First: Buds did an excellent job, as always. Shipped fast and was a very simple process.
Now the TRR8: I was very disappointed. Out of the box, I was never able to clear a whole cylinder without experiencing at least 2 light strikes. This was in double & single action with multiple different loads in .357 and .38 special.
After some reading on the internet, I thought maybe the strain screw was loose (found multiple cases of this from multiple purchasers). After pulling off the grip, I found the screw all the way in, as it should be.
I called Smith & Wesson and have shipped the gun back to them to fix. I know they are a good company, however for a Performance Center product to be having these type of issues...it\'s disappointing.
Aside from the multitude of (frustrating) light strikes, the gun is awesome. It\'s accurate, heavy enough (though not too heavy), and the double action pull is on par with any comparable Smith.
