    S&W revolvers: J & K & N frame...harmony!

    Hey All,
    So I guess you could say that I have three choices in carry wheelguns right now....
    640 Pro in 357 or a 66 snub in 357 or a 625 in 45 ACP.....

    All three have their benefits and drawbacks, but one thing they all have in common is stainless steel goodness!

    Great collection! Probably hard to decide which to carry!

    Very nice grouping. All have their place.

    I'd like to add a 3 or 4 inch .44 or .45 N-Frame for concealed carry use, just to have a big-bore revolver option.

    Dear wheelyfun101: my round guns are similar to yours. A 3" 625, with tuned action, and a 2.5" 66. But my J frame is a 642, though I also have a Colt Third Issue Detective Special. There is also a 4" Performance Center 625 (similar to the Miculuk version). My 66 is one of the 100 or so that Wilson Combat offered for a year or so in the late 90's.

    I notice that your 66 has a bobbed hammer, and that your 640 has a wedge rear sight. Nice! If I ever get better at the art of electronic photography and web access, I'll post photos of my own.

    Good selection.
    My 640 Pro slot is being filled by a couple SP101's a 2.25 and a 3 Inch.
    I have a 3 Inch 66-2 S&W Custom Shop revolver, also with S&W Bobbed Hammer and it is factory DAO. Hard to beat for concealed carry. Heavy enough to shoot well, but not too heavy.
    I have a 3 Inch 625, that I had Ron Power put a 4 Inch barrel on for the moment. I use it a lot more in ESR and ICORE Limited Division, than I Concealed Carryed it. I have a 310 Night Guard (10mm / 40 S&W ) to fill in for it that is much lighter weight.

    I really like the 640 Pro. They carry well in a Pancake, as does the 2-1/2 Inch 66.

    Yes, bobbed hammer currently installed, but have a regular "tang" hammer on hand.
    Love the model 66 the most, as it fits my hand and shooting style perfectly. Smooooth trigger and just a mean bulldog of a carry weapon!

    I don't generally obtain firearms based on a certain "look" but the 2 1/2-inch Smith & Wesson Models 66 and 19 have a certain particularly bad and "b'iness-like" look about them that says "we ain't playin' around" so eloquently. They are an efficient way to carry and dispense .357 Magnum as required, enough to squelch any argument an assailant might have against one's personal safety.

    Nice Wheely. I don't know what I ever did without my 640.
