Integral Compensator, Half-Lug Barrel

• Most Powerful Production Revolver in the World Today
• Massive .500 S&W Magnum® Cartridge with 2600 ft/lb. Muzzle Energy
• A Hunting Handgun For Any Game Animal Walking
• Recoil Tamed with Effective Muzzle Compensator
• Internal Lock

In 2003 the gunsmiths and engineers at Smith & Wesson wanted to deliver maximum power for serious handgun hunters. The power they sought required an entirely new frame, the massive "X-Frame™," and was the basis for the new Model S&W500™, the most powerful production revolver in the world.  This ushered in the era of the "big gun" and was only the beginning.   For ultimate power and velocity there's nothing even close to an X-Frame model handgun.

I'm somewhat disappointed that it took Buds Gunshop 8 days from the time I placed my order to the time my order was shipped. I was informed that since it comes from a different warehouse, shipping would take longer. All my other firearm orders have taken a lot less time to ship - BUT - this review is about the S&W 500 and not about Buds so I am adding to it's all-5-star rating by giving it my 5 stars. This revolver is a beast. Feels like I slammed the palm of my hand against a moving locomotive. I have read about people shooting this thing once or twice and then selling it because it's too powerful for them. Not me. I loaded up 400 grain powder coated bullets in front of a 32.5 grain charge of AA#9 powder and the beast just screamed. What a delight to shoot. Recoil is about the same as my Ruger SuperRedhawk 44 magnum but if you like being kicked like a Mule, you'll love this revolver. I cannot wait to head down to the range again. Please note that this is not a gun for novices. If you are not used to big caliber, large bore firearms, this gun is not for you. If you like shooting a 44 magnum with hot loads single-handedly, then the S&W 500 50 caliber is just the gun for you. Enjoy it!!

This is one large, quality pistol that is a crowd gatherer and attention getter at the range. You really know you have a pistol in your hand wih this one. It almost has to be a handloader's pistol as the cost of ammunition is HIGH. But, with cast handloads it can be anything from a mild plinker to a hand cannon....I have an Accurate Mould that casts a 728 grain bullet. With the appropriate powder it goes to the edge of how much you want to endure in a pistol shot. The quality is impeccable and it has a trigger that is as good as ones on my K-38's. The S&W .500 just makes you smile to hold it. I don't know how practical it is, but it sure is fun to own.

Quit reading reviews and wasting your time, this is the best gun you will ever own. I shoot this handgun very accurate at very long distance that you cant with most handguns. This gun looks good shoots good and is a gun that will catch everyones eyes and ears. Took it to the range everyone came down to look at it a few took pictures of it lol. I had wanted this gun for over a year im more then happy to finally have it. Buds was amazing as always. This makes the 4th gun ive bought from buds, cant beat their prices cant beat their quality. After using buds twice I decided I would never buy a gun anywhere else.

Had to send it back to S&W (2 times) because the cylinder was not advancing properly. Came back the second time from the S&W Performane Center shop and now functions perfectly. Turn around time from S&W was excellent, 2 weeks each time with no charge whatsoever. Much more handy than the 8 3/8" 500 and just as accurate.

First time user of Bud's services and they were superb! Took advantage of the layaway plan, paid if off, the gun shipped as soon as the payment cleared. I'm impressed and have every intention of buying more from Bud's!
The revolver arrived at my Dealer quickly and per Bud's instructions I examined it closely. The S&W .500 I received is clearly brand new and representative of Smith & Wesson's high quality standards. All controls worked properly, no missing parts, nothing loose, and it call came in a nice S&W blue plastic case.
More specific to the revolver it is NOT as large as I expected - or maybe I simply didn't know what to expect! It also doesn't feel "heavy" in the hand, yet it does feel well-balanced...this WILL be a good, accurate shooting gun!
After I ordered the gun I started having second thoughts about buying such a beast, and choosing the 6.5" barrel....after seeing and handling it in person I am thrilled that I made the jump and bought this particular model. I highly advise others who even THINK they are interested in the S&W .500 magnum to go for it, and I further HIGHLY recommend they go through Bud's to make the purchase! I AM telling all my friends to go to Bud's! And a sincere thanks to Bud's for "being here" for us!

I received my S&W 500 6.5 in very prompt time, Bud's service was magnificent, thanks Nick! The gun arrived clean and it's absolutely a work of art! I loooove my S&W 500! Lock up is solid as a rock, and the trigger is smooth as silk in both single action as well as double even with the naturally heavier pull weight. Sights were dead on at 25 yards and I have NO doubt it will always do it's job if I do mine! I've found a great variety of ammo for this monster that ranges from one comparable to a .45 ACP but about 200 more ft./lbs evergy,perfect for home defense without worrying about over-penetration, several light loaded to be just a bit more than a strong .44 Remington Magnum, and of course true Magnums that go up to about 2600 ft./lbs energy at the muzzle ranging from about a 350 grain bullet to the monster .700's!!! I've watched Hickok45 smash watermelons like you wouldn't believe and recently watched an elephant taken with this model handgun in Africa on the Sportsman Channel.... GREAT diversity and the ultimate magnum! Thanks Bud's and thank you Smith and Wesson!

I waited for this 500 6.5" for a long time on my wish list here at Bud's. When it came in I just happened to be online here when it appeared in stock. Grabbed the phone and I got thru on the first call, which was unusual as the volume of calls they have. Brad answered and using a credit card got it secured as it was the only one that came in and Brad said who knows when another one of the 500 series would appear. After it was paid for it went to shipping and I had it in two days at my FFL. What a fine gun made by Smith & Wesson, balanced and built like a tank. The firepower of it is massive, it has manageable recoil with 350 grain JHP ammo, but what a blast. When you get used to it after a few rounds it groups well at 50 yards. Be sure and bring something so you can have an intermission from it, as after 20 rounds your wrist and arm are ready for a break. This is where my .22 cal model 617's come in so I can have a break from its extreme power. The machining on the gun is superb, the fit and finish is excellent, the ammo is a bit pricey,but it sure is a beauty. And as for Bud's, I got the usual extremely fantastic service that I have had with everything I have bought from them, from my first purchase until this new 500, which was my 10th purchase. Price and customer service is tops, one of the best companies I have ever dealt with. I bought my last four or five guns dealing with Brad, and he is always ready and willing to answer any questions you might have and a really nice knowledgeable person to talk to, never in a hurry to rush you off the line to get to the next call. What a team, Smith & Wesson quality, and Bud's great customer service. The 500 is a masterpiece, an extremely potent and powerful massive handgun, if you have been considering ever getting one, do it. You will not be sorry you did, but be aware if you think the .44 magnum is pretty powerful handgun which it is, this makes the .44 seem small in comparison. If you can find one as they are few and far between, get one and you will enjoy shooting the largest caliber production handgun in the USA. I am looking to add a 4" to my collection so I will end up with both a 6.5" and a 4" .500. These will go well with my .460V 5" and my .460XVR 8 3/8" Smith & Wesson. As you can see Bud's has great service, as I keep coming back for more. I have a S&W 29-10 Blued Classic .44 on layaway right now as this is being written. This is another great service offered by Bud's, if you can't pay for things all at one time use the Layaway. Hope this review helps anyone stalled about making a purchase, go for it. Bud's and Smith & Wesson will make you glad you did!
