I keep hearing people saying how they hate to shoot this revolver. I hear them talk trash about how much it hurts to shoot. I've got news for you... if you're any kind of man with shooting experience, this is one of the biggest thrills you can get from firing a revolver. This is my 2nd favorite revolver. MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE REVOLVER IS MY MODEL 629 44 MAG. That's my baby, but the 500 holds a special place in my heart. I love this revolver and recommend it to any MAN who isn't recoil sensitive!

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.
