Default With the hottest loads...

I really like my 'L' frame but with the hottest loads I wouldn't mind having the .357 in an 'N' frame. In the 'L' frame even with the 6" barrel and full lug the hottest loads hurt just a mite.

I would like to know when the 1st L frames came out. I would like to know when they were available to the public in quantity over the counter.

Lock time is how long it takes from the trigger break until the round actually fires. Old muskets had a long 'lock time' because the slow hammer lighting the primer powder which then lit the main charge. Lock times have improved, but some designs are faster than others.
