Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The cylinder lockup produces very little play on each of the five chambers. The double action trigger is smooth and the single action is crisp. We did not fire this handgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: Included is a yellow Hardigg storm case, paperwork including the manual, survival knife, survival chainsaw, compass, whistle, signal mirror, fire starter, emergency blankets, and the book “Bear Attacks of the Century”.
Our Assessment: The S&W 460 is built on S&W’s largest frame, the X-Frame, which was developed because none of S&W’s existing double-action frame designs could handle the muzzle energy and pressures generated by the .500 S&W cartridge. The .460 S&W Magnum is essentially a longer and more powerful version of the .454 Casull, itself a lengthened and more powerful .45 Colt. Able to push a 200 grain bullet past 2,300 fps, the .460 S&W is not just one of the most powerful handguns in the world, it also fires at one of the highest velocities of any revolver in the world, allowing for unprecedented penetration when hunting with a revolver. This example is the Emergency Survival, or ES, model and comes with its emergency kit. Made for only one year and in such good condition, this is a great addition to a collection of Smith & Wesson revolvers. Please see our pictures and good luck!
Some are hot, some are not, but thankfully most can be shot!
