If you have any first hand info on the model 66's drop on over and leave him a comment.

I own a Model 681 S&W that I carried when I was with the local Sheriff's Reserve. It is like the 66 but is the fixed site service revolver .357 mag with a 4 inch barrel. It shoots very nice once you learn where it shoots with the fixed back groove and front blade. I had to qualify with it to carry in uniform and it was a dream to shoot with the rubber Pachmayr grips. Since then our department has shifted to a .40 cal auto as the service side arm.

I am working my way through college as an armed guard. I am posted in the busiest Emergency Room in the state of TN. I am also the only guard that carries a weapon. One of those weapons is a model 66. I switch between my 66 and my S&W .40 semi. Due to an increase in gang activity, I purchased the .40 due to its high magazine capacity. The model 66 is a classic. No problems with it whatsoever. I still carry it sometimes because the duty gear that I have for my 66 is more comfortable than the gear for my 40. I also own several other guns for off duty and I like them all equally well. You will not be dissapointed with the S&W Model 66.

I had my eye on a Mod 66 or Combat Magnum for a long time. I am an avid outdoorsman, and enjoy this .357 for both hobby and self defense. I chose a six inch 66 for both its accuracy, looks and handling. Bullets go where you point it, and the 6 in barrel makes a day of long shooting just as fun at the end as it was at the start, plus the accuracy of this thing is great, single hand holding with double actions pulls is not hard at all. I do some reloading, and this old k-frame seems plenty strong enough to handle a full house load. I love the feel and safety of a revolver compared to the autos I have. There really is nothing like good S&W revolver. A model 66 is a great choice for someone who likes a reliable, safe, accurate, no bs revolver. A true sculpture in stainless steel - and I'd trust it with my life.

I own a smith&wesson model 66, it was the frist gun that i ever bought. I now own several guns but the model 66 is still my favorite. I use it as my carry gun instead of a .45 because of its accuracy and there is no matching the stoping power a .357 with a 125 grain hollow point bullet. Great gun!!

I have a 1933 - 1983 Model 66 ATF Commemorative .357. It is in perfect condition with all original cases and paperwork. I know that less than 2000 of them were made. I want to sell it, but I am having trouble getting a price. I know another one like mine was sole last year in Atlanta for $7000. Is this about what I should expect?
