Smith & Wesson M460XVR 163460 460SW 8.5 SS
[163460]
$1,102.00

Ok, first a magnet sticks to this stainless steel revolver which completely surprised me since I have never seen stainless steel a magnet will stick to. Second if you are looking for a solid metal pistol you must know that the trigger, hammer and sear are made from cast parts, which is completely ridiculous for a revolver that costs over a $1000 dollars. Also the most powerful ammo I can find is from Buffalo Bore and they don’t recommend using their 460 magnum ammo in an X-Frame revolver but recommend the BFR. When I first picked up the pistol the Hogue grip felt loose on the revolver unless you are really squeezing it hard, and although you can get a wood grip for it, I think the recoil would be more painful. I have read all over the net about the Hornady 200gr SST ammunition causing forcing cone pitting and flame cutting because of their light projectile and its recommend that only 300gr and heaver bullets be used which is fine with me since it is a powerful handgun that should be firing heavy powerful bullets in the fist place. And last but not least when you are pointing the X-Frame with its cast trigger, hammer and sear at a charging grizzly bear you must ask yourself one question “Do I feel lucky”.
