Smith & Wesson has just launched the S&W Model 350, a new DA/SA revolver chambered for the fast-moving .350 Legend cartridge.
Smith & Wesson has been making revolvers for over 150 years, and the company needs no introduction. But even old dogs learn new tricks sometimes, and that’s the case with the new S&W Model 350. It’s the company’s first-ever production revolver chambered for .350 Legend.
.350 Legend was only introduced in 2019, but it’s been one of the fastest growing hunting cartridges since in terms of popularity. Until now, however, it’s primarily been utilized in bolt-actions and AR-style rifles. With the launch of the S&W Model 350, now handgun hunters have a greater opportunity to use .350 Legend as well. At first glance, the S&W Model 350 appears to be a fairly typical Smith & Wesson DA/SA revolver, but it has a few extra features that help take it to the next level.
Built on Smith’s large X-Frame, the Model 350 is a double-action/single-action 7-shot revolver made out of stainless steel. It has an adjustable rear sight, a red ramp front sight and a 7.5-inch barrel. The barrel has also been ported to help mitigate recoil, working in conjunction with the Hogue rubber grip. The 7-shot cylinder is also fed using moon clips.
John Myles, Senior Manager of New Products at Smith & Wesson, said this about the new revolver:
The 350 Legend is one of the flattest shooting straight-walled cartridges on the market today. It is great for medium-sized game and especially whitetail hunting. If you’re looking for a hunting revolver, the Model 350 is it.
The S&W Model 350 is available now. It has an MSRP of $1,599 and includes moon clips with each purchase.
