Smith & Wesson Performance Center R8

Smooth……..Nimble……..Balanced……..

Eight*Shots*Of*Steam*Rolling*.357*Magnum*Power*!!!!!!!!


It’s a Smith & Wesson Performance Center R8 of course! While not a new handgun it’s becoming one of the most coveted revolvers anywhere. Do a web search and you see people putting it into video games with their own homemade code. There are You Tube videos, songs, reviews and multitudes of blogs written about the little known revolver that could.

Lauded as a tactical point man gun with rails that’ll take what ever gadget is trendy on the top strap and barrel it seemly has everything a person needs in one gun. This is probably why you don’t see a great many real ones in the wild.

Smith & Wesson’s Performance Center spends a bit of time tuning the action until it’s smoother than whipped butter. Two staging becomes a mere thought and very positive with the trigger break as crisp as a new dollar bill. Single stage shooting is unlike any other revolver, the lead is coaxed out of the pre tensioned barrel with such finesse you hardly know you are shooting the power house .357 Magnum round.

You are surprised when the air is torn asunder in a ball of furious blue flame making the targets fall out of fear if not the authoritative mass of it’s blistering projectile. The experience makes you giddy with endorphins the first and every time you shoot it. When you first see the Smith & Wesson R8 your brain says oh it’s just another revolver, you don’t even realize you’ve already picked it up and are thumbing the hammer. It’s massive, but, ….dare I say…light? It feels like you slipped through a mirror into a land of weird juxtaposition. How can it be so light yet so positive, so awe inspiring?

By now everyone else is looking at you at the gun counter, it’s very much like you discovered something new, shiny. The tribe grows restless, hoping you won’t buy it before they get a chance to handle it themselves. Every gun buyer has felt it but not like this.

The R8 connects to everyone who handles it in some unexplainable way. You can see it in their faces, questioning everything they know about what a gun is supposed to be. For some reason they feel like they’ve been lied to their whole lives. Revolvers are supposed to be heavy, they are supposed to be lacking capacity, they are supposed to be slow to reload. WHAT GIVES!

Everyone knows the end of the story but you, you’re still figuring out how you got home at this point. Reaching frantically to mount a light on the R8’s barrel, and stealing the nearest example off of your now extinct semi-auto. Watching from the corner your home defense shotgun cowers in fear of it’s own inevitable demise. Your match pistol snickers until it realizes you are walking towards it, hand out stretched to snatch that glass right off like you are stealing it’s crown. Sure you could be a purist and use the incredibly accurate iron V notch sights, you can even leave the top strap rail off, but why?

If you thought you heard your house sigh chances are you did. Everyone breathes easier with the Smith & Wesson R8 on their side. Everything you could ever need for a home defense system the R8 delivers in a very serious gun that is all business. Make no mistakes this gun is absolutely terrifying to look upon with the muzzle pointed at you. The psychological effect on a criminal facing it must be debilitating.

The Smith & Wesson Performance Center’s R8 is cutting edge, it doesn’t even seem to be of this world, but it exists. If you’re real lucky you may spot one in the wild but whatever you do don’t let someone else see it first!
