Am I wrong?
Yes, the 315 Night guards do not have a blast shield the other NG's do have a blast shield

It's interesting the scandium J-frame .38 Specials have the blast shield, but the scandium K-frame .38 Specials don't. At least the M315 doesn't.

I looked on S&W web site for a Product Spec Sheet for the Model 315. They didn't have one, though they had them for some of the individual Night Guards. A spec sheet would definitively state the frame material.

Here's my 325 NG from 2008. I've removed the extended cylinder release since this pic. Had to get rid of the Pachmeyer grips because they sucked and replaced with the S&W. The trigger is great but it's not my EDC.

Here's my only scandium Smith - 329PD. It's my backpacking gun. I found my 3" 629 too heavy.

Nice picture.

I have two 242Ti's.

I don't think they have scandium frames. Just Aluminum like the 642s.

It would be nice had Smith made them with Scandium so they could have been 357 magnums.

This is my wrist buster. It has traveled many a mile in an IWB holster.



The symbol on the side plate is the Scandium atom with it's 21 protons orbiting the nucleus. The frame is not made of pure Scandium. It is mostly Aluminum with a minute amount of scandium added to make it stronger and more durable.

The holster is a Barsony. They are economical, well made holsters. I own a couple. And they have a nice web-site

Here's one you missed, and a good carry gun....



However, if you want small, but vicious recoil:



Then there are the lightweight tamer guns.....

Default Atomic logo meaning?

My 329 PD, 329 Night Guard, and 396 Night Guard, are all scandium alloy (per SW customer service); and all have the blast shield. Only the 329 PD has the atomic logo with 22 electrons..

My 342, 296, 396 Mountain Lite have no blast shield and per SW customer service, no scandium in spite of all having the 22 electron atomic logo on the right side of the frame.

All above have the titanium cylinder, except the Night Guards.

So what does the atomic logo really mean?

242's definitely have a Scandium frame.
