As much as I love 1911/2011’s,
I’m currently exploring the
revolver rabbit hole.

This thread is dedicated to the Ultimate
Revolver...Specifically S&W N-Frames.

So... dig out them Magnum .357’s, 41’s .44’s and .45LC/ACP’s

Let’s make this a Wheel Gun thread
to drool over.

27-3 5” FBI 50 year Commemorative.

Some nice ‘N’ frames have been pictured but none seem to have been used for the pure joy of shooting the hell out of them.
over the past 50 years I have accumulated quite a number of them and all have been shot extensively.
Over the years I have gravitated to .45 Colt with .44 Special my second choice.
For years these two 5” Registered Magnums were my favorites and got holstered and carried in all weathers.
Now they are wearing their original grips but when carried the Nickel one wore Ropers and the blue one wore Bear Hugs.
Five inch barrels were found by me to be the most useful length for .357’s.
Before some one points out that the grips on the blue one are not original let me add that the gun went back to Smith and Wesson for a total rework in 1955 and included in the paperwork is the notation that,”As we do not refinish stocks the current manufacture ones have been installed and numbered to the revolver”.

rmac, all of those in my photo get regular range trips, the 629 gets carried on most weekends/time off when I’m in the mountains. I’m also one of those weirdos that enjoys cleaning my guns after they’re used. I like the look of a clean gun as much as a dirty one. Kinda like washing the road grime/snow off my truck.

In total agreement with you, use it and clean it. With proper care and maintenance little harm can be done to a S & W or any other gun.
What I don’t get is most of the newer shooters that seem to think they should give a gun little to no cleaning or care and then get on here and whine about dirty powder and bullets and what trashy ammo this is; “Look how it left my gun, I’ll never use that again” and so forth.
Your guns are testament to how they retain their looks with care and cleaning.
I have many guns that are two hundred years old that have been shot tens of thousand times that are in excellent original condition.
Pictured is a 121 year old rifle that I have carried on eight African trips and has has nothing except good care and proper cleaning.
What I always try to convey to newer shooters is not to think that use will diminish value but forget about value, use it, give it proper care and enjoy it.
