That’s what I mean. I am sure the modern polymers and steel can handle it but the gun is not necessarily designed for it, meaning optimal operator use is standard pressure but with 357 revolvers, it is slightly different. I know someone with an airlite 357 and it seems crazy to me.Well not really though. Almost all new .38 special revolvers today are rated for +P. Mine is. The main issue is many new snubbies are airweights, which makes the recoil horrendous for the most hot rounds. They aren't even that bad for the basic +P rounds, although it's certainly stout recoil. But, having fired about 20 of the Buffalo Bore +P out of my airweight, that is very heavy recoil.
