UGH, surely this is wrong! I suspect (HOPE) it's a misunderstanding, as it's already got a placeholder listed on Grab-A-Gun's website, and it's clearly listed on S&W's website.

It'll be the first factory-new S&W I've purchased in 30 years.

Unless something better hits the streets first.

I am on several notification lists. Was told by one dealer that average time from pictures on site to production was 8 months.

Hmmmm....not totally my experience. I have seen only one 3" 66, and that was years ago, when my kids were in High School, and I couldn't afford it. The Smiths I see now have been rode hard and put away wet, and co$t a mint! Might as well buy a new one.
I tried to order a 3" Ruger Security Six some years ago, but they must have had like 3, and they were gone before I got my order in.
The pixes of the new 66 look really good, and 3"-2.75"... not a lot of difference, I guess, seeing as my EDC ammo is the Speer 135 gr. Short Barrel, or Rem Golden Saber and they expand from very short barrels. I just may sell my 586 no dash to finance the purchase....no I won't!

IMNHO...wait a few months so they will get the new model gremlins worked out.

Lucky Gunner's website shows a high resolution photo of the M66-8 snub from the 2017 Shot Show.

http://www.luckygunner.com/lounge/sh...rs-everywhere/

Now, I would like to see what it looks like with a wood boot grip.
Like my Ahrends finger grove boot grip!
The only thing I would change is the front sight. Don't care for the red ramp types, or any other color. Fortunately, the sight is pinned.

Best,
Rick

Any idea when the new 66 will be available? I've been watching this forum since November 2016, and can't stop soaking up the info. Joined forum tonight to ask. Bought a 65-3 4 inch barrel in November and it needs a shorter friend.

Put money down on the 69 2.75" two days ago. Quoted a price of $769.00. Have and love the 4.2" 69. Can't wait to get the snubbie.
