This pistol speaks for itself - QUALITY !! Of all the guns I own, this pistol gets regular complements and ATTENTION. Super accurate for a big boy hole maker. Get it !! I had to send my first one back to Bud's because the cylinder would not advance (a S/W issue). NO ISSUES FROM BUD's ON THE REPLACEMENT WITH A NEVER OPENED NEW PISTOL. VERY RAPID TURN-AROUND AND ZERO HASSLE. Bud's price and service rocks.

Second purchase thru Bud's with no issues. The 500 is an impressive and awesome piece of handgun technology. It arrived dirty but not excessively so.....and although I have not shot it yet the lockup and single action trigger pull appear to be smooth and within my expectations. If you want the bigest and badest pistol on earth this is it hands down!!

First time using Buds I would have to say so far it has been a very good experience. As far a the Smith & Wesson 500 goes Amazing everything I expected it to be the FFL dealer I used was also a gunsmith so I asked him to look it over he said it was good to go. I would definitely recommend this product as well as using Buds

What can I say about this pistol, the 500 Smith and Weston is now one of the best revolvers I have. This is not a revolver for those who can't handle the recoil and is very loud but the power it puts out is incredible. The quality of the revolver and the power is a great backup gun for any kind of hunting expedition it has a sweet trigger pull its compact for me with the 4 inch barrel the kick is not too bad, I have shot it one handed and two handed but I have been shooting a 454 Casull for a long time and my 454 was my backup revolver in the field made by Freedom Arms and it has been a great revolver as well but it's time for an upgrade and this is definitely a great replacement for it. If you shot a 454 Casull double the recoil is what you'll feel, I got lucky from my first shot out of the box no adjustment, it was a bullseye at 25 yards. My second and third shot however I think because I was anticipating the recoil was not a bullseye but I am dialing in the sights. It is a very expensive gun to shoot but it's well worth the money paid and my hats off to Smith and Weston on the quality and built of this revolver it is definitely a bear pistol. Also I want to thank buds guns for the great price and speedy shipment of this revolver it is a great product at a great price.

This is the 3rd 500 magnum I have bought. This gun is a thrill to shoot. Very challenging and always exciting. Draws a lot of attention when it is out on the range or in the field. Top of the Line quality is a given with these X frame BOOMERS. I have yet to see anyone not get the BIGGEST grin on their face when they first lay eyes on them. Shooting one brings all the trepidation of a child pulling the trigger for the 1st time rushing right back, combined with an experienced shooters skills, there is a good time to be had on every outing. Fit and finish are spot on. The cylinder locks up smooth and tight. More than 325 grains needs a longer barrel than 4 inches. Perfect camp site bear gun. Thanks Buds for more than 16 easy gun sale transactions, not a single problem needing customer service to resolve.
