    OK folks,

    Once again, did a bit of research thaht turned up not much, so another lame newbie question:

    Exactly what does "pinned and recessed" mean.

    Many thanks,

    In Smith and Wesson revolvers, the barrel and frame are pinned together by a visible pin.

    Recessed means the revolver's chambers are countersunk.
