    I know this is a Colt forum, but I think the S&Ws have an edge when it comes to function, fit and finish. I have worked on many Colts and S&Ws, and if i had to pick a shooter it would definitely be a S&W. Here's my Dirty Harry gun (29-2), I have fired it a few times but it's now retired to safe queen status:

    Just yesterday I just came across the original receipt when I bought this great shooting Model 18 .22 in the 80s, used for $169. Traded it to a friend then bought it back five years ago for my offer of $450.

    At one time my Smith & Wesson battery was fairly extensive, but of late have pared it down to go primarily with the Single Action revolver. I went through many different revolvers over the years as an educational course. Here is my Model 29-2 from some years back. It had the heavy barrel until I returned it to S&W and had them put a 5" full lug barrel on the gun.



    This was the second Model 29 I had made up with the full lug barrel. The first was fitted with an 8 3/8" barrel, but later I had it cut back to a more manageable 6" length.

    As 8 3/8":



    And, cut to 6"

    We have a few Smith & Wesson revolvers, and we've had a few others over the years. One of my favorite revolvers is a S&W Combat Masterpiece or Model 15. We've had a couple of Model 19s, several Model 29s, a Model 25-2, 25-5, a Model 28, and some 36s, and currently have a Model 19-3; 6 inch, a nickel M 27 6 inch, and a later production Model 24 6 inch.

    I don't have any pictures of them, but do have a few shots of my Dad's K-38 Target Masterpiece, slightly modified by him with the target upgrades. We still have this one as well as the box:

    Like Dalfort, my S&W's are mostly old. Shown below are all Smiths but two:
