Smith & Wesson 3566
The Smith & Wesson 3566 was a limited run target pistol, chambered in the proprietary .356 TSW (9x21.5 mm) cartridge. The .356 TSW cartridge was created for Team S&W (hence the "TSW" name) to be used in IPSC and USPSA matches, and the 3566 was created to fire this cartridge. The .356 TSW is roughly a .357 SIG in terms of power and was intended for limited division competition. Unfortunately, rule modifications addressing its use quickly made it obsolete. Produced only in 1993, the 3566 pistols are Lew Horton Performance Center exclusives and only a few hundred were ever produced. The 3566 is quite rare and is highly desired by collectors. Some of the improvements of the 3566 include a match grade barrel, titanium barrel bushing, matte blue and hand rubbed stainless finish, oversized frame rails, adjustable trigger, hand-fitted slide and barrel, adj. Bo-Mar sights, checkered front strap and an extended magwell.
