Hello Scott
I had one. It was very ammo Fussy and did not like the Polimer tipped ammo because the speed of it kept Cluttering up the lands of the bore with Burnt Plastic. I feel it's demise was lack of good ammo back when it was released and S&W stopped making it do to accuracy issues. It did not group any tighter than any of my K-22's and the ammo was very pricey to just sit there and enjoy it. Mine liked the solid tipped CCI ammo and Grouped decent with it. Here's a Picture of the one I had for awhile... Hammerdown

Hammerdown,
Thanks for the response. I've found a lot of folks were not to happy with them.
I was hoping to find something "different" that shot well.
I think I may avoid the urge to purchase a 647.
BTW- what grips did you have on yours? The look great.
Take Care,
Scott

I have one and it shoots great. Mine will put 5 shots into 1-1/2" at 100 yards with a 6X scope.
