I'm looking for a plinker that is cheap to feed. I'm looking at a pre lock 3" model 317. She looks like a fun little plinker.

Nice pair of 317's. I'm waiting on this one. Well used but not abused. Just curious did you ever shoot the 3" one? That cylinder looks real clean.

That picture was right after I got it a couple years ago. Mine shoots good and the trigger is decent, just a little heavier pull that a mod 17.

I'm just mess'n with you. On this one I will change out the mainspring(hammer spring) to a 8 or 8.5lb. That should fix the hard da trigger pull.

Jim, that may indeed reduce the trigger pull, but it may also cause mis-fires.... I've never owned, but I have shot one of the first 317's.... all I can say is I'm not selling any of my K-22's to get one.... Hope you have better luck with yours than I had with the one that I shot....

Hi Drew
I agree it's not a K-22. To me it's a very light weight plinker. I can fix the hard trigger issues. If I get a lot of miss fires from light strikes. I can always go back to the factory spring weight. If worse comes to worse. I will send it back to S&W. For me it will just me a range toy and plinker. They are what they are.
Some guys love them some hate them. Time will tell I got a good one. With the light weight of the revolver. They take some getting used to the DA trigger pull. The ones I have shot all have been very accurate.
