Smith & Wesson announced the return of the model 66 Combat Magnum. One of the most popular police sidearms during the 70′s and 80′s, the Model 66 is a K-frame gun lost favor in the law enforcement community with the switch to semi-automatic pistols in the 80′s and 90′s. The original Model 66 ceased production in 2005.
The new Model 66 revolver uses a stainless steel frame, barrel and cylinder with a glass bead finish. The guns hold six .357 Magnum rounds. The guns will ship with the red ramp front sight and white outline, adjustable rear that were popular with many people.
Synthetic grips are standard on the new guns. No MSRP has been provided on the new model 66, but we will try to nail that down in the coming days.
