About the Smith & Wesson Model 500
S&W Model 500/Hand Cannon
The Smith & Wesson Model 500 is a five-shot, double/single action large-caliber revolver produced by Smith & Wesson, firing the .500 S&W Magnum cartridge, a .50 caliber bullet.
The S&W 500 is built on Smith and Wesson’s largest frame, the X-Frame, which was developed because none of S&W’s existing double-action frame designs could handle the muzzle energy and pressures generated by the .500 S&W cartridge. It is one of the most powerful production revolvers in the world today and is marketed as “the world’s most powerful handgun” by the manufacturer.
