    Dreamer ~ No "shrouded" S&W snubbies in .357 under 20oz or

    did i miss something?
    i do easily get cross-eyed so i'm hoping i passed by a 357
    shrouded frame revolver snubbie with a 2.5 or shorter barrel, got 2 B under 20oz
    The closest i've come across is a DAO or SA/DA small exposed hammer/a 340 or 360.
    Also the 649 is sort of close at 23oz, but a bit too heavy
    i'd like to see a model 438/638 in 357, 14 to 18oz, and under $650
    Cuz there is the .357 model 327 8shot for $1K,not shrouded, so take out 3 rds and i'll buy it for $600 pro series ...i don't want too much, do i, dreamer

    So how did you come to the conclusion that 20oz. was OK, but 23oz. was too heavy? I'm not trying to be a smart ass, but we sometimes give ourselves these unrealistic criteria that actually mean very little. I have a 7 shot 386 mountain light that weighs 18 oz empty. It can be harder to conceal and carry than a model 60 J-frame that weighs almost twice as much. In fact, I have leather & Kydex for that same 386 that vary more than 3oz. in weight.

    I am not passionate about revolvers, but I would like to have a pre-lock S&W 649 cal .357 with shrouded hammer and a 3” barrel . I guess I am a dreamer too


    BTW, I would definitely not like to shoot .357 from a 14 oz snubbie

    I want a very "lite" carry
    Like an M&P360 at 13.3oz empty
    And have that 357 ported
    Then see how bad it bites
    Nothing like options to turn a decision into a process
    Still tossing things around

    I bet that by porting you would loose FPS so you would be better off getting a 38 and not port the barrel.

    Mag-na port and Gemini both claim that not much velocity is lost. They claim this is just a tale that is told! I don't really know, but would like to!

    I guess you are right; in any case, it is your money

    I had a an airweight 442 J frame in 38 special. With +P ammo that thing was NO FUN to shoot at all. I am not a small guy at 210lbs and it was just plain sucky to shoot that thing.

    Shot a J-frame S&W .357 a couple months ago. Only used .38spl in it, but it was hell on my hands. And, I'm a big guy- 6'2, 300lbs and I absolutely hated it.
