    Another stop at the Gun Shop

    I was out and about on Thursday and of course had to stop at the LGS. I checked out an M-442, and then spotted something I hadn't seen in the showcase before. It was a model -60 pro edition with a 3 inch barrel. I had the guy hand it to me for closer inspection a proceeded to touch her all over. I have heard many on here state that the 3 inch M-60 is a near perfect firearm, and after an extensive fondling session I might have to agree with that as best as I can shy of shooting the thing. The price was not to bad for a Pro edition with nice wood grips and a tritium insert in the front sight. They were asking $649.99. The only thing I didn't like was the way the under lug is machined at an angle at the end instead of being a full under lug. It looks like I will be on the search for a non pro version. Here is a picture of what I was looking at

    What could you possibly be waiting for? IMHO a 3" Model 60 is the ideal .357.

    A couple of months back the LGS here had the regular M60 3" for $625.00. I fondled it a few time but never made a move, basically because buying about 6 guns within a year is 5 more than my wife thinks I need. Now she's gone, the gun, not the wife, some other guy moved in and snatched her away. If the shop got the pro M60 in I think the temptation would be too much to overcome. Looked at it online and that is so sweet.

    j,

    That M-60 slab-side is a real beauty, and, as Rooster Cogburn would say, "Very easy on the eye!"

    A note from my left temporal lobe, a personal shooting history folder marked "memorable":
    ...'You may wish to remember to approach "full-tilt-boogy-357-land", in a completely heads-up mode!!!'

    The more I look at the pictures of this gun, the more I am getting over not caring for the angle on the under lug. I do like the flat barrel sides and looks of the wood grip. I may have to take a ride on Monday to ensure I remembered the price correctly. How are these 3 inch M-60's as far as recoil with magnum ammo? I have a 2.25 inch barreled SP101 and shooting magnums out of it is getting pretty close to my max recoil tolerance. The 3 inch M-60 is just a hair over 23 ounces according to the S&W web site.

    I have a 3" in another brand & magnums aren't too bad recoil wise. Not the kind of thing I prefer to shoot all day, even with rubber grips. But I don't think it'll be as bad as a 2½" .357.
    As for the M-60. I just couldn't get past the angled under lug. When I looked at the $650 price tag I decided to let it at lgs. Guess the other 'regulars' felt the same way, it's still there.

    Yep, the angled under lug is the thing holding me back on this one. Everything else is about perfect.
