S&W Governor

Billed as “The revolver of choice. Literally.”, the Smith and Wesson Governor is a six-chamber revolver that can chamber rounds in 3 different calibers. Specifically .410 shotshell, .45 Colt, and .45 ACP. The overall length is 8.5 inches with a 2.5 inch barrel and the total weight is 29.6 ounces. In addition, it feature a synthetic grip and a dovetailed Tritium forward night sight. The model shown above also includes the optional Crimson Trace laser grip, for improved target acquisition. Revolvers are reliable sidearms, and it’s a real treat to see one with such diverse chambering options. Still, it makes you wonder if shotshell capable revolvers are simply a fad, or are they here to stay?

  1. I wonder how they managed to exclude chambering of the .454 Casull or the .460 S&W Magnum.

    I wondered about this exact versatility when comparing the .460 and the Judge, but perhaps there are technical issues, we are unaware of.

    Maybe next is an XL with a bi-lock attached comp/muzzle weight to help manage recoil in the more powerful calibers.

    I think I might buy this as is, and hope to support the creation of the next one.
