In this episode of TFBTV, James gets his hands on the newly released (May 2017) S&W Model 69 Combat Magnum 2.75″ barrel in .44 Magnum. This diminutive magnum packs 5 rounds of .44SPL/MAG into a package smaller and lighter than a standard 1911. Truly, this gun is small enough that it can be carried concealed, but what does that mean for recoil? James puts this new revolver through the paces on TFBTV today, and then rates it using the new CCW review scoring system:
James will review the following features and assign a value of 0 (poor) to 7 (excellent) for each:
