Smith & Wesson 929 Performance Center Jerry Miculek Signature Model

15



Sometimes even geniuses need help. In each field of activity, including the production of firearms weapons, technicians need advice from professional users, which will satisfy all their needs.

This is the path taken by one of the best weapon development laboratories on the planet - Performance Center Smith & Wesson - whose specialists turned to the legendary champion Jerry Mikulek for advice. They were working on a model with a long barrel - an 8 round 9mm revolver for competitive shooting.

The fruit of this joint collaboration is the Smith & Wesson 929 Performance Center "Jerry Miculek Signature Model" revolver - "the model signed by Jerry Mikulek." It was presented this year during the IWA & OutdoorClassics exhibition, which took place in Nuremberg.



The Smith & Wesson 929 Performance Center revolver uses 9x19mm Parabellum cartridges. Its total length is 311 mm and the barrel length is 165 mm. To reduce the weight of the revolver, a stainless steel frame is used, as well as a titanium alloy from which the drum is made.

Features of the new Smith & Wesson 929 include a removable expansion joint, glass bead blasting, chrome trigger dip adjuster, mock clip cutout drum, synthetic grip cheeks and Jerry Mikulek signature.
It is also worth noting that this revolver is equipped with mechanisms that were manually tuned to the Performance Center wizard. This provides it with unique descent characteristics in single and double action modes.

    Smith and Wesson .... and immediately - Western, cowboys. laughing And the Colt "Python" praised by the cinema. No, the revolver is of course a legendary weapon, but as a civilian weapon, well, if without collectible show-off, in general good .However, here is this Amer fashion for 6-inch trunks named after Clint Eastwood request It is clear that at the dawn of the transition from disposable cavalry pistols to revolvers, it was justified. And now? Well, I don’t know, it’s rather like some kind of impotent reproductive complex - even if the barrel is more authentic and thicker.

      Here is a sample of a 5-inch barrel in various designs, I would take it for the money with pleasure in personal possession - new, clean, legal. You can buy an analogue "TT" from us for this budget, but it's not a fact that 10 people won't hang on it, since pre-war times ..

    C'mon, what is the difference between our moneybags buying huge cars for themselves? The status is the same. For me, a big trunk is better than a huge stitch with a brainless silicone doll in the front seat

    Tradition, however. Moreover, the competition machine, as the scripture says. I thought it was only with us that they were perverted with revolvers, fitting them for firing PM cartridges, no, we are not the only ones. What the hell? After all, there is the widest range of revolving ammunition in the United States, why was there such garbage?

      "I thought that it was only here that they were perverted with revolvers, adapting them for firing PM cartridges."

      - Isn't it easier, so as not to look for cartridges for makar (strict accounting), to convert it to a "construction" cartridge and pellet? the availability of ammunition is awesome, the penetrating ability is very good. enough ..

        In Israel, a revolver was produced for a pistol flangeless cartridge "9 mm Para", and maybe it is still being produced. Due to the lack of flanges in the liners, it has a peculiar drum design.

    Yeah, with a fine barrel .357 or .45 magnum, and so nonsense turns IMHO

    Revolver with eight 9 mm Parabellum! What's the point? Large, heavy, and with a small amount of ammunition. Any sane gun hits him in terms of weight, size and quantity of ammunition.

      Yes, but that’s another matter. This revolver is primarily a commercial project, and then a sports one.

      When you just like it, the voice of reason is silent in a rag. For children from 18 to 80, such a toy is unrivaled))))))))))

    The article is similar to a brochure, but still put + for the brutality of the device. A good revolver: a capacious drum for a common cartridge, adjustment of the descent, BUT it hurts too much and probably heavy, more suitable for cinema. With such a trunk, only some Bruce Willis will meteorites from the Earth to drive away.

    It looks certainly beautiful. But from a practical point of view, it is "Not there and not syudy" request

    typical civilian weapons for home storage and shooting at a shooting club shooting range. It is not very suitable for wearing, or rather it is very unsuitable, except for a cowboy costume. In short, show off alone, not practical, but oh ... very cool bully

    The article is not very informative. The barrel is beautiful and eight-loaded, which is a lot for a 9 mm caliber. Most likely, the choice of "Parabellum" is due to the presence of "match" cartridges in this particular caliber. I wonder how much such a machine costs? As a "prior" I suppose)))))))

    The revolver frame is clearly designed for a different, longer, drum and, accordingly, for others, namely revolver, not pistol cartridges. Indeed, such a beast, but under 45!
