    While I've been cautioned against dry firing, I've dry fired most of my revolvers at least
    10,000 times with no ill effect.This centerfire only. Some .22 rimfires can peen the chamber
    area of the cyli...

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'd leave it alone.The finish shows considerable rust
    pitting, which, if polished out to give a decent re-blue job, will leave the gun a
    mush.Normally I'd re-blue ...

    Let me re-emphasize my experience concerning DA .357 Magnum revolvers. As I stated, I found the
    action of the Python "mushy" and the trigger return "slow." I am in no way saying the Python is
    an infer...

    I just got the new American Rifleman and S&W is releasing the Combat Magnum in 357 and 44 I

    length, and s...
