            no, it's used. bought it from a reliable gun store. they also had the same gun S&W, just a little more beat up and more carbon build-up from shooting too many .38's. same price tho. i went with the ruger, glad i did. shoot's real good, but kicks like a damn mule.

              With a lack of anyplace to shoot, I sold my hand cannon. Had a S&W 500 Magnum

                      I had some 158 gr SWC copper plated slugs I loaded over 12 grs of 2400, they shot pretty good from my 4 5/8" Blackhawk. That load did not lead with a hard cast bullet either. I loaded some 158 gr hard cast with IMR 4227, but have yet to try them.

                        Mine is the top one compared to a friend's .44 mag.

                        Model: S&W 500 PC CMPD HNTR 10.5"
                        * Caliber: .500 S&W Magnum®
                        * Capacity: 5 Rounds
                        * Barrel Length: 10.5" / 26.7 cm
                        * Front Sight: Orange Ramp
                        * Rear Sight: Adjustable
                        * Grip: Synthetic
                        * Action: Single/Double Action
                        * Trigger: .312 Chrome with Overtravel Stop
                        * Hammer: Chrome Tear Drop with Pinned Sear
                        * Frame: X-Large - Exposed Hammer
                        * Finish: Matte
                        * Overall Length: 18" / 45.7 cm
                        * Material: Stainless Steel Frame
                        * Stainless Steel Cylinder
                        * Weight Empty: 82oz.
                        * Scope: Leupold FXII 4x28

                        I normally shoot either of these rounds:
                        Hornady 500 S&W 300 gr FTX
                        Winchester 500 S&W 400 gr. PTHP

                        Safety goggles and hearing protection is a must. You do not want to fire it on an indoor range.

                        I took a 300 pound bull elk in Colorado a few years back with it. Roughly 100 yards and one shot using the Hornady 300 gr FTX round.
