Capsule Review: Smith & Wesson Bone Collector

The Smith & Wesson Bone Collector has a barrel about as long as Ana Hickmann’s legs, and fires cartridges about the size of her big toe. Brick house or no brick house, if the Big Bad Wolf had one of these he would have dined on pork for a month. The trigger is very smooth, but since the main spring is as long as a rubber baby buggy bumper, the pull takes a while in DA mode. Based on my experience, it takes more time to stage this trigger than it would to stage The Cherry Orchard. In SA, trigger pull is as light and crisp as Far Niente chardonnay, and that’s the way I chose to shoot. In either SA or DA mode, recoil is surprisingly non-punishing. Muzzle rise is something else, however; this beast flips like a Vegas trapeze act.
