  • Someone 'splain this one to me, please.

    Why, in the name of JMB, does Smith&Wesson keep making their revolvers in both "round Butt" and square Butt" designs?

    The only benefit I can see to it is to the aftermarket butt manufacturers.

    I've got three of them, and the difference in fit from one to another style is nonexistent, so why do they keep doing it?

    I don't get it.

    Why does Levi's make jeans in both straight leg and boot cut?

    It's whatever floats your boat.

      I love the round butt and don't care much for the square. I am sure there are folks who are the opposite.

          I'm with Herr Walther on this. I prefer the square butt too, although the round butt frame is more easily concealed.

            Who wooda ever thunk it I'm with HW. Him and me are polar opposites. Could be S&W does the butt the way they do is due to S&W was bought out by anti gun zealots. Just MHRO.
