    S&W Locks

    I had the good fortune recently to purchase a pre-locking S&W Model 60. The question occurs to me, however:

    Why are so many dead set against the locks?

    Do they break and freeze the trigger?

    Or is it simply rebelliousness against having a lock forced on you?

    Or is there something else?

    My wife has a Bersa .380 with a lock. We just set it to fire and leave the key in the box. Not a big deal as far as convienence is concerned.

    Just curious.

    Never argue with drunks or crazy people.

    There has been a few cases where the lock caused the gun to lock up. S&W said it was because of a weak loc spring and they have it under control. IMHO I don't want it on any gun that I am going to use for self defense. I have it on my M-21-4 .44cal Thunder Ranch. This a range gun only and I have never had any problems.

    It's all of the above. Their quality has gone down too. They seem more like clones of actual Smith & Wesson's former offerings than anything worthy of the prestige of the S&W logo. The best course of action is to get a Ruger if buying new.
