Default The model 66-3 F Comp PCP, (Performance Center Ported)

The F Comp is named such because Smith and Wessons factory designation for the stainless K frame is 'F frame'.
(Standard catalog 3rd. bottom pg. 170)

I traded a model 27-2 blue 6" for this, and would do it again.
I do like the 3" model 66s', maybe too much.
I'm working on a complete set ,and searching for the elusive 'Super K" .

As best as i can figure ,the PCP serial prefix stands for

'Performance Center ,Ported' mine is #157 of 300 supposedly made.

Here are the pictures.

Good luck to you in finding your grail gun,this certainly is one of mine.

Nice set of guns.

When shooting Magnum loads does the comp and the Magna Port, make a difference in the recoil?

If so which one do you like the best?

Allen, I have #088. I bought mine as a used gun. Mine also has PCP0141 on it. Bought mine in 1997. Right after I bought mine I seen another identical one at another gun shop. That one had a ivory diamound inset in the grip. I got this paper with mine. Mine and the other didnt have the uncle mike grip as shown on the paper. These were suppose to be made for lew horton, however I suspect most were sold from regular gunshops. Quite possibly it may be the ultimate gunmans gun! At least it has all the bells & whistles. Sure feels good in the hands. I need to get my trilijon sight charged up or whatever thay do to make it glow better.

Allen, You are killing me with that collection EVERY time I see it! Have a Ashland 3" 66-2 but could always use another 3" 66. Especially an F Comp like yours. Glad I paid the big sum of $275.00 for mine back in 85.

Mines wearing Ahrends Boot Grips and I polished it up a bit. My all time favorite S&W! Used to carry and shoot the heck out of it but now only feed it .38's and it will still outshoot most 4 and 6" revolvers
