    :supergrin:This gun is not on the S&W website. It was made expressly for the LAPD. It has a stainless steel cylinder instead of titanium, and has trijicon front sights. I won't pick it up until the 23rd of this month, then I will post pictures.

    Has anyone heard anything about this weapon yet?

    Actually, a couple years ago, on S&W's website, I saw a PDF LEO catalog that showed it. It didn't state who it was for, only the specs and I forgot about it. That and your post was the only thing I heard about it. Nice find. :)

    Long ago, Michigan State Police had a two-tone snub made.
    It was heavy however.
    Enjoy.

    It's exactly like your 340 M&P, except it shoots only 38spl.

    It's my first snubbie...so when the Internal Lock is applied (and it never will), there is no "flag" shown so one can know it is on?

    I am reluctant to check the lock because of a prior experience with the lock on a new 360PD I used to own...operative words being "used to..."
