S&W model 66-1 combat .357 mag. This is a discussion on S&W model 66-1 combat .357 mag. within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I am new to this forum. Can anyone tell me if a model 66- 1 is a good hand gun? 4 barrel and looks to. This was good, encouraging officers to train more realistically, but it was also not good, bringing out a flaw Jordan had mentioned all along. The .357 K-Frame, despite its advanced construction over the older .38 K-Frames, was not built for a steady diet of magnum shooting. Frames stretched on occasion with high-mileage guns, end shake developed here and there, and, most notably, the forcing cones on K-Frame magnums were cracking at the bottom, in the flat section required by the yoke design, where the cone wall was thinnest.In a static, slow-fire paper shoot, the lack of a white outline on the new 66 wasn’t an issue, but I’d miss it in real-life use. Between the all-black rear sight and the not-quite-as-bright-orange front insert, the new sight picture doesn’t leap to the eye as quickly as the older one does. I’d like to see S&W correct this, especially in a gun more likely to see use for concealed carry than Saturday afternoon paper punching.

Barrel Length: 4, Vent-Ri Way back in a previous century, when I started a career as a cop, my off-duty gun was a blued, .357 Magnum Smith & Wesson Model 19 snubbie. The K-Frame was a near ideal size for such use, falling between the too-big-to-carry N-Frame in bulk and weight, and the too-small-to-shoot-well (for me) five-shot .38 Special J-Frame. In the days before the autopistol expansion, in areas where it was allowed, the .357 Magnum was a well-respected powerhouse in uniform, and the Model 19 was highly regarded. I'm thinking of taking advantage of the current $50 rebate on S&W J frames but really don't want to get into buying a new caliber (38spl). In doing some reading it seems S&W did at one time make a 9mm J frame (940). Seems people have swapped out the 38 spl cylinder in their J frame for a 940 cylinder sourced from either S&W or Brownells
Below are (top to bottom) a 2 1/2 S&W 686+, a 2 3/4 Ruger Speed Six and a 2 1/2 S&W Model 66. The L frame 686+ weighs 40 oz loaded, while the K frame 66 weighs 36 oz loaded. The Speed six is closer to the L frame is size, weight and durability but splits the difference at 37.5 oz in weight when loaded This article was originally published in “Gun Buyer’s Annual” 2018.

Chambered in 357 Magnum, The Smith & Wesson Model 66-1 is a single action/ double action revolver manufactured by Smith & Wesson. The Smith Model 66 is stainless steel version of the Model 19. The revolver is built on the company's K-frame which is smaller and lighter than the original N-frame 357 mag
S&W apologized for the manufacturing error and offered another test gun, but time didn’t allow for a re-shoot on this one. The company did say that the new 66’s cone should not be this shallow. Production going forward should gauge to normal specs, and with a wider angle and a properly centered internal cut, I’d expect to see shaving greatly reduced across the board, if not eliminated entirely from most jacketed loads.

66-1 - 1977, changed the gas ring from the yoke to the cylinder. 66-2 - 1982, eliminated pinned and recessed, slightly lengthened cylinder. 66-3 - 1986, new yoke retention system/radius stud package/hammer nose bushing/floating hand. 66-4 - 1994, change rear sight leaf, drill and tap frame, introduce Hogue grips, change extractor This week we have a very common handgun. It's the Smith & Wesson Model 19 chambered in .357 Magnum. This particular example is a Model 19-3, meaning that it was made after the third engineering change. The gun is built on Smith & Wesson's medium K frame and has a 4-inch barrel. Herrett Stocks replaced the factory grips with custom Roper. With the new S&W, the same CorBon 140-grain JHP caused four cylinder jams, again depositing jacket material between the forcing cone and topstrap that bound up rotation and had to be pried out. One CorBon round also stung my other cheek with particulate blowback. What’s up? I have a 66-1 that was a 6. Now it's a 4 because that was all that was available from S & W when mine cracked the forcing cone.. #23 08-17-2012, 03:05 AM BruceM. Senior Member : Join Date: Aug 2003. Location: SE Wisconsin.

Smith & Wesson Model 66-3 I have always liked K-frame Smith & Wesson revolvers, although it was the opinion of many that the .357 magnum load was a bit much for the design. The S&W Model 19 was a favorite of many lawmen and of many civilian enthusiasts; the S&W Model 66 is the stainless steel version of the Model 19 Today, we are looking at the S&W Model 66 stainless steel 2.75-inch barrel handgun on the popular K Frame. With so many requests from SurvivalBlog readers, we are covering this, another good ol' fashioned revolver. Early Years Carrying a Revolver Truth be told, in my early years as a police officer, private security contractor, and private investigator, I carried a revolver for the simple.
S&W no longer makes the 66. They changed to a bigger frame size so left over ones and used will be what's available. S&W now are making most of their guns in a two piece barrel system. Accuracy has improved and perhaps it is a cost saving feature also. Pictured is my last of the 66s an 66-7 snub with Crimson Trace laser grips But magnum pressures were still hard on the design parameters, and the cracked forcing cone issue was further aggravated by the increasing popularity of the higher-stepping 125-grain JHPs that showed such a high degree of effectiveness in one-shot stops from law enforcement holsters. The 125-grainers were very efficient on the street but very hard on forcing cones at the range. It took a while for the correlation between forcing cone wear and bullet weight to be made, and the introduction of the larger L-Frame magnum in 1981 came about to address the issues inherent to the K-Frame magnums.

There is enough room to eliminate the flat lower cone section of the older design, leaving full-thickness cone walls all the way round. The firing pin is situated in the frame, the hammer also uses the same semi-target width, and, interestingly, the new cylinder is fractionally longer than the older one.
The S&W M66 was introduced in 1971. The 66-1 was produced from 71 to 82. The -1 moved the gas ring from yoke to cylinder. It is pinned and recessed. In 1982 the -2 eliminated the cylinder counterbore (recessed). A 4 66-1 in 98% can run $450 and up depending on what part of the country your in. Does it have box and papers?

Also included is a set of Ahrends boot stocks, and a set of Altamont combat boot stocks. Both are shown in pictures below. However both sets now have the silver S&W medallions S&W pinned the barrels on its guns for over 100 years. You will also hear the term recessed which refers to revolvers with cylinders where the individual chambers have been counterbored to make the rim of the cartridge flush with the face of the cylinder
first time by S&W. In 1957, Smith & Wesson renamed its repertoire of revolvers with numbers, and the Kit Gun became the Model 34. The by Tom Clapper HISTORY OF THE LEDGENDARY SMITH & WESSON KIT GUN ** TH E MO S T PE R F E c T RE v OL v ER Ev E R DESIGNED ** Con't on page 6 S&W Pre War Transitional S&W Post War Transitional S&W J Frame. Smith & Wesson dropped the Model 66 from production in 2005. There were a couple of reasons. First, the trend in LE armament has almost entirely gone to the semi-auto pistol. Departments and officers who have the prerogative to purchase their own handguns rarely—if ever anymore—purchase revolvers, save a J-frame for undercover or as an off-duty weapon. Too, most .357 Magnum shooters have gone to the slightly heavier L-frame revolvers because they stand up to more abuse from the heavy loads. Next, I have a 4 Smith & Wesson 66-1, circa 1979-1980 based on the serial number 74Kxxxx. This is a pinned and recessed 357 Magnum and comes with a set of very comfortable Hogue grips. Unfortunately, I don't have the original stocks The recoil of the .357 Magnum has never been an issue for me with good grips. The grips on these two guns were very comfortable with all of the test loads, even the stiffer 140-grain CorBon rounds. I’d call it a wash between the two grips; both are well contoured and slip resistant without being abrasive. S&W 66-1 Discussion in 'Sold' started by phillipl8, Apr 14, 2019.

None of this shades the K-Frame magnums—it’s just a matter of physics and intended use at the time the gun was introduced. Firing .38s, the tried-and-true K-Frame was a stellar performer that typically ran fine for generations. This was fully in tune with the way most owners thought and shot in the 1950s and 1960s. Using magnums occasionally was fine in an era where very few people shot the hot stuff every weekend, and even with the common conventional magnum 158-grainers the K-Frame could hold up reasonably well with semi-regular use. In years past the ideal carry gun was thought to be a medium frame 3. S&W has finally decided it is time to bring back one of the classics, a 3 (or nearly so) S&W K-frame, in the Model 66-8. We decided to review the 2.75 66-8 and see how it runs, in hopes of understanding why the 3 wheel gun was so favored Since 1852 we've been an industry leading manufacturer of pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shooting accessories. We continue to bring innovative firearms to market that meet the needs of every shooter and deliver on exceptional quality with a brand you've learned to trust History. The Smith & Wesson K-38 Combat Masterpiece Revolver Model 15 is a derivative of the classic 1899 K-frame (medium frame) Military and Police .38 S&W Special (aka .38 Special) six-shot double-action revolver. The M&P underwent steady evolution throughout the 20th century and S&W spun off several variations as separate models in the post World War II years

It’s a built-in drawback we trade for better concealability in short wheelguns that we just have to work around. An extra quarter-inch on the new snubbie’s barrel doesn’t sound like all that big of a deal, but when combined with the front locking plunger being moved out of the way, the two modifications allow a full-length ejector rod without detracting from the overall concealability of this model in any practical way. It’s definitely a plus on the side of the new model here. Picked up a model 66-1 from a friend of mine today and will shoot it tomorrow. His hands shake and he is unable to shoot well anymore.

The fully adjustable rear sight is S&W all the way, with a rounded front tang over the drilled and tapped topstrap, but no white outline on its blade. The trigger and hammer are both MIM parts, and they share a dark black oxide finish with the thumbpiece and the visible screws. Besides the barrel length and construction, there is another significant change in front-end lockup on the new 66. The ejector rod shroud’s plunger is missing, and the longer barrel allows a longer ejector rod for better case extraction. Lockup functions have been moved from the ejector rod to a relocated plunger in the frame just ahead of the cylinder, and that plunger now engages a recess in the crane.

The K-Frame revolver is one of the most important innovations in Smith & Wesson history and was built specifically to handle the .38 S&W Special cartridge. Since its introduction in 1899, the K-Frame has been a favorite for military and police professionals as well as target shooters and enthusiasts. Today's K-Frame is available in .22 LR, .357 Magnum and .38 S&W Special The S&W Model 66 .357 Magnum K-Frame revolver is now offered with a 2.75-inch barrel. The gun is a stainless-steel, double-action revolver with an adjustable rear sight, synthetic grips, and a six-shot cylinder. The S&W K-Frame is iconic. The medium-size double-action revolver was first produced in 1896 in .32 S&W Long
The MSRP of the Smith & Wesson Model 66 Combat Magnum® .357 Magnum is $849. The Model 66 is a K-frame revolver by Smith & Wesson. The K-frame was originally introduced in 1899 specifically for the .38 S&W Special cartridge. So to see the Model 66 in a K-frame size as a .357 Magnum is pretty unique even if the outward appearance is pretty. When I left my first police department, I sold my snub-nose Model 19 during a moment of massive cranial discombobulation, and I’ve regretted it ever since. I acquired it used in 1976 and have no idea when it was built, but it was in excellent shape and a fine example of S&W at its best. I did stumble across a mint Model 66 snubbie years later and snatched it up as a more corrosion-resistant substitute if I ever decided to return to a .357 Magnum for concealed carry. The late-1980s production S&W has sat unfired since then.The L-Frame was so successful in creating a more durable .357 Magnum platform that it’s been in continuous production ever since, whereas S&W dropped the K-Frame magnums in 1999 (the blue Model 19) and 2005 (the stainless Model 66). The Model 19 is still only a used-gun proposition, but the Model 66 was reintroduced with a 4.25-inch barrel in 2014, and now in a 2.75-inch barrel in 2017. Would like trade a S&W 66-1 .357 magnum.

S-W 66-1 Smith & Wesson Model 66 in .357 Magnum. This is S&W's smaller .357, built on a K frame. This one has a 6 barrel and originally came with skinny wood grips. I added an Uncle Mike's Boot Grip, which is how the current version comes from the factory. The 66 is similar to the Model 19, except in stainless steel If your Smith & Wesson model is a round butt, but you prefer the square look, consider one of our conversion grips!

But the pining from the shooting public has jarred the brass at Smith & Wesson, and the company introduced the new Model 66-8 this year at the SHOT Show. I put a few rounds through it at Range Day and was impressed enough to have one sent to me for evaluation and testing. Three things jump out at you if you know the old 66s. First is the Hogue Monogrip that replaces the traditional S&W Goncalo alves target stocks. It takes some of the sting out of heavy loads and is eminently more practical, if rather plain in appearance. Second is the two-piece 4 1/4-inch barrel. Why two-piece and 4 1/4 inches? No one would fess up. Third is the new hammer and cylinder latch configuration. I suppose they are alright. Nowhere have I seen any evidence that these engineering changes have resulted in a failure to fire, causing the shooter to get shot by a bad guy. However, I must admit that I prefer to see that pivoting claw of a firing pin attached to my S&W revolver’s hammers. Smith & Wesson Model 66 Stainless Steel 6 shot K Frame,4 Barrel Revolver.

Jan 16, 2012 #1. Buffman XDTalk 1K Member Founding Member Internet reports have detailed cases of jacket shaving and blowback with new snub-nose 66s. I started testing with the older 66 and encountered a single instance where one CorBon 140-grain JHP shaved so badly that it deposited chunks of jacket material between the top of the forcing cone and the topstrap large enough to stick out and bind up the cylinder’s rotation. I had to carefully chisel them out with a small screwdriver and hammer. That never happened again with that gun, but I did get blowback from a Hornady 140-grain FTX round that stung my cheek and drew blood from my trigger finger.

I had a 66-1 with serial number 97Kxxxx and it WAS pinned and recessed. I would venture to say yours is a transitional model as Smith and Wesson was almost into the 66-2 at that time. They also relocated the S & W logo from the right side of the frame to a smaller version on the left side below the cylinder release Under the grip pitting question. S&W 66-1 (self.Revolvers) submitted 7 months ago * by kirial. I think I may have gotten burned in a trade. I didn't look under the grip when I traded for a S&W 66-1 2.5, and it's pitted as hell.

Basically, the test setup was very simple; I decided to shoot five commercial jacketed loads off the bench through both guns at 25 yards in a condition- controlled indoor range with good lighting. Accuracy was the goal, so I didn’t incorporate any speed contests or combat drills. An old MTM pistol rest was used to support each revolver.In discussing the results of his ammunition with Peter Pi at CorBon, he said he’s noted shaving in several .357 Magnum revolvers over the years with 140-grain JHPs, and it appears to be a known issue in some guns. He uses quality Sierra bullets in his 140-grain loads. For sale is a S&W 66-1 stainless 4 .357 Mag with nice aftermarket grips and a new Galco leather holster.

Conventional policy was to practice and qualify with .38 Special ammo while carrying the full-bore magnum rounds of the day on duty. This worked just fine for many years after Bill Jordan collaborated with S&W to develop the K-Frame magnum in 1955. In the late 1970s, though, a new philosophy emerged, and the idea of shooting the same magnum loads for training and qualification at the range as we carried in the cruisers began to spread across the country.

Red Ramp Front Sight with Stainless Steel White Outline Adjustable Rear, Barrel is Pinned, A Wide Smooth Faced Case Hardened Target Trigger has been Added A look at the history of Smith & Wesson clearly shows how the company has been—and continues to be—at the forefront of innovation and manufacturing prowess. From the time of the first totally enclosed cartridge—the .22 Short—introduced in 1857 to the modern X-frame in .460 and .500 S&W Magnum, the company has met the needs of handgunners, often before they even knew of that need. In 1957 Smith & Wesson introduced the Model 19 Combat Magnum at the behest of Border Patrolman Bill Jordan. Law-enforcement types flocked to the Model 19 like deer to a corn feeder, resulting in the nickname a “police officer’s dream gun.” It was the size and weight of most .38 Special revolvers, yet had the capacity to handle the powerful .357 Magnum that many officers preferred because of its superior stopping power and penetration. Even plain-clothed detectives liked the 2 1/2-inch-barreled version, and, naturally, the citizens competed in the marketplace for the premium revolver.

Orders placed today ship within 24 hours of purchase (excludes firearms) The 5-pound SA pull on the new 66 was heavier than it needs to be, but it’s tolerable. It broke clean when it did let go, and the 5-pound pull on the older snub also offered a clean break, so no advantage either way in SA triggers. The DA pulls were off my scale on both revolvers, but noticeably heavier in the new gun as measured by my meticulously calibrated trigger finger. Firing in DA mode, the nod clearly goes to the old model. Contact Us. Numrich Gun Parts Corporation 226 Williams Ln. Kingston, NY 12401 Phone: 866.686.742
