Product Description
smithwesson Smith & Wesson wanted to deliver maximum power for serious handgun hunters. The power they sought required an entirely new frame, the massive X-Frame, and was the basis for the Model 500, the most powerful production revolver in the world. This ushered in the era of the "big gun" and was only the beginning. What followed was a Model 500, strong enough for the biggest game, yet easy to carry. 8-3/8" barrel. Stainless steel finish.

Comments about Smith & Wesson Smith & Wesson Model 500 Handgun:

I first inquired about this gun about 2 years ago, while flipping through a gun magazine. I saw it as the biggest and the baddest of the 3 most popular large bore handguns, .454 Casull, .460 S&W, and the .500 S&W. I started off with a .454 casull, and it made my .44 mag look like a pip squeak. I loved this gun, but I wanted something with unsurpassed power. This is whe i chose the .500 S&W. I didnt care so much for the price, and neither did my wife. Its expensive, but you have to look at what your getting. The most powerful hangun on the planet. Yes, I know there may be custom jobs that are bigger, but for mass production, the .500 is the biggest. One problem, is ammo. I personally load all my ammo, but a lot of people dont, and finding a decent priced factory load for this gun is unheard of. When I first bought it, I picked up one box of shells to test, and I had to practically take out a second mortgage for a measily 20 rounds and these were the cheapest I could find. Not to mention they were lousy. They were loaded way too hot. To the point where the empty cases were stuck in the cylinder, and the seating depth was different for each bullet, and some were barely even crimped. Now, the gun itself is flawless. I put a 2 power weaver scope on it, and I use a 300 grn. Hornady flex-tip with 40.1 grns. of Lil' Gun. This gives me a little over 1800 FPS. At 100 yards, I shoot an average group of 1.25 inches, now I am steadily rested, and I used to shoot pistols at state and national levels. I love this gun for its accuracy, for its versatility, and I respect it for its power.

    Comments about Smith & Wesson Smith & Wesson Model 500 Handgun:

    ...Remake the movie "Dirty Harry" While you would'nt want to send a lot of rounds down rage at one time, it is a very powerful but comfortable shooter! I have fired many lighter caliber guns, with much heavier recoil! Extreemly accurate in experienced hands and yet controllable in the hands of a lesser experienced shooter.

    Comments about Smith & Wesson Smith & Wesson Model 500 Handgun:

    The 500 is everything S&W claims. Well constructed, a good looking gun. It is heavy but then it has to be to deliver that kind of firepower. The guys at the shooting range wanted to know if I expected to run into a Cape Buffalo on the range. First time out I was able to hand hold a 4" group at 50 yds.
