Smith & Wesson’s answer to the Taurus Judge is a revolver chambered in .410 bore shotgun, .45 ACP (with moon clips) and of course .45 Long Colt.

The double-action trigger pull is smooth and consistent, while the single-action trigger has a crisp “glass rod” break at just over 4 pounds. The 2.75″ barrel of the Governor gives it a nice balance, but both the .410 and .45 LC loads, while stout, are easily tamed despite the barrel’s short length.

Certainly both the Governor and Judge fill a special market need but as an old wheel gun collector, IMHO, I must say that they are just too butt ugly for my taste.
