The Smith & Wesson Model 60 is the world's first stainless steel revolver and was a success from its introduction in 1965. Praised by both law enforcement and sportsmen, the Model 60 was a stainless steel version of the Chiefs special and began the era of stainless steel handgun production. It has a 2.125" or 3" barrel length. The Model 60 is the perfect choice for those seeking a small frame, all-steel revolver with greater recoil control and proven performance.

In the last six months, I've fired almost 2500 rounds through my model 60.
Over 300 rounds were 158 grain .357 magnum.
My little revolver continues to function flawlessly.
Even with magnum loads, recoil remains manageable.
If I concentrate, I can get 2 inch groups at 10, sometimes 15 yards.
The three inch barrel has a sight radius that's much easier to master than those seen on standard snub noses.
Plus, the model 60 is fun to shoot, unlike a lot of those hand-hurting revolvers with aluminum frames.
And it's incredibly versatile. Sure, it won't stop a charging grizzly, but it will do damn near everything else.
It's good for concealed carry, plinking, range practice, plus outdoor protection around wolfs, coyotes and other similar size predators. You can even use it in competition if you're willing to try something a bit unconventional.
True, the model 60 lacks the capacity of a semi auto.
But so what?
This gun is a classic. It's an all steel heirloom quality revolver that even your offspring will enjoy.
Get one. You won't be disappointed and your kids will thank you someday.
