    Great revolver. Great trigger. The heat treated trigger looks shabby as hell for a $1,100 revolver though. Could use some polish from the factory but that\'s just a cosmetic gripe.

    My new favorite .357! Super nice shooter and no shooter's fatigue even after 600 rounds in one afternoon.

    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.

    First trip to the range I fired about 75 rounds of 357 mag. and the barrel shroud came loose on the gun. I wasn't very pleased to say the least. I sent the gun back to S&W they had it back to me in three weeks at no cost to me. Less than four months later I have a little over 1200 rounds of .357 mag. through the gun. I absolutely love this gun it balances well in my hands causing the sights to align near perfectly when I draw it from my holster. The gun is very accurate, I use the M&P R8 more often than my S&W 627 for my local ranges' USPSA and practical (IDPA style) matches. At first, I didn't think I would like the V notch sight, because I've shot square notched rear sights all my life, but with minimal practice I found the V notch just as easy to shoot as the square notch sights. I love the weight of the gun it is light weight for its' size and in my opinion the .357 mag recoil isn't very much more than the recoil I feel from shooting a 686 or my 627. This gun shoots 38 specials like a dream I can get back on target very quickly when I just want to shoot quickly for fun. Lastly I love the rails on the gun I have a surefire X400 on the bottom rail of the gun, because this is the gun that sits in my night stand while I'm sleeping and light and laser will make clearing my house easier. I have put a red dot on the top rail and it was fun shooting with it on but I just prefer to practice with iron sights it is nice to know you have to option though.
