The legal staff of Gibson & Keith, PLLC, is soliciting information as to persons injured by the barrel-cylinder gap blast of the Smith & Wesson 460 XVR revolver. Below is a high-speed photograph of the 460 being fired, and which graphically shows the power of the B-C gap blast of the 460 which has been stated to be about double the B-C gap blast of high powered revolvers like the 357 and 44 magnum revolvers.
The power of this B-C gap blast has actually amputated parts of hands of shooters who have advanced their free hand up under the trigger guard to support and steady this relatively heavy (approx. 6 lbs.) weight of this gun.
Information is also being solicited as to persons injured by the B-C gap blast of similarly powered revolvers manufactured by other gun makers.
