I've been enjoying mine. That galco paddle holster is a little top heavy but comfortable.

Quite a handsome wheel gun. I shouldn't look at pictures such as these. I find myself thinking seriously of acquiring another handgun.

I've wanted one of the three inch Smiths since I handled a model 65 a buddy had when we were in the Marines. I always thought it was the perfect balence.



What front sight is that on yours?

DrMike, Take a look at the model 69 Combat magnum in a 5 shot .44. Darn tempting too!!!

XS sights[emoji14]. I have them on my 329 NG too. Really like them on these wheelguns. I also replaced that damn hammer lock with a plug.

Pretty hard to go wrong with a L frame Smith! Nice revolvers.

Plus, those purchases keep the stock flying high! :grin: American Outdoors (S&W) has proved to be good stock for those who had foresight to purchase it.

Ran some 125 grain loads through it. All I can say is HOT!!! Even in this size gun they were pretty stout. Had some 158 Speer Gold Dots that were milder. Both loads impacted within an inch of each other so it doesn't really matter much.
