I know the owner of that one, he sent it back to S&W and dumped it upon it's return. The other I saw was a NC Dept of Corrections revolver that locked up during a string of fire. On the S&W board there are several incidents listed in threads. On a range gun, the internal lock is simply useless and annoying. On a carry gun, it could be way more than that. Why risk it? There are lots of fine pre lock revolvers out there until S&W starts offering a choice, of lock or not, as Glock has. YMMV. Regards 18DAI.
    I have been fortunate to not have any malfunctions in my Taurus locking system. I have both a revolver and semi-auto from Taurus with many thousand rounds through them both and no problems with eithers locking system.
    The only thing needed for evil to exist is for good men to stand by and do nothing!!!
