Congratulations on 25 years. Beautiful gun, Smith will make it right Im sure, it sure is aggravating though. I traded for a new Taurus Raging Bull in 44 Magnum earlier this year and after showing it off to 6-8 people, I noticed the barrel was over torqued to the left. It was that unnoticeable, so it is easy to miss.

Update...gave S&W a call today explaining the issues and they promptly emailed me a return lable and said it would be about a two week turn around. Customer service good so far.

Update on Talo..

Just receive my revolver yesterday. I hurried home after work to do some testing before dark. My quick visual inspection show everything looking OK. The letter from S&W showed replacing the barrel, bolt and installing a taller front sight. I requested the taller front sight because there was not enough elevation adjustment to zero standard 158 gr loads; much less a heavier load.

I shoved 6 rounds in the cylinder, which open real easy, and fired three at 25 yards. All three were in a tight little group 1" below my point of aim. I figured this should be close to what I wanted for my zero (2" high at 50 yards). So, I shifted point of aim to my 50 yard target and shot the remaining 3 rounds about 3.5" high. I adjust down two clicks on rear sight and reloaded. Next three rounds were dead center of POI, so I went back up 1 click and bingo. Got my 2" high zero. S&W had mentioned test firing before shipping and they actually had it zeroed for me, they were only one click elevation off.

Overall it's shooting great and the customer service was great.
It was a little longer than they told me to begin with (2 weeks), but less than a month; nothing to complain about. I'm satisfied.

I have had 2 issues with different S&W products and my cs experience has been great. Glad yours seems to be the same. Congrats on 25 years.

Congrats on 25 years. It is something that a lot of couples never make. My wife and I now have over 41 years.

I was sure that Smith & Wesson would make it right.

I may just be lucky, I have owned a box full of S&W revolvers over the last 45 years. I have had an issue with only ONE. It was a 2.75" 44 Special Model 24 Custom Shop Gun. I had Ron Power fix it for me. He had it working perfectly in about 10 minutes.

So far no problems with 5 Super RedHawks, 5 GP100's and 3 SP101's. Make that 4 SP101's I had a 9mm several years ago. And a 45 Colt Bisley Hunter, and 3 LCR's.
