    Valuable information Bud. Thanks for posting it.
    That must be the very first Performance Center Recall ever.

    I am surprised also - any clues Bud as to the why?

    Some weakness, or unsafe aspect etc?

    I heard they had a few barrels split on a run of certain serial numbers. I read in a gun rag at a doctors office.

    Barrel problems as said above the link at smith says the same thing that barrel's are brittle i guess made by out side vender

    Which should be Lothar-Walther



    here is what it says

    Smith & Wesson’s Performance Center Model 460 Revolvers



    Description of The Hazard:

    Smith & Wesson has received four (4) reports of barrel failures involving its Performance Center Model 460 revolvers. These barrels were manufactured by an outside supplier. Our investigation has revealed that the quality of steel in some of these barrels did not meet the performance requirements for these firearms and may have contributed to failure of the barrel.



    You should stop using the revolver and return it immediately to Smith & Wesson so that your barrel can be inspected and replaced, if necessary.



    Description of The Product Involved:

    This recall applies to Performance Center Model 460 revolvers shipped by the Smith & Wesson Performance Center prior to September 18, 2006. This recall does NOT apply to Smith & Wesson standard production Model 460 revolvers. The affected revolvers can be identified by the following Serial Number Range:



    EBD0001 - EBD0524

    EBF0002 - EBF0251

    LHZ0000 - LHZ0511

    LLL0000 - LLL0702

    LRR0001 - LRR0552

    MMM0001 - MMM1809

    XMC0001 - XMC0109



    To determine if your firearm is part of this recall, please check your serial number which can be found on the yoke of your firearm as indicated below. Each Performance Center Model 460 will have the words “Performance Center” engraved on the barrel as indicated below:



    Remedy/Action to be Taken:



    When the revolver is returned to Smith & Wesson, we will inspect and test each barrel to verify that it meets specification. If the barrel fails to meet specification, a new one will be provided and installed for you free of charge.







    We have already begun the corrective action process on Performance Center Model 460 revolvers. To determine whether your revolver has been inspected, please do the following:




    Keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction;
    Open the cylinder and verify that the firearm is unloaded; and
    Look for a "punch dot" in the yoke opening, just above the serial number, as shown below.



    If this indicator is present, your revolver has already been inspected and no further action is required.



    Consumer Contact:

    Please contact Smith & Wesson directly at 1-800-331-0852 ext. 3800, or through our web site at www.smith-wesson.com to arrange for the return of your revolver. All work will be done free of charge.
