    Very nice pics Bushmaster1313! Everyone should have at least one S&W revolver in their line up. The 27-2 has such a nice wide trigger and you caught it perfectly in you pics.

    You've made me curious. The wide trigger actualy caught my eye and then you commented on it. I've had a couple of M&P's, both were 10-5 and they were great guns but didn't inspire me enough to keep from selling them to buy other guns. I am however watching for the deal so I can add S&W back to my lineup again. If you or anyone else would care to elaborate a bit I'm just wondering what is your take on it. Does it enhance the over all feel or anything else worth concidering? And is it only found on the 27?

    fuzebox, you got your "service trigger" and your "target trigger". The wider the trigger is, the lighter the pull feels, as it is spread out over a larger section of your finger. The narrow "service trigger" supposedly is quicker. Skinnier trigger is easier to get your finger on. Then they have "combat triggers". They are generally smooth. The serrations on the target trigger keep your finger from slipping, when you get nervous and sweaty during a match. The smooth surface of the "combat trigger" allows you, if you did not get your finger in the right spot, to slide it over easier.

    Some folks like one kind, some another. I generally prefer the target trigger. It is the regular trigger on most 27s, 29s and 57s. But you can get it on any K or N frame. I've got four M&Ps. My newest, a 10-6 from the late 70s, has a target hammer and target trigger. The other three all have narrow hammer spurs and narrow triggers.

    That's a good exlanation and makes perfect sence of it. Thanks for putting that in perspective for me. In theory I think I may like that wide trigger for a shooter but I don't recall ever giving one a test drive. I had a Rohm (Saterday Night Special) that may have been wide but I don't remember for sure, probably because I never shot it before trading it away. But my S&M's had the smooth trigger and this Arm 357 as you can see has a very narrow trigger which I know I wouldn't care for on a double action but this being single action only, it doesn't bother me. I like the K frame S&W's for an every day shooter though but weather it's a keeper or just passing through has so much to do with the over all feel of the gun.

    Take a look here. The bottom one has the target trigger and hammer, as you can see since the narrowing needed to fit into the trigger slot and hammer slot in the frame is very obvious (ignore the red circle - it was for something else entirely).

    The top gun has the "service" trigger and hammer, but it also has a trigger shoe on it. This is a thingy that bolts onto the trigger(see the two set-screw holes?) and gives you a target-width trigger. You can get one of them and put it on your trigger, to try, and if you like the wide trigger, you can either leave the shoe on, or replace your trigger.

    Interesting, I wasn't aware of the shoe thing. I'll definitely remember that incase my next buy doesn't have the wide trigger as I do need to experience it, see if it's for me.
    Here's the 357 I forgot to pic a bit ago, refering to the narrow trigger. Designed after the Colt.
    BTW, I personaly much prefer the looks of the target set. Nice looking gun, icluding grip.

    Not having large hands I find the target trigger harder to reach with my trigger finger.

    I prefer the regular trigger of the pre-27

    It looks to be a "TRIPLE LOCK" Model of '08? Early N frame.

    BTW - you guys are shameless posting those "gratuitous" pics.
