Description Additional Information
Low prices on the Smith & Wesson 340PD Scandium Frame / Titanium Cylinder .357 Magnum start at Champion Firearms:

S&W's Flyweight Hand Cannon. The secret behind Smith & Wesson�s model 340PD is in its unique scandium alloy frame. The 340PD's frame is so lightweight that it virtually defies the laws of gravity.

When you stop to consider this revolver is chambered for the ultra potent .357 Magnum cartridge, the self- defense possibilities for this pocket cannon are truly limitless. Scandium is one of the rarest and most potent alloying elements on the periodic table.

When added to aluminum, it significantly increases strength and
was even used by the former Soviet Union on everything from missiles to MIG fighters. This combination of high tech materials gives rise to one of the lightest and most powerful concealed carry handguns available in the world today.

The Smith & Wesson 340PD has a five shot titanium alloy cylinder. It is rated for full power .357 Magnum loads, but is equally capable when downscaling to .38 Special.

Make no mistake, this revolver is not for the faint of heart. When shooting full power .357 Magnum loads, the recoil is going to be brutal.

But there�s no reason to run a steady diet of hot, heavy duty-type ammo through this small revolver. The gun's sole purpose is simple- it was designed to save your life in an emergency.

It is specifically geared toward the concealed carry market, an area where it has served extremely well. The 340PD is lightweight, compact, easy to carry, easy to draw, easy to use, and enjoys an off the chart power-to-weight ratio.

For those that question the practicality of a revolver, keep in mind they don't jam- up, stovepipe, fail to feed or extract. Compared to semi-autos, revolvers are not only more reliable mechanically, but they are also more forgiving with operator error, and are much simpler to operate under stress.

With revolvers, there�s no chance of limp-wristing or creating a stoppage. There's no magazine to accidentally release and no slide movement to impair the action (if blocked, if ejected shells bounce back into the ejection port, etc.).

Loading and unloading are much easier, and accomplished by using gravity to drop rounds directly into the cylinder, versus the wrestling match new shooter's often experience attempting to push rounds into a magazine under spring tension. In addition, revolvers aren't picky about the types of ammo they fire.

When encountering misfires, rather than highly skilled clearance drills required to get a semi- auto back on line, revolvers only require that an operator squeeze the trigger again. More importantly, revolvers are capable of firing while remaining completely concealed.

Auto's require sufficient distance from objects like clothing to cycle properly. Yes, basic gun handling skills prevent some of the operator-induced mistakes that can cripple a semi-auto. However, these type of errors are practically non- existent on revolvers.

The Smith & Wesson 340PD is a snag- free hammerless double action only design. Without a hammer spur, the sleeker profile provides a smooth draw from concealment.

The design also does not collect lint or debris between the hammer and firing pin like traditional double action revolvers. Although the AirLight has a heavy double action trigger, it remains safe in all concealed carry conditions.

This revolver is outfitted with a 1.875" barrel, a fiber optic front sight and weighs in at only 11.4 ounces. Notwithstanding its snub- nose barrel, it shoots remarkably straight.

The 340PD has a slip resistant rubber grip that helps to maintain control when firing...because you're certainly going to need with the tremendous recoil generated by this revolver. A word of caution- beginning shooter's should never start with full power .357 Magnum loads until they have sufficient trigger time with reduced loads.

Then, gradually work your way up to full power loads. Overall, the Smith & Wesson 340PD is an excellent choice for any EXPERIENCED shooter looking for an accurate, reliable and affordable self defense handgun.
