Model 360, a new J-Frame from Smith & Wesson

Smith & Wesson has just announced that they have begun shipping a new variant of the Model 360 revolver chambered in the popular .357 Magnum and 38 Special +P calibers. The world of revolvers is somewhat sparing with news. So, when a big company like Smith & Wesson introduces an addition to its already extensive J-Frame lineup it's always time to rejoice.

The new Model 360 combines lightweight and power in a carry revolver for personal protection, featuring a scandium alloy frame, a very modern-looking unfluted stainless steel cylinder and trendy Flat Dark Earth colored combat grips. It is designed primarily for concealed carry, weighting only 422 grams (empty), and boasting a 4.8 cm (1.875 inch) long barrel. 

A classic since 1950s

Smith & Wesson J-Frame revolvers are a “classic” since the 1950s, being designed to fire a full power round and being as simple and easy to use as they are reliable. They are available in various calibers and with three diverse hammer designs. These Smith & Wesson small revolvers have become the most popular and iconic small-frame personal protection weapons on the market. In the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge they are a very good choice for self-defense all-around.

The surface of the new Model 360 cylinder is protected by a deep black, matt PVD hard coating, and the ramp front sight has a red plastic insert for the fast target acquisition. This revolver is also available in .38 S & W Special + P caliber. 

The suggested retail price in the USA is 770.00 US dollars.
