    Two - two Registered Magnums...maybe. Last one I saw for sale was $6500.

    The "lawyer lock" isn't going away. Maybe if S&W went out of business and sold its assets to another company ("The New Smith & Wesson Co."), kind of like Piper Aircraft did, then the lock might be discarded.

    Of course, that'd also mean that NS&W Co. wouldn't be doing warranty service on any of the current guns out there, but you pays your money and you makes your choice.

    You appear to be saying that as if there were quality warranty service to be had now.

    Every S&W revolver with the lock is an abomination, and needs to be cast back into the forging fires of Mordor, no matter how much the hobbitses like their crush fit precious. JMO.

    I shoot DA revolvers DA, so if the DA pull isn't good, why bother?
    The finish is nice, but the physical lines don't do it for me.

    Get in line.

    Sorry folks, I can't get over the barrel rib and grip shape. The blued finish is fantastic and I'm sure it's accurate, but I don't like the shape. If gifted one, I'd probably sell it and buy the nicest N-frame I could find and a case or two of ammo.

    Supposedly there are a couple thousand made and ready to ship. Don't know what it looks like, but supposed to have King Cobra like modern lockwork. SHOT should be the place to see.

    I'd bet a six pack that the new Python (if it does come to fruition) does NOT have a friggin hole in the side for some silly little key. Hell at least Ruger made them not be an issue or visible, you actually have to drill a hole in the grips to access it if it's even there. S&W is terminally pussy whipped if they ain't got the balls to make things right.
