PSA: S&W Defective Revolvers

Alphecca has a post regarding defective Smith & Wesson revolvers.

The defects include a 25% failure rate with issues such as failure to go bang when the trigger is pulled and the barrel breaking off.

Be prepared to check your serial number ranges.

This simplifies my April 15th, Buy A Gun Day, decision.

I posted this comment on Alphecca:

I've never had trouble with Smiths.
Maybe they got a bum batch of metal.
Stuff happens in mfg processes sometimes.

2 things to note:
Is this true?
and
Will S and W back their product up (which I'm sure they will).

It is a disturbing story nonetheless.
