Rumors are flying around on the internet about the newest competition revolver, the Smith & Wesson 929 Performance Center. Right now, the only evidence of its existence is this youtube video:
If the video is authentic, here’s what we’re looking at: this will be The Gun for USPSA revolver once the rule change to allow 8-shot revolvers scoring minor goes into effect. An 8-shot revolver from the Performance Center chambered in 9mm would absolutely be the heat for USPSA, especially for matches at the state and Area level.
I would say that the video looks genuine, it’s on S&W’s official channel, and the person appearing in the video is actually an S&W employee. I’d be pretty confident that this is the genuine article, and that this gun will be making a floor appearance at SHOT Show. If it does, I’ll make sure to get the inside scoop from S&W about it!
