Smith & Wesson Model 460 is a large caliber X-frame revolver by Smith & Wesson chambered for the .460 S&W Magnum cartridge.

Design[edit]

The basic design of the Model 460 is based on the other X-framed revolver, its counterpart, the Smith & Wesson Model 500, a .50 caliber revolver. The gun is distinguished from the Model 460 by the holes at the end of the barrel and the neon factory sights. Aside from the .460 S&W Magnum cartridge, the revolver can also chamber .454 Casull, .45 Colt, and .45 Schofield ammunition. Smith & Wesson states that Model 460 XVR (XVR stands for Xtreme Velocity Revolver) is the highest velocity production revolver, while being the most powerful .45 caliber production revolver in the world, launching a 200 grain bullet at 2,330 feet per second, generating 2,400 ft-lbs of muzzle energy.
