    Smith & Wesson releases more revolvers without the internal lock!

    Some people like the internal lock on Smith & Wesson revolvers, some are indifferent, and some despise them. This is not a thread to start a debate. This is just an FYI to those who would rather not have an internal lock.

    From the S&W Distributor RSR:

    SW103043FC S&W 43C 1.875" 22LR BL AL CENT NO IL


    SW103061FC S&W 340PD AIRLT SC 357 1.875" NO LCK


    SW103072FC S&W M&P340 1.875" 357 BLK SC NO LCK


    SW103351FC S&W 351C 1.875" 22WMR BL AL NO IL

    Now if they would just reintroduce a Model 25 sans lock.

    I wonder if this is for sales reasons or possibly lock issues?

    Well, a couple of years ago, they released the 442 and 642 in no-lock versions. I'm guessing that sales of the "No IL" versions of those models inspired them to make more offerings. I remember when they released those two without the lock, the word on the internet was that S&W was claiming that they found some pre-lock frames and needed to clear them out. Heck, I even called S&W twice and was told the same thing. I was still skeptical, though. Well, 2 years later, they are still selling them. As Mythbusters would say "Busted".

    I definitely prefer the guns without the lock.

    I just picked up an M&P 340 sans lock. Don't really care about the lock but this one sure does look better.
