After reading many pages of pro and con reasons used against the S&W manufacturing Co. I wonder why people who fear lock failure just don't remover the lock! Youtube has a number of ways to do that.It seems that no ill effect will result to the revolver. What am I missing in this simple solution?
What you're missing is that many, if not most, of the lock haters deep down hate the lock because of politics or looks more than actual documented problems with it. They resent the lock out of general principle rather than because of actual problems though they often try to blow the very few documented cases of the lock causing problems out of proportion in order to justify their own emotional response.
