New Smith & Wesson
Smith and Wesson Website | Texasproud

Posted on 11/03/2005 1:53:40 PM PST by TEXASPROUD

Smith and Wesson have done it again. After reintroducing the Model 21, an N-frame, fixed sight, slim barrel, big bore revolver, they must have had decent sales. Just introduced this week is the new Model 22, a 4" N-frame, fixed sight, slim barrel in .45 ACP. Just wanted to let you know it is out there. No there is no Gold Thunder Ranch on it, the Thunder Ranch insignia is on the grips.

S&W just reintroduced the M21? I just took a brief look and couldn't find it on their website.

I see that S&W still make Dirty Harry's Model 29 Combat Magnum in .44 mag, but they don't make my Model 19 Combat Magnum in .357 mag anymore.

Does this Model 22 require half moon clips for the .45acp ammunition? I never quite grasped the whole 'rimless cartridge in a revolver' thing.

Damn, that's sweet. But I agree with the reviewer's criticism of the round-butt design.

Yes, it will use moon clips of auto rim ammo (a pain to find). I have a 1917, several Model 25's and a 625. The full moonclip is a fantastic way to reload a revolver fast.

There's a video clip floating around the net of Jerry Miculek shooting 6, reloading and shooting 6 more in 2.99 seconds.

Yes...and right when I was feeling so rone-ry!

Seeing the photo made me all cuddly inside, though. I'm a sucker for Fine Art.

(of course, it could still use a bayonet....but then again, so can everything)

Nope, you can't see the fourth screw. It should be visible from the angle of the frame and trigger guard. You could put in the upper as a cosmetic item, the fourth is much more problematic with atleast three extra parts and possible mods to the cylinder latch.

It looks exactly like the gun in the "faster than a speeding bullet" part of the opening of Steve Reeve's Superman TV show.

I have Safariland speed loaders for my Model 19, so I can see how full moon clips could be handy for the first and second reload, but after that, if you need to use loose cartridges, you have to manually pull out the spent brass and replace them with fresh loads one at a time...

To be fair, reloading a magazine with loose cartridges probably isn't all that much faster. You just don't have the empty brass to deal with.

Am I dreaming, or was there a revolver once that had some sort of mechanism at the rear of each cylinder so that it held rimless cartridges without the need for moon clips? Maybe I was just dreaming.

If I can't do it in 18 rounds, I'll use my teeth. :)

My current favorite revolver is my S&W (early 70's) model 66-2 .357 magnum. Thousands of rounds and not one issue. Great shot at even long distances.full trigger job, custom sights, and amazingly light yet safe trigger. Plus if i ever needed it, i'll have to tell the attacker "make my day". :)
