I really like this gun. When I bought my Berreta storm I tried to get the FNX in 9 ,none in stock. I really wanted one, they are great AND "made" right up the road from me. A friend of mines Dad built your gun. Maybe get one a little later because my wife WILL kill me if I tried it again so soon.

Can you explain. I'm not familiar with what you are referring to.

Does this just apply to snubs. I am thinking about a .38/.357 revolver, but probably in 4".

I seem to have developed a 'thing' for FN, this is my third FN - I have the BHP in 9, the FNS-40 and now this.

BTW, I bought the FNS on a lark, but like it a lot - the X looks good as well, I just thought a striker fired for variety. The .40 is a good bang, I imagine the 9 is pretty sweet as well with the lighter recoil. For some reason these FNS/X look really good to my eye.

I think he means a 'hammerless' pocket revolver, or a striker fired revolver - no visible hammer.

I know a guy with a .38 special on the floor, but to be honest, I'd hold out for a .357 so you can go both ways with ammo.

with smith and wesson revolvers the "no lock" refers to revolvers without the internal lock safety. the lock uses a "key" to turn a locking mechanism. it is located just above the cylinder release lever on the left side of the revolver.

as far as a 357/38 revolver. you haunt your local gun stores and local online private gun sale sites you'll find on. i've picked up two, a 27-2 and a 15-3, in the past two weeks from young guys that want something actually usable. one was his grandfathers duty pistol that had been handed down. i tried to talk him out of selling it standing in his living room.

everyone knows a revolver is all but worthless unless it's new and black. if you happen to run into anyone unaware of this...please tell them.

Yea, my must bang pistol is an ancient Detective Special - it's perfect for close contact shooting and HP's in a .38 Special will do the job.

Many folks discount the revolver, but they tend to be more reliable and the bigger ammo tends to remain available - my LGS has tons of .38 special in stock.

Age, provided it's fully functional, need not deter a buyer.

i couldn't agree more...i just don't want the word getting out.

i love an old smith. there is something about the craftsmanship and that deep high luster blue....it's almost black...that gets me.

and i'd just rather shoot a revolver. i've got a few decent plastic guns but throwing lead with them is just hoe hum compared to thumbing a nice target hammer back.

i did look at an old detective special in the lgs day before yesterday. beat up, worn down and EXPENSIVE.

Like the clerk who sold my noob buddy a Glock when he went in for a wheel gun.

I own quite a few guns, but my old Smiths are by far my favorites. I especially love my Smith Model 42, it is still my favorite carry gun. There is just something remarkable about the craftsmanship that doesn't exist in any of my black guns.

revolver cases at gun stores are just places to fill out paper work on real guns.


i roam around gun stores quite a bit. if there is a guy looking to buy and looking at several things, like he's not exactly sure what he wants, he won't even look at the revolver case. and gun store counter guy won't point him that way either.

if a guy just walks in, drifts past long enough to see whats there, he's the one you wanna beat to the current crop of trade ins.

those traded in old smiths and colts don't last long but they never leave with undecided guy. they leave with the guys that drop in week after week year after year just checking.
