Default Smith & Wesson 1st-3rd gen models explained in a simple chart

Not sure if this is listed here on the site, but this is a very cool looking and easy to understand reference for the layman that I found online...

1. Makes me want to collect the whole set!

2. Needs to have annotations to the features that changed.

Good. Now we all know what kind of firearm we own. No more threads asking what kind of gun we just bought.
