    7 Shot snubby?

    A friend was telling me that S&W has a very light weight 7 round snubby and my friend did not know what mod it was. Surely someone on here would know of this gun. I am interested in it as a BUG.
    I normally carry a 1911 and admit that I do not know too much abt the wheel gun so someone teach this old dawg a new trick.

    I am no expert myself, but I would think it would probably be a .22 cal. Any thing bigger than that would not be too light weight.

    Here's one with eight rounds of .357 Magnum:

    Here's one with seven rounds of .357 Magnum:
    Product: Model 386 Night Guard - .357MAG

    They probably have others as well. I guess it also depends upon your definition of "light-weight."

    I have seen the 8-shot S&W and they are rather bulky.

    I think I would probably prefer the 38sp over a 357..and seems a 8 round wheel gun would look like a lump of coal printing in my pocket...tnx for the info tho.

    Yes, and you would need Hee Haw overalls for pockets big enough to carry them.

    You can always keep it in the smart carry under that kilt... That image still makes me want to claw my eyes out, BTW...

    I've got a Taurus that's a 7-round .357 snubbie. I think the model number is 617. Great gun. Heavy, but doable for pocket carry. l love mine. The grip fits my hand, the weight helps with the recoil and it's accurate (for me). It looks almost overgrown, but it is very near the perfect carry gun (for me).

    I think Smith makes something similar; but in any event, there ARE such critters as 7-shot snubbies. I know, 'cause I gots me one.

    I held a 8 shot 357mag snub and it's really thick looking... I will stick to my J-frames.

    Looks like S&W has discontinued their .32 H&R magnum, I think that was a six shooter though?

    I'm surprised they haven't come up with something for the .327 Federal magnum round yet, maybe they're working on it. Could be interesting depending on ammo prices.

    Here's a link to the Ruger SP-101 in .327mag though, just something different to think about: Ruger SP101®*Double Action*Revolver (KSP-32731X) Specifications
