I've been a good boy this year and it's finally my birthday so today I got my reward: Smith 66-8.
I like it.
I hate to tell you this, but I already see one major flaw with your 66-8...
It's not mine.
Congratulations. Now shoot the heck out of it.
A 4" .357 is pretty much an ideal revolver.
I have been looking at these for some time. Very nice. They feature
lock up on the crane instead of the ejector rod and 2 piece 4.25" barrel.
This is a new design for S & W. I am jealous. Happy Birthday
Nice revolver! Happy Birthday!!!
Tougher than the old 66s, too.
So, Smith &Wesson finally copied Ruger's system. About time. I still think the GP-100 and SP-101 are built sturdier than the comparable Smiths. And I have owned several of both over the years.
Just give it time...
This was my impression in asking around while I was shopping and going down the home stretch, I was convinced I was getting the GP100. Then I asked a gunsmith. His response, "Both are good guns and equally reliable but the Smith will be easier to tune." Good enough for me. No buyer's remorse here.
