There are some really fine revolvers in this thread.

Having grown up in Springfield Mass I'm kinda partial to Smith & Wesson.

I have some classic Smith Autos, but I also wanted a 'modern' S&W revolver.
My N Frame Performance Center 627-5  357 Magnum times 8.  Really nice gold bead iron sights and pre-threaded holes atop frame to mount a Scope or Red Dot.



Nice N Frame, Vinny!  I have a 627 pro with an additional cylinder converted to shoot 9x23, 38 super , 9mm etc and use it in USPSA and other matches.  Fun set up and I still have the original cylinder for 357/ 38s
Thanks Tanners,
I love the 8-shot N frames.
You have an excellent set-up for your 627 Pro, with two cylinders and an impressive range of ammo options . Great choice! 
And your other wheelies too.  -Vinny

Burley, those S&W 625's are or can be nice. For my 5" I can use ACP moon clips or else load the 45 Rimmed cases when I bother to use single stage press for rimmed cases.

Love some revolvers as well. Rugers are my prefered choice, but I admire the S&W ones as well. It is just so hard to learn all the S&W model numbers! Currently I only have one S&W, but I really like it. Next wheel gun to be added to the collection will be a SA Ruger. Thinking Black Hawk or Vaquero.

I have a safe full of wheel guns both newer and vintage. I particularly like the S&W 5 screw revolvers from the 1946 to 1980.   Here is a sampling of different brands and calibers and barrel length.

From left to right with the cartridge for comparison:
S&W 500, S&W 460XVR, Ruger Alaskan 454 casull, S&W 44 magnum, S&W 686 357 magnum, S&W 638 38 special


S&W 357 magnums and 38 special K & J frames. Models 60, 66, 15, and 19, and 649.


My grail revolver S&W Pre model 29 5 screw 4 " barrel with case. Shipped Nov 1956
1 of only 200 5 screw 4" 44 magnums to ship in 1956 the 1st year of production
