The last Smith and Wesson airweight I had blew up in my hand. S & W Customer Service would not do ant thing about it. Screw S&W!
I ask because, most airweights are only rated for std loads. I have never heard of a .357 airweight until recently iwth newer models using titanium etc. What model was it? Original early airweights, the first ones , had an aluminum cylinder, and should never be shot! The newer Smiths have a 640(?) model with a Titanium cylinder, that can handle .357, but i do not know of any older ones? They must of had some reason for not wanting to help? That is a very unusual occurrence, especially in a 'complete failure". They would not say no with out a reason? Whether it was a good reason or not, who knows?Snake,
I had a .357 S & W airweight revolver. I loaded ii up with .38 specials that I have used in my other .38 revolver. When I fired it, it blew up in my hand.
I sent it to S & W, they sent it back and said they could not / would not help me!
That makes absolutely no sense. if it was a defect in workmanship, that is a factory fault? Ther is not way they should ask you to pay for it? Again, what model was it? Were there any modifications to the firearm made that S&W could have used as an excuse to not fix it under warranty?It was a .357 (that is not a standard load.) I was firing .38 specials. I looked at what S&W said - 'Defect in workmanship. Please send $537.00 for a new one.'
Sure, Right away LOL
Talk to Sam Andrews - Andrews Custom. His j-frame Saddle Style is hands down the most comfortable OWB holster I own. Conceals well, & presents effortlessly too.This is probably the fifth or sixth one I have owned. Won't go away anytime soon! Would like to find an open top hi-ride belt holster for outside the pocket carry too.
If they made one in .327 fed mag I would be interested. probably fit 6 rds too!I really like the Model 49 I have, it shoots well and is easy to carry. I wish S&W would make a new run of the same gun in .32 H&R Mag. The J-Frame S&W in that caliber are very hard to find and very pricy. I have a Model 332 but would like another, but in Stainless steel.
And now you don't need one in TN! I still have my enhanced lifetimeThat's a beauty! Every time I see a Bodyguard it reminds me of an old TN gas station attendant around '75. He pulled a blued Bodyguard out of his pocket and said he was ready for anybody, like so many were. TN didn't issue carry permission slips until '96 LOL
