You purchased one of their guns and had it blow up on you, sent it to them, they tell you send us 600 and we'll ship you a new one and you didn't ask them why they're not replacing free of charge? Ok thenYes I am the original owner.
Really? I wonder why they would not replace my revolver.
My Advice - Do not buy anything from S&W
Buy a Ruger!
I like both brands without previous issues and will continue to buy both.
