Maybe its time for a new Model 317 thread? I've had mine about a month now. 400 rounds of CCI Mini Mags have passed through it. Accuracy is very acceptable. For me this took a lot of patience in the beginning. I'm not used to a revolver that weighs so little but the proof was when I rested the firearm on a support. The trigger pull is excellent in my opinion reflecting the usual quality experienced in other Smith and Wessons revolvers. Tolerances of the chambers is tight and cleaning seems necessary after 100 rounds. My picture should illustrate the adjustable rear sight. The front is carbon fibre style.
