    What revolvers beside the S&W 686+ and Taurus Tracker 627 have 7 round cylinders?

    There's a Smith 619 (fixed sight) and 620 (adjustable sight) - I'm thinking of getting a 620 later on...

    The older Taurus 607 that was supplanted by the 8-rounder 608.

    I've had a 686+ for years. I've shot it a bunch, mostly with less than full power loads and never had a problem.

    But....those thin cylinder walls sure do worry me. Has anybody ever heard of a blow out with factory full power loads?

    Should be fine, esp since the bolt notches are offset vs the 6 shot versions.

    There are quite a few.

    I'm just a six shooter type of guy. :)

    I have a S&W 327 NightGuard that has 8 rounds. I shoot this more accurately than any handgun I own.
     
  11. Call me old school but I've always preferred 6 rounds in a wheelgun. I had had a SW 696 that I sold like an idiot that was a 5 shot.
