Smith & Wesson introduces the Model 350, its first production revolver chambered in 350 Legend. The addition of this new revolver brings a new caliber to the X-frame series alongside the .460 S&W Magnum and the .500 S&W Magnum.

The Smith & Wesson Model 350 is an X-Frame size, double-action/single action revolver with all stainless-steel construction. Features include a 7.5-inch, ported barrel, red-ramp-insert front sight and adjustable rear-sight system. A textured Hogue rubber monogrip helps anchor the 350 in the hand.

Since the 350 Legend cartridge is not rimmed, the Model 350 utilizes moon clips for loading and unloading. This provides a faster method of both loading and unloading the revolver, as all seven rounds are held together in the moon clip. As of press time, only a single, seven-round clip is available for the Model 350.

“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,” said John Myles, Senior Manager of New Products.

While the Model 350 may not be “the most powerful handgun in the world,” it brings a medium-bore round to the X-frame family. The 350 Legend is now available in revolver form, adding a handgun version to match existing rifles and carbines in this new straight-walled caliber.

MSRP for the Model 350 revolver is $1,599, and for more information visit smith-wesson.com

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.
