  1. S&W Revolvers 1945 to Present
    Howdy folks, looking for some advice. I have a 5' 629, and usually shoot 44 specials at the range (though occasionally will mix a few magnum loads in there). I took it to the field this weekend, and loaded up with magnum loads, but couldn't close the cylinder. Since coming home I've checked...
  2. S&W - Gunsmithing
    I have a model 66-1 with slow timing and pondering the idea of replacing the hand. Mine is a 3 pin hand and I'm seeing many replacements that only have two pins. Since the purpose of the third pin is not obvious to me, I'm wondering if it is safe to replace with a two pin hand. The...

    Hi y'all. I have a Model 66 on layway at a local pawnshop, and I thought I'd ask a couple questions before I plunk down the rest of the cash. This isn't my first revolver (though it will be my first Smith), so I knew to check cylinder lockup and endshake, and those seem fine. I didn't have a...

    After I fired my .357 I pushed the button to open the cylinder but it wouldn't open. I think the extractor rod has extended or something because the locking bolt spring is sticking out what seems more than usual. I don't know what to do to get it open. I can push the button to open the cylinder...
