I've heard a lot about failures in Smith and Wesson locks, but I don't know if I buy into it. I guess a really light titanium gun in a heavy .357 load, I might could see it, though. The recoil forces are in line with the action of the lock on a Smith. They are 90 degrees perpendicular on the Taurus. I don't know that, if I wanted a Smith, I'd let the lock get in my way, put it that way. But, it does have a FUGLY hold in the side of it.

I've lost the key to my 85, never locked it. My old M66s were pre-lock.
