    I have been interested in the S&W night guard series revolvers and can't get my hands on one locally.

    I was hoping some of you guys could post some pics of a night guard compared to other guns.

    If things look right Im thinking about ordering one for CCW.

    So this is the chance for you revolver guys to convert a semi auto packer to a wheelgunnie :D

    Thanks guys, I appreciate your time.

    They have different sized frames between the models, L & N.. what model are you looking at?

    The only "Night Guard" I have is a 325 which is the N frame and I think it's a very nice gun, but I have several other's that are the same spec, just not the Night Guard.

    I have a 327 Performance Center and if I would do it over again I'd go for the Night Guard and put a Cylinder & Slide firing pin and Wilson Combat factory weight hammer spring in it and have basically the same gun (albeit not as cool looking) with better sights for about $300 less.

    I have a S&W 325pd with a 4 inch barrel. I prefer the longer barrel myself. As far as I'm concerned, it is just about as concealable as a snubbie. I have an IWB Kramer holster which carries nice and high. It is an N Frame pistol with a scandium alloy frame and a titanium cylinder. It weighs 28oz loaded, but everyone who has shot it has commented that the recoil was not as heavy as they expected. Depending one what I am wearing, I carry full moon clips or two round moon clips. I've been searching for 3 round 1/2 moon clips but I guess I'll just make my own.

    The double action trigger pull on this gun is fantastic. The only issue I have had was miss-fires which required a second strike. Those were primarily on reloads using Wolf primers (which I bought in desperation). After tightening the spring tension screw, the Wolf's are 99% reliable, reloads with Federal primers are 100% reliable, and factory ammunition (which is all I carry for defense) are 100%. Below is a 7 yard target I shot double action only.

    Pre Night Guard, this is a 325PD. This gun is now the Night Guard series...
