The cyl. did stay in one piece, and the barrel,too. S&W, after about 8 weeks informed me I will be getting a new gun. Hope they'll give me some idea of what went wrong.

Update on broken J-frame

Received a brief email from Smith & Wesson. They are replacing the gun. But they cannot say when just yet because of manufacturing backlog. Thank you, S&W. :)

More pics

The ammo was 158 gr JSP. I've shot mostly .38 special and +P. The .357 rounds sting a little! Total number of rounds over the years, not sure. This was mainly CCW and I shoot my autoloaders mostly. I...

Everything felt normal as each round went off. And I am pleasantly surprised I still have all 10 fingers. In fact I didn't get a scratch.

Both S&W and PMC will get pics and details.

Thanks...
