    New Smith & Wesson M&P Revolvers

    Has anyone seen or held the S&W Model M&P360 Revolver - Chiefs Special or the S&W Model M&P340 Revolver - Centennial ??

    I have always been an auto guy, but I really like the way these guns look on the S&W website. I am having trouble finding them or a price on them anywhere though. I WANT ONE!

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    You may want to read the article on the 340PD, over on The Gun Zone. Interesting read. If the new crop of Saf-T Hammer & Wesson, have internal locks, I'll pass......again. YMMV. Regards 18DAI.

    I'm interested in the M&P 340. With the X/S sights and new "U" groove rear sight, it seems like a real winner. Also, it has the stainless cylinder so lead bullets can be fired unlike the titanium cylinder in the 340PD. Adds about 1.3 oz only.

    Six i havnt checked with my local smith rep , but at first blush i would say sights make the diff .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    I've got one on order!!! Two weeks to delivery!

    S&W M&P 340 same as 340PD, except for stainless steel cylinder (adds 1.3 oz) and X/S front sight with large grooved rear (U groove).

    New cylinder will allow you to fire lead bullets, unlike titanium cylinder on 340PD.

    I thought lead was not recommended in titanium revolvers because of bullets becoming unseated from the crimp due to the light weight of the revolver and the excessive recoil, not because of the barrel material?
    If we treat every gun as if it was loaded, then why not treat every individual as if they are armed.

    I am interested in these, I "need" a new J frame. I am a little bit afraid of the price tag, and I really dont care what sights are on it.

    That $830 is S&W SRP. I've seen the M&P 340 for $620 and $640 respectively. I've got one ordered at $630 plus tax.

    I'm not a revolver guy (yet) but I do like the looks of the full size M&P. 8 round .357 ain't bad either.

    I believe it is the finish, plus it has a rail on the bottom (and they've got it pictured with a red-dot scope mounted on the top) that makes it an M&P. MSRP on the full size is $1264. As said before, kinda spendy.

    I was going to attach the new S&W catalog (the first section with all the M&P's) so ya'll can see for yourselves. Here a link to download instead:

    Here is the link to the site for the rest of the catalog:

    Enjoy!

    I have a pre-lock 642 that I was thinking about swapping in on the J-frame type, but at six "C" notes plus for the 340, think I'll hold on to old reliable.
