Easily the best revolver I have ever owned and by far my favorite pistol to shoot. Thing is well constructed, built like a tank, eats all ammunition and just looks cool. SA is extremely light and breaks like glass, the DA is the smoothest I have ever felt in a revolver. Also make sure to shoot it more than you clean it, this thing looks good but it was made for business (Designed by S&W especially for the shield bearer on S.W.A.T. entry teams). This has taken it's place as my bedside/home defense sidearm with attached 750 lumen light and a vortex venom micro red dot. Turns heads at the range and just feels right. S&W knocked it out of the park with this one...which leads me to the next point.
If this thing is in stock get it! The performance center does not make regular batches/shipments of these and when they do they go fast so grab it when you see it. I finally found my beauty here at Hinterland Outfitters. Never ordered from them before but took the chance. Transaction was easy and shipped fast to my range for pickup. Also as a bonus they were the only ones with stock and were consistently cheaper than everyone elses' posted prices by $100-200. Get it and you will never look back.
