The imposing Smith & Wesson Governor is a three-model lineup. Each version is a 6-round Z-frame revolver that can handle .410 2-1/2” shot shell, .45 ACP and .45 Colt loaded simultaneously in the same cylinder. Each is double-action/single-action (DA/SA), measures 8.5” in overall length and has a 2.75” long barrel. Weight is fairly lightweight for the gun’s size and comes in at 29.6 ounces, which is under two pounds.

Each Governor comes standard with a pair of 6-round and three 2-round .45 ACP moon clips.

The standard all matte black model has a Tritium Night sight dovetailed into the front, a fixed sight in back and a textured black synthetic grip that has finger recesses along the front. Textures include raised cobblestones on some grips and the raised sideways oval pattern on others.

The frame is made of Scandium alloy while the long-fluted cylinder is made of stainless steel. Both are given a matte black finish. By the way, Scandium alloy is light, tough and very hard. It’s also rare and expensive, so the fact that Smith & Wesson uses it in their guns makes them very special. It’s used in aerospace especially by MiG in aircraft like their MiG-29 Fulcrum fighter. But it is this alloy that helps keep the gun at its relatively light 29.6 ounce weight.

Next is the matte silver model. The matte silver is a finish atop the Scandium alloy frame. This model has a black blade front ramp sight but is otherwise the same.

The third model is the same as the first except it has a Crimson Trace Lasergrip that emits a red laser. The grip also has a different contour, eschewing the rounded contour of its two siblings in favor of one that is toed.

Smith & Wesson has been in business well over 150 years. It brings heritage, experience and other tangible and intangible qualities to each of its guns.
