The Model 460XVR is so revolutionary that it required an entirely different designation...XVR, X-treme Velocity Revolver. Starting with their extra large frame, the Smith & Wesson engineers worked to deliver maximum velocity - over 2,300 feet per second - to reach the target faster than ever before. The 460XVR has interchangeable compensators to accommodate every load and includes a Hi-Viz front sight for accurate target acquisition. Plus, its "gain-twist" rifled barrel means superb long range accuracy (beyond 200 yards) with every shot. Only Smith & Wesson could deliver this much power, this much velocity, and this much accuracy in a precision, production revolver.
