Our Assessment: The Smith & Wesson Model 60 was the first stainless steel revolver and the 7th variation is a good example of one. This 5 shot snub nose was arguably the most carried handgun of plainclothes police and detectives during the revolver era. It is still one of the most often carried handguns either as back-up or primary concealed carry gun. It is rated for “+P” defensive ammo and should be still be very controllable due to its steel frame construction. Everybody with a CCW should at least consider this style revolver as an option.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This revolver is not on the California DOJ “roster of certified for sale handguns”, and can only be transferred to a California resident as a private party transaction (PPT) at our shop in Simi Valley. This does not apply to out of state buyers.
