In 2003 the gunsmiths and engineers at Smith & Wesson wanted to deliver maximum power for serious handgun hunters. The power they sought required an entirely new frame, the massive “X-Frame™,” and was the basis for the new Model S&W500™, the most powerful production revolver in the world. This ushered in the era of the “big gun” and was only the beginning.
For ultimate power and velocity there’s nothing even close to an X-Frame model handgun.
So I have a Taurus Raging Judge that I can fire 300 grain casull rounds through all day. This revolver makes that one seem like a 9 mm. the first time I fired it was with 400 grain ammo at a jug of water and absolutely destroyed that jug. The compensator helps tremendously with upward motion upon firing. Just hold pretty tight and be ready for some stress on the wrist and lower palm when firing this monster as the kick motion is back as opposed to up! I love it!! I would buy it again.
Hands down with the scope it is one of the best handguns to hunt elk with by far couple years back took my nap to the back side of Mount Shasta took down to mule deer both Wayne 250 lb each smooth shooting weapon and for the price this year Ill take my wife.
I would buy it again, but only because I reload....
I was very pleased with the order and the way they handled it. Great price. Would recommend their co. And do business again myself.
WOW what an excellent piece of Craftsman ship.Fun to shoot and you had better hang on.
