    What! It's not a Taurus?

    Congrats... I seriously don't miss carrying any of my autos at all. It might wear off someday, but not anytime soon I'm thinking.

    I have a Python and it's nice but have to believe that they are a bit overrated. I'm not sure a Python's single action trigger pull is superior to a Smith & Wesson that's been broken in and I dislike the Python's double action trigger but my trigger finger is long set, tuned for a Smith & Wesson trigger.
    How do I know what year it was produced? It's a -5 which is just before the internal lock but I believe it's right at the time they started adding a couple mim parts to their revolvers. Unless they are internal parts I can't see any on there. This thing is built like a tank! Oh and your comment is spot on about the trigger, I showed it to my uncle with the Python and he swears it has a trigger job. From what I have been told, it has been a safe queen for years and the trigger is stock. The single action is darn near set off by just thinking about it! LOL...

    Actually that is pretty funny! Even though I give Taurus a hard time I do hear good things about their revolvers and 1911's. As far as the Smith, I am known on this board for liking them and it's only natural that I would choose their revolver. I have this tin sign advertisement from S&W that hangs in my office, and I love starring at all the old models listed on it.

    I'm thinking the latest edition of the Supica/Nhahaas "Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson will have a section in back indexing serial number prefixes that might show yours. I'm off to holiday travels so am not near mine. We ought to look it up after the holidays.

    Don't know about MIM parts, only having a single S&W example that has them, but one neat thing about traditional Smith & Wesson revolvers is that they wear in, not out and can have astounding triggers without resorting to a "trigger job" just through a little steady use.

    Don't like MIM parts but have to admit that my Model 642-1 has also smoothed up with use.

    I agree, S&W is the standard at which all others are measured IMO. I have the S&W 638 and really like it a lot, but my wife wanted it as her HD goto piece, so I lost it the day I showed it to her.. But I'm pretty happy with my LCR as its replacement. I'll pick up another S&W in the near future to fill in for the 638, I'm thinking one in .357 Magnum would fill the bill pretty well.

    Again congrats and enjoy your new revolver.

    I sense a new awareness in these threads to get back to SOME dependence upon the revolver...either to carry one again, or to at least add one to the collection.
    I simply love my SP101...

    I saw the pics.....and THAT'S a revolver!!!!!!!!!! I've also sensed the resurgence of the revolver lately. Whether for CC, BUG, HD, woods gun, or just for fun there has been more interest and general popularity as of late. While they may never again enjoy the overall prominance they did in the past, there's just something special about them. I've been carrying several of mine a lot more lately. The six inch barrel version may be a little difficult to CC though (LoL). Let us know what you think after you take it out for a little exercise.


    Ret, I'm loving my SP101 as well. After reading some threads on MIM parts breakages (even in some glocks over on glocktalk), I have since discovered that the SP101 is one of the very few weapons currently being made that has NO (NONE, ZERO) MIM parts. Another reason to love it even more!!!

    Nice buy. I love the 686. Mine is the 2.5" 686+ version. I've never been overly concerned with capacity but must admit that 7th round is comforting.

    No I wont be CC'ing this bad ass. It will be a woods gun and used for OC when I am in the Cascade mountains, or if I feel like bopping around town. Got to love the west and our OC rights! When I go up to AK, I like a .44 because the native wildlife is kicked up a notch! There is nothing in WA that a hot loaded .357 can't handle or that I would be too concerned about.
