SHOT Show 2011: S&W's Governor Revolver Loads .410 Shells

January 18, 2011  | 


Smith & Wesson is introducing its own hybrid revolver at SHOT Show 2011 called The Governor that's chambered in .410 bore shot shells, .45 Colt and .45 ACP.

The Governor bears numerous similarities to the Taurus Judge/Public Defender revolvers and one important difference — a six-round cylinder takes an extra cartridge than the five-round Taurus.

The Governor arrives with a 2-3/4-inch barrel (1/4-inch longer than the Judge), low-light Tritium front night sight and a Crimson Trace grip option.

VIDEO: Robert Farago of The Truth About Guns posted his range demo from a Monday Smith & Wesson event where the gun was unveiled.
