    New Wheel arrived

    Well she finally arrived (still no name decided on at this moment)

    She is a S&W Performance Center 629 modified heavily. The question is she accurate is not even funny.

    @ 25 yards form a rest, I had a ragged one hole group for 5 rds. This thing is ungodly tight. I took it to my gunsmith as I told im I had a purchase of a 629 in the works and what could he do to make it better.

    When he saw it, his mouth dropped. When he measured the trigger pull in SA it measured a hair under 1.5 lbs and it breaks like glass with NO CREEP whatsoever.

    I will admit the bbl weights out front will take some getting use to. I noticed a lil fatigue around the 120rd mark. They do tame the recoil a bit as second shot acquistion was pretty quick. Heck, even the case it came in is pimp. I picked up another 200 rds for a serious day at the range tomorrow.

    I figure this post is useless without some pics.

    AP,
    are you looking for a \'field'holster? Like for hunting that you can wear on the outside of your clothing? If so, make sure you get one that is adjustable for your shoulders and back depending on how much clothing (jackets, parkas, cold weather stuff) you are wearing.

    Or, are you looking for a \'concealed'rig? If so, a custom \'volver deserves a custom rig. Call Lou Alessi for a quote. If I can find a link for him, I\'ll get it to you.

    Dan

    Dan, I hadn\'t really given much thought to CCWing this wheel, but I will give Alessi a call and see what they can come up with. Thanks for the advice.

    Thanks Scott, Maggy is simply flawless, and ungodly smooth. Trigger breaks like glass. I need to take a pic with the hammer pulled back, the trigger pulls all the way back to the grip.
