I am interested in getting one of the model 617
revolvers in 22. I notice you can get one with
either a large capacity (10) cylinder or the regular.
My question, is there any difference in the trigger
pull or smoothness between these two. This may
sound funny, but I notice in my Taurus 22 that is
nine shot it has a very much more difficult trigger
and is much more difficult to shoot accurately
than my Taurus 357 which is 6 shot. Thinking
about it, there could be some difference in the
leverage and operation that somehow makes the
trigger harder to pull on cylinders with larger
capacity. For example if they get less rotation
of the cylinder by making the trigger pull a shorter
distance, then it has to move the hammer spring
just as far with less movement, meaning that
it is going to increase trigger pull. On the other
hand, they could just switch the geometry of the
thing around to make the trigger move the cylinder
less, and in this case trigger pull would not be
stiffened.

Can someone tell me about trigger pulls on the
regular and larger capacity model 617 ?

I ordered the model 617 in 10 shot. So if they can get it for
me I will experience the trigger pull pretty soon.

My new model 617, 10 shot came in today. It took
3 weeks to get it. S&W only make 10 of them per
day, they told us. Anyway the question is answered.
This 10 shot model has a double action trigger pull
smooth as glass, a pure pleasure to shoot.

Glad we could help! :mrgreen:

I have a 17 and a 617. The 617 is scoped and I have taken more tree rats with it than any other gun, even my .22 rifles. You're gonna love it!
