Ordered it Sunday night and was shipped Monday morning. When I got it I took it out of the box and shot 100 rounds. Great trigger pull and sights were right on the money. I recommend this gun for cc even though it's a little larger than I'm used to carrying.
I'm rather impressed on one hand, and extremely upset on the other. Sportsmans Outdoor is incredibly fast on the shipping, WOW! Great service, good company.
The gun definitely feels great. But I had a series of major issues on this brand new pistol: I put about 50 rounds through it and field stripped it. Much to my surprise, it wouldn't reassemble. The takedown lever wouldn't lock up into place, and upon closer inspection, it was because the guide rod was noticeably bent! On top of this, the metal around the edge of the barrel crown started to chip. Only 50 rounds, folks!
I called S&W and mailed them images. They sent a return label and I sent it back to them. They said it would take about four weeks to repair it and send it back. I'm highly disappointed, and I hope that once this issue is resolved, it'll go back to being the fun and reliable pistol I think it is.
I bought 500 rds of this ammo to use with a new to me 1976 S&W 19-3 4 revolver. Took it out to the range and, wow! The combination of these rounds in this particular handgun is amazing. Very accurate ammo @ 7 and 15 yards. All the rounds I received are nickel and a mix of Winchester, Remington and Federal with a light mix of Peters, Western, CCI and Starline. The boxes are flimsy and a couple didnt make it in transit loose rounds floating inside the box but all the rounds were there and they appear to have been stored properly over the years. They didnt appear to be overly smokey I shot them outdoors and they aren't any more dirty than other ammo I have shot out of my fathers revolvers in the past. I'd recommend for the price!!
The service was outstanding. I ordered on a Sat and it was at my dealer's noon wed.
The fit and finish on this pistol is great. No machine marks, chips, color even, gun very tight. All good. I ran 300 rounds through it of different manus with a couple of profiles and weights including a 185gr HP. No jams, ftfs or anything and they hit center 2in high.
Not sure how they made this much gun for under $400 but it is worth a few hundred more than that.
It was between this weapon and the Ruger, and it was several years ago when purchased, they were both out of stock. Wound up special ordering it and driving several hours to pick it up, my wife complained we drove all this way for just this rifle. Well we stayed at a nice hotel in and had a nice dinner to make it up to her, and when I took it to the range I loved it, has never malfunctioned and has been stellar and accurate. Was the best road trip purchase ever and was well worth the time.
