View Full Version : Pre-lock revolver?

OK, I've been trying to figure out what is the difference between a "pre-lock" revolver and one that isn't? How do I tell the difference by looking at the gun?

Thanks you guys!

For S&Ws wheelguns, 'pre-lock' means there's no little keyhole on the left side above/near the cylinder latch.

Thanks Bill. I should have known it was something simple. I thought it had to do with the cylinder lock!
