Billed as the most powerful production revolver in the world today, the Smith & Wesson Model 500 defines pure power.
With it's massive X-Frame and .500 S&W Mag. cartridges, the Model 500 is a hunting handgun that's more than capable of taking on any game animal you'll find. Renowned for its power and mightily respected for its considerable recoil, the Model 500 is very much deserving of its turn as Gun of the Week.
