    S&W's New 351C .22 Magnum Revolver

    Ordered these at shot as I like the .22 Magnum load (especially for female shooters). Well after 11 months, they showed up!

    Got a chance to put some rounds through the gun. Has a pleasant recoil (more muzzle flip than anything). IMHO, these make a much better choice for female shooters (that are recoil sensitive) than any of the pocket auto's or .38 revolvers.

    The 351C holds 7rds and weighs in at 11oz.

    My wife would love one. She had a 442 but hated the recoil. What are these running?

    Does the front post have a tritium insert or is it just a white dot?

    Based on my experience with Airlite .22s: will she be able to pull the trigger?

    Hey there's no lock on that gun.

    I've no idea what the penetration is like on .22 mag JHPs or solids but appart from that factor, I think it's a neat concept.

    I have not seen the invoice yet, but my guess is that we will sell them for around $500.

    Right. No lock. S&W is slowly removing these from all their revolvers.

    It still has the 10-12LBS trigger.

    You can always have trigger work done. Apex Tactical is also working on a new trigger mod for revolvers (that is user installed I think).

    I couldn't find one of those for my mother-in-law last month. I bought her a Taurus 941. It's ok...but I wish I could have found her the S&W.

    Can you fire 22LR out of this revolver for cheap practice ammo.

    Not really. The .22 Mag case is thicker, has a larger diameter, and the chambers are oversized for .22 lr. The .22 lr will fire, but the cases usually rupture.

    C4I Grant,

    Any issue with sticky extraction of fired cases with the 351?

    Check out this screw up from the factory. The gun is supposed to come with an XS front sight and came with Fiber instead.

    Haha yeah seriously. I mean, it clearly has unrepairable damage to it. You can't sell it in that condition. You should probably just send it on over here instead of discarding it, Grant.

    This looks like a good little pistol for the old lady, especially since speer is coming out with a 22 mag load. So is hornady critical defense.
