What can really be said anew about the most powerful hand gun in the world that hasn't already been said? Apart from the mystique of the size, caliber of the round, or recoil associated with the round, this gun is just a really solidly built revolver. Smith & Wesson and the 500 Magnum is of a superior quality, and it holds true to the standards that S&W has upheld for a very long time. If you get this gun, it will hurt your hands, it will cost a good amount for ammo, and it may be hard to hide from the wife, but it will also give you one of the greatest conversational pieces and some of the most fun out of any weapon you'll buy. Put a rail and scope on it and go hog hunting, or just blow up some watermelons. It's worth every single penny of the $1k price tag.

Just got my 500.8 and 3/8 barrel. Little slow on shipping,but all else was good. This thing is a hoss. Been waiting for awhile to get one and finally decided to. I've only shot some hsm 350 grain through it. Recoil was not as bad as I thought it would be. This gun kicks straight back instead of up. It will get you a little bit between the thumb and index finger. A shooters glove would take care of that and you could shoot it all day long. If you could afford the ammo. The trigger in single action is awesome. Best trigger I ever felt in a revolver from the factory. I'll take it apart and polish it and maybe see what's out there for a thicker padded grip. But that's about it. Hope this helps.

The gun I waited 10 years for. Ever since I first saw this gun in 2003 I knew I had to have it but I didn't think it would be 10 years later but it was definitely worth the wait. First off, the recoil isn't bad at all but I've only shot magtech 325grfp and 400grfp and HSM 350grhp. Once I start reloading for this gun I'll have some hotter loads but with what I shot so far the recoil feels more like a hot load 44mag. My dads freedom arms 454 7 1/2" barrel kicks much harder but this 500 has a few things to help with recoil like the compensator, rubber grips help absorb some of the recoil, and the pure weight of this thing. As for accuracy I'm really impressed, at 50yds from a 5 shot group I had 3 shots touching with a total group 3/4" open sights from sandbags, with more practice I hope to get all 5 shots touching at 50yds, 1" group at 75yds, and 1.5" at 100yds. I definitely won't be getting rid of this gun.

The S&W 500 Magnum hand gun is an awesome gun at an awesome price. Uncommon to find this quality gun for less than $1000.00. I have tried it out and shoots with amazing accuracy for such a large gun. I have shot one before so knew that the recoil was not as bad as a lot of people like to let on. With a firm grip and stance, barely knocks you off target. The only body part that it hurts somewhat is the palm of your shoting hand and this not a big deal. With special instrucition even women with a small frame can shoot this gun without any worry about negative effect.
