I just found out that the new S&W revolvers have an internal lock and that some people have had issues with their revolver locking on them after a shot with a hot load. When were these locks implemented and is it possible to buy a new Smith without one? If not then is it an option to have the lock disabled (dremel tool style) at the factory? This upsets me as I will never buy a revolver with one of these dumb mechanisms.

You better get used to it or you will only be purchasing used firearms.

With more and more States passing these laws, the gun industry is responding to the requirement in order to continue selling their product in these states.

its a matter of time before some sort of electronics are evolved into the guns security, I figure. :shock: :evil:

I could learn to live with a lock if it wasn't ugly and didn't interfere with shooting, but these locks have engaged during use. Now that makes it less an issue of principle and more an issue of safety. I'd hate having to grind the lock out of a shiny new gun because it's a safety hazard. :x
