Our Assessment: From its introduction in 2003, to this very day, the Smith & Wesson model 500 has been considered one of the finest and most powerful pistols made commercially. The installed 2-7x32mm scope provides handgun shooters with a wide, flexible range. 2x low end magnification offers quick target acquisition and a very large field-of-view. The 7x zoom at the top provides accuracy at handgun-stretching distances. This example shows hardly any wear and has a great bore and a nice trigger.
