Just from the pictures I've seen it definitely looks like a product of Freedom Group. Just look at the cylinder latch for example, it looks like a cheap MIM part.

I just hope they sell enough to put some pressure on S&W. I've always liked Smith revos. Of course, haven't had the money to buy any lately & sold all my pre-locks for doctor money. But both on the net and people I know personally say QC has gotten bad at Smith. Overlooked barrels, loose yokes, all kind of stuff. Even on Performance Center guns. All the guys I know with problems, Smith has made right under warranty. That's good, but a lot of these guns shouldn't have shipped. I'm hoping if companies like Colt, Kimber & others keep producing revels, S&W will step up.

I’m happy to see more wheelguns on the market.

3” barrel, fixed sights, interchangeable front sight......nice. I’ve always thought the 3” S&W 13/65 was the perfect carry revolver......this is Colt’s take on that same platform.

S&W has been making crap for a good while now. Good thing that there are so many old S&W’s floating around.

It looks good. Was the top strap always that beefy?

Glad to see Colt back in the game, but it looks like Ruger is making the frames.
