Can anyone tell me what S&W revolver Clint Eastwood is using in the semi recent movie "Blood Work"? He describes it as a .357 magnum. It looks like it has about a 2 1/2" BBL and is stainless.

The "Bloodwork" gun is an N frame 8 shot 357 with a 2 5/8" barrel. These were performance center guns along with a 657 (41 mag) and 629 (44 mag) all had the 2 5/8" barrels. I had two of them the 44 and 357.

To me it felt like holding and shooting blocks. Cool to look at but thats it IMO.

Thanks for the input!
In my opinion and admittidly without ever holding one, the S&W snub .45 ACP looks like a real "block"!

I have shot a couple of the short barreled 8 shot 357 S&W,s.

They actually shot pretty good. They seemed "blockier" than the 325 Night Guard I have.

I really like the Night Guard. I have carried it a lot in a Milt Sparks Summer Special that i use for a 4" 44 Mag.

The light weight of the Night Guard makes it a joy to carry, and in 45 ACP the recoil is very controlable.

Any Cylinder that holds more than six rounds is unnatural and an affront to God.

I am as "Traditional" as most... BUT IF I was a 357 Mag kind of guy, I would have a bunch of 8 shot S&W 357 Mags...

But I prefer a 6 shot 44 or 45...
