WTS: Smith & Wesson Magnum Revolvers

Firearms are unaltered with factory springs. They have superb double actions, which is how I always shoot a revolver, and they do have the typical breaking glass single action for those who shoot them so.

I belonged to a club with a really good Plate Rack. I shot the Plates with these guns using Cowboy loads in Magnum brass.

I moved away from the range with the rack, and have not shot these guns in several years.

A (very) long time ago, I was the European Military Pistol Champion, and they shoot as well as I can. They shoot cast bullets very well. I load them to about 900 fps. I can throw in some brass if you send a little extra for shipping.

Less than 5000 through the 357, probably half that through the 44. Cowboy loads in Magnum brass. 3.5 gr Titegroup in the 357, 5 gr in the 44. Less than 100 rounds of Magnum ammo through either gun. Timing is flawless, and unchanged from the day they were bought new.

The new "N" frame and the "L" frame both have the heavy duty ratchet.

The Custom Shop 14-6 Full lug above? This was my main Plate gun. It has over 100,000 rounds through it, and still looks and feels new, but very smooth. 3.2 gr Titegroup and the 125 gr Cowboy bullet does not wear a gun. None of them have ever been in a holster.

$575 each, or $1100 the pair shipped.

If I get my friend to sell them for me, the price goes WAY up! LOL

Ouch.

I have only seen four of those in my life, and have owned three of them. I have two now, and if I sell one, it will go high.

I've never seen one in-person, but I missed out on buying one for $300 on the Oklahoma shooters forum a few weeks ago--the guy only wanted to deal face-to-face. It was even topped with an Ultradot, too! Bummer!

I'm just getting into Bullseye, and I prefer revolvers, so I've been looking around for a S&W model 14-6, with the full-barrel underlug and factory drilled and tapped frame...

I've also been looking for a S&W 625, 5", in .45ACP...no luck yet.

In my never to be humble opinion, the 625 and the 14-6 are among the best shooting revolvers Smith has ever made.

The M-16 full lug with the 6" barrel in target configuration in 32 Mag would outshoot any other revolver made, but will not put a plate down, unless you red line it with jacketed bullets. I had one, but lost it while moving to town. I had guns at the new house before I got my gun safe and alarm installed.

NEVER AGAIN.

So that 14-6 isn't for sale, then.

Oh well; I'll keep looking. I can shoot Centerfire with my 4" S&W Model 10-6 heavy-barrel--the thing is uncannily accurate with factory 130gr Remington and Winchester target loads. Just gotta remember to use a center-hold.

Cheers!
