Re: S&W MODEL 617 22LR 10 shot ACCURACY
Well Shad, I'm planning on getting myself one of the 6", 6 shot model 617's in the next week or two. I dry fired one of the 10 shot models, and I didn't like the feel of it in double action. The trigger pull on the 6 shot model feels more like the triggers on my two 686's.
I shoot inter club bullseye matches, and I recently replaced my 6" GP-100 with a 6" S&W 686, and I'm getting the 6" 617 for the .22 stages of these matches. I'll also be using it for our club's Dot shoots, so I do hope the accuracy of the 6 shot models aren't in question.
Actually, I can't imagine what effect the number of chambers in the cylinder would have on accuracy, unless they had a batch of the 10 round cylinders that weren't machined right, or they are having timing and alignment problems with them, beyond that I assume the barrels are the same.
