    Handled one a few times...appears to be typical Smith and Wesson quality. Very lightweight. Does have the disadvantage(?) of using moon clips. Some like them some do not. Looks to be a very nice rendering of a .45 ACP revolver.

    Nice gun!

    Always wanted to have a S&W 45acp in my collection for just target shooting not so much for carry. Just havnt got around to getting serious on the purchase.

    If you prefer revolver carry, there is none better. I'm coveting a 329PD (for use with .44 Spls.) as these Scandium/Titanium guns are unbelieveably light. Just remember though, that lightweight translates into heavier recoil and even the .45 ACP can be snappy.

    As for moon clips - very fast reload, a little awkward to carry. If they aren't your cup of tea, you can always use .45 Auto Rim. The current 325 iteration is the Night Guard, but these use a stainless, rather than titanium, cylinder, adding to the weight. They also have fixed sights with the XS Big Dot front sight. This sight arrangement is available from Cylinder & Slide if you want to change the PD to the NG configuration. My friend did that with his 329PD - except he went with a straight patridge front sight. Great gun - good luck in your quest.

    Adios,
