I'd sure like to get a 3" Model 66 one day. I have a Model 66 4", my first revolver, sure like it a lot. A 3" barrel is just the right size though. I got my wife a S&W Lady Smith 65LS. It has a shrouded 3" barrel. A fine piece.SgtB said:S&W model 66 with 3 inch barrel. This barrel length was rare until recently. I think the 3 inch barrel is the perfect compromise in concealment and performance. I would not trade this gun for anything.

$800 a box, that ain't nothing! Sorry, I couldn't resist.diamondmike said:The 32 Long was the first gun the Columbus Ohio Police ever used.
I have a Harrington and Richardson rev. with a 21/2 inch barrel, I have had it for years, the last time I bought any 32 Long ammo it costed like $1200 for remington, they also have a 32 short that can be fired from the 32 Long.
I would like to know more on how a revolver went full auto. Was it because of some arcane inner workings of the new frame size? Or did the recoil cause the trigger to rotate the cylinder via inertia? I have held the same gun with an unmodified barrel and it is huge! I can believe almost anything with that monster.flyandscuba said:Just came back from the S&W Performance Center -- to correct a nasty habit it had of two round bursts from a single pull of the trigger...but that's a different story (I can proudly say I'm the first to fire the 500 S&W Magnum in "full auto" mode... :shock: )
