  1. General Revolver Area
    Purchased a S&W Model 629 .44 Magnum off Gunbroker that was listed in "excellent condition" with no mention of ANYTHING wrong. My FFL received a DAMAGED model 629 (see photos). The side plate is bent (right over where the trigger pin should be), pry marks on the edge of the plate and scratches...
  2. New to Handguns Area
    First off. I never owned a handgun, but do own a few different rifles in different calibers and a shotgun. I'm looking to own a handgun which will be my 1st. I'm not into the revolvers. A friend of mine told me to look into the Smith and Wesson M&P9, Ruger SR9, Ruger P95 or the Smith & Wesson...

    I need some advice. I am currently in the process of getting my AZ CC permit. I have never owned a gun, I have never fired a semi-auto pistol, I have fired my father's .38 special revolver. I am not completely sure even if I want a revolver or semi-auto, but right now I am leaning toward...

    I am looking in to buying my first handgun. I like the S&W Sigma SW9VE 9mm which is inexpensive, but have been checking out the Hi-Point C9(which gets bashed on ALOT) because I was told it would be a good starter gun and SUPER inexpensive. I Just had a baby and I don't have as much spending...

  9. Smith & Wesson
    I'm going to be a first-time buyer of a Smith & Wesson, and I have tested/rented both the 9mm and the 40 cal and I have to say I'm quite impressed on the lack of recoil both of them have. My only concern is that I shot relatively well with the 9mm, but I've heard of incidents where the bullet...
  10. General Semi-Auto
    I just saw an ad for a S&W SD9 and it looks alot like the Sigma series except it comes with a standard rail, night sights, a rounded mag and a slighly revamped look. Is anybody familiar with these? HERE they are on the S&W site.
  11. Smith & Wesson
    I am looking at buying my first handgun. I was in out local gun store the other day and I came across this model 19. I was told it was late 70's. It had a wider hammer and a wider tricker which I was told it is harder to come by that. It was all black. It had a 4 or 5 inch barrel. It...
  12. Smith & Wesson
    I plan on buying a J frame soon for CC. My question is does the following models, 637, 638 & 642 have pinned front sights? I would like to upgrade the front sight to one with a tritium insert. If they are not pinned, would a gunsmith be able to put one on? I know some of the other S&W J...
  13. Smith & Wesson
    Has anyone else seen the youtube video of the hunter harvesting a 1,300 pound buffalo with a model 500? Go to youtube and type in: S&W 500 Magnum Buffalo to view the 18 second clip. This handgun absolutely plants the massive buffalo. Amazing, powerful and obvioiusly accurate handgun. Is...
  14. Smith & Wesson
    I just bought a new 9mm Sigma for Christmas. I have only fired 100 rounds through it and am very pleased with it... so far. After stripping and cleaning it, I have noticed that there is a very slight amount of lateral movement of the slide on the rails. To be honest, it may have been that way...
