Sure, why not.

I don't have many pics of them. The 4" one now has Hogue Bantam (compact) grips now and I must say it rides nicely in a belt holster. The long one is much easier to hit with though. I'd like to try the 6 1/2" barrel.

Hopefully you can shoot some different versions before you buy. They behave differently.

OK, had to add 2 new pics of the carry gun. If you've only handled the big version, it's like a totally different gun.

Excuse me Molasses, the top Smith is a 10.5" PC in .460 S&W magnum, and the BFR is in which caliber?

plinky i'm buying the 4in. ive never shot the gun at all. also, what is the difference between the regular 500 and the jim ross special?

Bigger is Better

I think the difference is the chance of a barrel length choice between 4" and 6 1/2": actually it measures 5", it's half-lug, that is to say better balanced and ligther than 6 1/2" brl with one inch more than 4" brl version, and the strong recoil is mitigated by muzzle brake.

Had my snub nose for awhile and love it. It's always fun taking it to the indoor range. Place is always crowded until I fire off a few rounds then you can hear a pin drop for some strange reason :)

Friends see my gun from this end

As cool as it is to catch a glimpse of those hollowpoints in their majesty, a majority would say you've definitely violated the basic and most fundamental rule, Racing Jack.

No way is holding a camera in front of a loaded gun violating any rules, fundmental or no, mirrors or no.

This new 500 is on my list. "Classic" looking, don't you think?

No I hate the new look, why don't S&W come out with a 500 Mag in a 6 inch barrel with no B. S. compensator.

I always thought the X-frames looked rather cartoonish, especially in the shorter barrel lengths. Kinda like a Roger Rabbit revolver. The frame and(more so) cylinder are just so massive!


I could also be a bit jealous.

I like the black 5" S&W with out the Compensator.
The tight cylinder gap gives more speed than an extra inch of barrel.

That is the John Ross version, I do not like the barrel nut on it, it takes away from the look of the gun in my opinion.

I am talking about a 500 Mag with no compensator that looks like a regular S&W handgun without that ugly compensator.

I have owned 5 S&W 500 Mags as well as the 460 Mags. I still own a 4 inch S&W Mag and a PC model 460 Mag. The compensator is not needed in my opinion, it takes away from the look of the gun and creates too much muzzle flash and noise. The only thing the compensator does is aid in reducing the muzzle rise.

I had a custom end cap made for my 4 inch S&W 500 Mag, and I like the gun a lot more, now if I could only find someone to make a decent looking barrel nut for my 460 PC model, I would get rid of that ugly compensator. The bad thing about the PC models is, the compensator acts as a barrel net as well as a compensator. And I don't want a barrel nut like what is on the John Ross 500 Mag.

Ditto. I think it might be fun to have a stockmaker put together a "to-scale" grip for this gun. Then see if my mitts are big enough to use it.

Excuse me guys, but what means Roger Rabbit revolver? :confused: :D

I don't know if Roger Rabbit was released in Italy but:

It's a half animated, half live action movie. Many of the characters were exaggerated in size. Many of the guns were much larger than real life also.

No no, I know very well who Roger Rabbit is: he was one of my favourite movies and characters when I was child. Movie's title is "Who framed Roger Rabbit" and the human character was Bob Hoskins, if I don't mistake. Only problem is that I didn't remember that in the movie was a big revolver.

It's his toon revolver, that he pulls out just before goingto into Toontown. The bullets are in the case as well and are speaking characters in their own right.
The revolver isn't large, so much as oddly proportioned.
