Why the functioning feels more precise, the trigger pulls smoother … fresh from the factory … than in other revolvers?

It's because the 60 or so parts, already machined to tolerances as fine as 0.0001", are put togetger and fine-tuned in the skilled hands of Smith & Wesson's fitters.

These "machines" are hard to come by. But they're what makes a Smith & Wesson a Smith & Wesson.

Meanwhile we're adding to our plant (and hands) as fast as we to make more of our guns available.

Would you want your handgun made any other way?
