|This "N" frame Smith and Wesson .357 Magnum
is my own favorite for proportions. I like the 4"
and even the 6" but I consider this 5"
barrel the ultimate length for overall balance and
Being a 'dash 2" this is pinned and recessed,
meaning the chamber mouths are counterbored to accept
case rims and the barrel is secured to the frame
by a pin. The "N" frame is strong and will accept
hot loads well, although I tend to prefer using
reduced loads for quantity shooting. This gun pleases
my eye every time I see it!
