Smith & Wesson this week announced the newest member of the all stainless-steel X-frame revolver family, a seven-shot .350 Legend wheel gun complete with a 7.5-inch ported barrel.

The new S&W Legend Model 350 is a flat-out beast, running over a foot long (13.5 inches) and with an unloaded weight of 71.5 ounces. However, it is the first production revolver that delivers the ability to run the new .350 Legend cartridge from a handgun while utilizing moon clips for loading and unloading from its fluted cylinder.

It joins other beefy X-frames, including Model 460 and Model 500, so named as they are built to accommodate the .460 S&W Magnum and .500 S&W Magnum, respectively.

"The 350 Legend is one of the flattest-shooting straight-walled cartridges on the market today," said John Myles, S&W's senior manager of new products. "It is great for medium-sized game and especially whitetail hunting. If you’re looking for a hunting revolver, the Model 350 is it."
