    Factory Repair

    I have a 65-3 that has a couple of issues and am considering options for repair. Has anyone recent experience with sending a revolver to S&W for repair and has the process been a good one. Also, I've never shipped a revolver before and was wondering about the intricacies involved with shipment.

    as Bob says, that is one of your options, and usually the best way to go, BUT we have to ask, did you have someone look at your issues? another gun person or even a gunsmith? shipping can get and is costly and if it can be addressed locally, all the better...we like to see folks save time & money.
    Having been 'in the business' of service & repair often can make a quick, adjustment...still do this all too often now at the gun shows being we are 'retired'.........

    I have nothing but praise for the S&W service center. I had them refinish my K-22 and a full thru & thru. The K-22 probably shoots better now than it ever did before. Turn around time was pretty good too.
    Trigger work is perfect and it breaks like glass. The finish is perfect.

    Doesn't get any better then the repair center in my opinion
    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!
    .45 ACP, Because shooting twice is just plain silly!

    Re: Factory Repair

    Sorry about not replying sooner, I sent it in on the 12th. For some reason, I have not had good luck with repair of revolvers, but can usually do well with semi-auto pistols and rifles. I shipped it UPS and the price for next day air was over $70. checked the chart, and delivery 1 day later (or less) was $24. I don't know any local smiths, and thought maybe the factory prices would be a bit better. I picked up a nice 5946 to stand in for it while it is in repair, but there is nothing like a well made revolver.

    I got the estimate on the repair on Friday. It looks like around $100.00 with the round trip shipping. Now to call in the authorization after the shutdown.
