Default Revolvers S&W "Should" have made??

Looking through the group I wondered what I would want if it had been produced. I yield to the superior knowledge if I missed one that exists?



N frame 22 magnum 12 shot target?


32 long in an N frame?


Was there a revolver that was almost made but dropped before production??


Just curious....

I always wondered why they didn't make a 5 shot K frame .44 special.

A 5" K Frame in .327 Federal would be nice. I have always thought an N Frame .22 would be cool too.

There were a few but not regular production: Model 29 with fixed sites and no ejector rod under lug ala Model 58.

I would love to have a model 658, a stainless steel 41 Magnum Military & Police. Another variation would have a shrouded ejector rod and be a stainless steel 41 Magnum Heavy Duty.

Another vote for a .327 Fed Mag revolver in a K-frame, with a 6" bbl that has many practical uses, instead of .32 cal (H&R mag and Fed Mag) J-frames that were relegated to mainly SD use.

In the 1896-1961 time frame this is posted in, I can't think of too many fantasy guns that would be smart with the calibers and metallurgy of the time. When the revolver was king, S&W did a pretty great job at keeping up with the market.

Unless it got turned in for a $50 gift card and was destroyed.

Along this line of reasoning, I'd like to see a 61010mm with fixed sights.

Two come to mind

A 3" 65 NL .... the Model 65 LadySmith without the "LadySmith". A revolver version of the 3913NL.

A 3" round butt 681.

I know of a Model 53 in .22 Hornet, because I shot it. It was in the early 1970's. I was carrying a Model 53 as a duty gun along with a Model 27 or a Model 29, depending which Sam Browne duty belt I put on. Smith & Wesson asked to to come in and try it. It was amazing, no shells stuck! For some reason, it never went further.

The threesome of the Beakert 22 lr, 22 mag and 32 long would have been great. Back in the day it would have had to be the 22 WRF, but still would be a cool trio.

The one I would suggest has already been proposed... the K frame 327. In fact, I’ve had one built (see Project 616) in stainless with a 4” barrel, but not everyone has the contacts and resources to do this for themselves.

I can’t understand why 32s of whatever length sold so slowly in the ‘50s through the ‘70s but are so popular now. Part is lack of ability I suppose, but a bigger reason may be the rise in popularity of reloading, making performance ammo more readily available. I fear the ship carrying new versions of S&W revolvers has left the dock and is headed for the horizon.

Agreed. I have a pair of Taurus .44s from the 1990s-early 2000s that are K-frame sized, fixed-sight 5-shot revolvers, the Model 431. I have a 2-1/2" in blue and a 3" in stainless. They fit in all of my K-frame holsters. Really good fit and finish, they're well-executed examples of what S&W should have made....

I would like to get a 6 shot N frame 44 mag length cylinder with .308 throats. Then ream it to use shortened, blown out 30-30 case at 36,000psi a slightly shortened 30 Herrett. Be interesting in .257 too.

Kind of a 25 or 30 jet

There was a custom Ruger BH set up like that for .30 Herrett Short (I forget what he actually called it.) He found a load that would not set back the bottleneck case and bind the cylinder, a hot number.

A custom S&W oddity was the "K 25"; using .22 Hornet brass blown out straight.

Maybe a K frame in 22 CCM, the old Cooper 22 magnum centerfire round.
