    Beautiful piece, with the best trigger I've ever shot on any gun, bar none. Ideal for home defence (no magazine springs to worry about, so can be left loaded all the time). Integral rail also lets me mount a standard light - another big plus for home defence. Too big for concealed carry, but eight rounds of 357 make it a decent tactical option. Bottom line for me tho' is that it's just fun to shoot and show at the range...

    I really like the gun but have had a couple of problems with it (after 2000 rounds, give or take). The gun shoots great and I find that I'm more accurate (at least currently) with a revolver than I am with a semi-automatic.

    1) the hammer spring screw backed out and gave me occational misfires. Removed the handle, tightened the screw with locktite.
    2) the rear sight adjustment screw doesn't work. It fits in a slot and it was pulling down on the rear of the sight, but the nut pulled through the tappered slot. I had to adjust the curvature of the sight manually and then locktite the screws. It is essentially non-adjustable but works fine. Everybody tells me that you should only use the firont sight anyway...
    3) the barrel came loose around 1000 rounds. All you have to do is shoot it hard, since the barrel is stainless steel and the housing is Scandium. The different thermal expansion coefficients guarentee that 357 Mag shooting will loosen it up eventually. I researched the proper gap and torque online and have had a tool made to tighten it up.

    I have not owned a stainless steel revolver, but I suspect that it wouldn't have most of these issues. I'm looking for a S&W 627 as a alternative, since it takes the same ammo and moon clips. But I don't intend to sell the gun.

    Bought it from Bud's! The gun shoots where you point it! Has an easy adjustable front sight for fiber optics or gold bead sights. 8-shot revolver with very manageable 357 recoil and non-existent 38 special recoil. No regrets on the $1,000.00 price tag. Came in 1 week after payment.

    Just got my new SW less then a month ago and it was misfiring one after another despite using exclusively factory ammunition. I called Buds and was told to call SW directly. Now my gun been shipped to SW.. Hope they will fix it.
