back in 1973. Had to have a front sight fully3/4" above the top of the barrel. Big deal, 250 gr Jhp and 10 grs of Unique. :) Probably a whole 1050 fps. Monstrosity, so I traded it on an M18 .22. Had M60, 2" .22 Kit Gun, 4" M19, wore all 4 of them loose in one year, so I dumped the revolver Idea, basically. Never did get as good as I was with the 1911, or even close.

I did have about a year of playing with .38 Chief as a pocket gun, in 1983, but the times on the target, the results on animals, the big lump in my pocket, the superior performance of the locked breech 380 soon saw the revolver sent where it belonged, to some plinker who didn't know any better.

Anybody who sits in his lonely room and mindlessly snaps revolvers over and over for months is going to ruin a lot of guns. BTW the K38 sight conversion was pretty neat. You were dumb to get rid of it but you wouldn't know quality if it bit you.

When used within its limitations a revolver is still a viable defensive handun. A man with a loaded revolver still has at least 6 opportunities to end your life, especially if your chopped "wondergun" firing its "uber" bullets fails due to ham fisted butchering by someone with minimal gunsmithing experience.

I believe the Model 60 came out in the early or mid 1960's; could be wrong on that.


edit:

SMITH & WESSON MODEL 60

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Country Of Origin: USA
Designation: Revolver
Cartridge: 38 S&W Spl
Production Date: 1965



Assuming the source is correct, it was introduced in 1965. (www.nasog.org)

I could be wrong on that. However the popular Los Angeles area gunshop I worked in couldn't get one until 1975. During that era, almost all S&W production was being directed to the Viet-Nam conflict.

That being the case, NUTTY JOHN still didn't have one. :punch:

Hey NUTTY JOHN, when the BATF confiscated your firearms, did they give you a receipt? :punch:

I'm pretty sure it's '73 or so. I was in collage when I read in Shooting magazine Skeeter Skeltons article about the M60, and it was a new gun then.

Guess gunkid is wrong again.

Gunkiddy doesnt have the proper equipment to have a "lump".
