The .357 Magnum caliber was born at Smith & Wesson's in the 1930s, and its fate has been intertwined to the Smith & Wesson firearms ever since.

Despite having been used by so many legendary revolvers released during the years by other competitors (eg. the Colt Python), no other revolver has been more quintessential as a .357 Magnum than the Smith & Wesson Model 686.

Built to the specifications of Smith & Wesson Champion Jerry Miculek, the Model 929 is a high-tuned 8-shot 9mm revolver developed specifically to suit the needs of competitive shooting, as many shooters – particularly in Europe – are abandoning revolver specialties in IPSC shooting as they can hardly find a fitting tool for the trade.

Man Fined $1,000 for Saving Boy from Pit Bull Attack with Unregistered Gun

| Self-defense, Handguns | Author: Web admin


Officials have agreed not to file criminal charges against a Washington D.C. man who used his handgun to kill a pit bull in order to stop it from mauling a child.

Benjamin Srigley made an agreement with authorities last week which will require the 39-year-old to pay a $1,000 fine for the three unregistered firearms and ammunition that were found in his possession the day he saved Jayeon Smith from three unleashed pit bulls. During the attack, Srigley used his Ruger 9mm pistol to shoot at the animals that left Jayeon with scars on his elbow, torso and leg.

“In our recent memory this is a unique charge because of the unusual circumstances of this case,” said Ted Gest a spokesman for the office of the attorney general.

The Iver Johnson 1911A1 Carbine is a new rifle that appears to mate a 1911 pistol to a AR-style rifle.

It is chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge and looks like it retains all of the normal 1911 controls, grip safety and more.

The Revolver Camera: Oddity or oddly familiar?

| Abroad , Handguns, Gun Accessories | Author: Olga Guseinova

Pull the trigger. Snap a picture. The revolver camera is old, but not as odd as one might think. It may even seem weird and potentially even a little morbid. 

Theoretically, the shooter could capture a photo of the target at the moment of impact. But is this technology really as odd and antiquated as it appears, or simply a design a half-century ahead of its time?

Smith & Wesson 625JM: ‘A jewel of a revolver’

Smith & Wesson 625JMSmith & Wesson 625JM

During WWI the U.S. did not have enough Colt 1911 pistols to go around, so Smith & Wesson and Colt retooled their revolver production to fill the .45 ACP gap in the military’s arsenal. In turn both companies produced M1917 revolvers.

It was a viable solution at the time and while it may not be in high demand today — a revolver to fire semi-auto ammo — Smith & Wesson continues to make .45 ACP revolvers for their loyal fans.
