    It would have to be an entirely new frame sized between the J and the K (similar in size to a Colt D frame). If Smith can waste money on coming up with the Z frame, I think this would certainly be...

    Great posts in this thread.

    I would like to see Smith focus on practical carry and general purpose revolvers, up their QC, and finally take the leap and ditch the lock.

    In a nutshell the...

    I wholeheartedly agree. The apprehension about investing a new product is very understandable, but mid size seven shooters are here to stay. The 686 Plus has been on the market since 1996, and even...

    I would love to see the same thing OP. The short lived seven shot S.L. Variant was the best option, but those now command a king's ransom. Quality push style loaders for 7 shot L frames/8 Shot N...

    It's all personal preference. Mild 148 grain wadcutters and 158 grain semi wadcutters are great for recoil sensitive people. As someone that lives in a rural area, without brown bears, a warm 158...

    It is a D frame sized revolver, which is much handier. I would love to see a small frame six shooter from Smith or Ruger, but I am not holding my breath. The only thing i'm not liking about this new...

    That is great to hear. I am really glad that these new 870s worked out, especially after the bad experience y'all had with the Mossberg 590s. Thank you so much for starting this thread and sharing...

    OP have your department's range weeks concluded yet? I hope that everything worked out well, and that y'all are confident with the new shotguns going forward.

    Perhaps, but there are not many non-custom leather options for people that want real holsters.

    SPs and snubby D frames use the same holsters. The 856 frame is just slightly shorter (in length) than other D frame sized revolvers and that makes it a special snowflake. Hopefully, the market will...

    The main things holding me back are a lack of faith in the quality of current production revolvers, few factory configurations interest/suit me, and push style speedloaders (Comp I/II) are only...

    Congrats on living the dream. Plenty of wonderful places in Ole Virginny, outside of NoVa, where that is a reality as well. My sincere condolences to anyone that has to live in the imperial province...

    I'm loving these updates. The new ejector design seems promising, and it is nice to see that the new models are now drilled for an optic. Hopefully we will see rifle sights make a comeback soon, and...

    OP, have you had a chance to put the new Express shotguns though their paces and pattern them yet? I would also love to hear your opinion on the finish, as that was one of the biggest criticisms...

    I believe that I read Kimber would be offering a lightweight "K6xs" with an alloy frame.

    I have no idea why Colt has yet to offer a new version of a true alloy frame Cobra. Their decisions never...

    This is what I call the D frame class of revolvers (due to size similarities to the original Colt D frames). These are typically small frame revolvers that are slightly bigger than a J frame, yet are...

    Can anyone confirm/deny if the finish has been changed or upgraded?

    S&W really should give the Mountain Gun concept another try.

    As far as what they should have done, I would have liked to have seen the following.

    It's nice to see a new 3" Python. Hopefully one day we will see a 3" .38/.357 Diamondback, even if it means giving the King Cobra/King Cobra Target the Old Yeller treatment.

    I wholeheartedly agree with some of the earlier posters that extolled the virtues of the D frame sized revolver. They are only slightly bigger than a J frame/LCR, easier to carry than a medium frame...
