    I totally understand your position but, many folks felt the same about Chevy, Ford, ..blah, blah. Now Toyota, Nissan and Honda are running all over em, with a better product too.

    Times change. Product loyalty? Well, that’s a different story.

    Yes when it became evident that the Auto industry was going down I did switch to foreign cars but where is there a company that makes a better revolver than S&W. Yes there are cheaper ones but none as good. Ruger makes a good product but I feel that S&W is better. Colt is out of the revolver market and did make a good product. I have owned several in the past Put I still think that the S&W was and is better. The Taurus , Rossi and Charter Arms may be cheaper but I have never seen one better than a S&W. Jim

    I agree with you Jimg11. S&W has a very fine product and been at it a long time. I have a Colt and I wish they still made revolvers as they was a very fine gun. I buy Rugers also but they go straight to the smith for a trigger job and then they are a good gun. Their single action guns are the best out there. These three are the only ones I'll ever own.

    Haymaker -

    Get the S&W 686 in a 2 1/2 " barrel or 4" for a duty gun. It was or is one of the best revolvers that S&W ever made.

    If you find a no dash or dash -1 ....make sure the Hammer nose bushing has been replaced by the factory. There was a defect [ too large of a hole for the firing pin ] in these earlier models. S&W will correct this problem for free, including shipping in most cases. Firing .357 mag. loads in this gun without the replacement........sometimes allowed the primer casing to be forced into the bushing hole.

    Still the best revolver I have ever fired !

    Talking S&W Model 19 2 1/2"

    I really like the model 19 S&Ws

    This is one with custom stocks, bobbed hammer, and a really smooth action.

    What a great group here at the forum. On some boards if you mention S&W these days you get flamed by guys that go on a rant about the hole in the gun. I think they're fine guns and just don't let the hole bother me. Now Ruger's warning on the barrel - that bothers me.
