Smith & Wesson question

I recently heard that the parts for the Smith & Wesson Revolvers are made in China. Is this true?

If they are, my vintage S&W collection just went up in value!

But in all seriousness, there is no way S&W has its parts made in China. If they did something like that, everyone would jump on the Ruger bandwagon and almost no one would ever forgive S&W.

I know some folks, myself included, are dissatisfied with the quality of current S&W's but I don't think they'd go that far. Might as well though.

While I don't doubt that that day is coming, currently no, it is NOT true.

No, and I hope it never happens.

I've purchased several new S&W pistols and all have been excellent quality. Let's not get all carried away slamming excellent revolvers.
