As Gator said- S&W uses the letters to designate frame sizes of THEIR guns. Ford refers to trucks as an F-150. F-250, F-350, so you cannot look at a Chevy or Dodge and say "That's an F-150". Similar, but applies pretty much to S&W only- but you might say that a Charter Arms Undercover is a J frame size.

And yeah, N frames are awesome- but ever held an I frame- like a Ladysmith? They were cool.

Ah, I see. It's a S&W thing. Okay.

Trez- it may be that size, or use their own letters to designate, but the letters were for S&Ws use- so technically, a Colt or Ruger is not a K or L or whatever.

Its 'cause the Medusa was made originally out of a S&W K frame, but they wernt strong enough so Mr. Phillips had stronger frames made.. There about identical, most of the internals out of S&W K/L frame will fit into the M47.. The factory grips are even marked "S&W K/L (Sq. Butt)"


(Just being a smart @$$... )

When I clean my revolver, I don't take it apart in any fashion other than removing the grips. Should I be taking the cylinder off when I clean it?

Not necessary each and every time, but depends on how much you shoot and how dirty the ammo is. I am speculating every couple thousand rounds or once per year minimum. Of course, if you ever suspect the "spinning wheel" does not want to "go round" freely then take it apart, clean and oil it.

But I think I was told I could ruin the timing of the cylinder if I took it off. My revolver gets waaay dirtier than either of my semi-autos. But I brush into the crevices with a toothbrush. She runs like a dream, never a hiccup.

When all else fails..............read the directions.

As in the Owner's Manual. Most modern double action revolvers do NOT need (and in most cases, do not appreciate) disassembly for routine cleaning.

That's what I thought but I keep reading threads where others have taken their revolvers apart. And we all know my success rate with taking my guns apart..........
