Smith & Wesson’s Model 460XVR™ has the highest muzzle velocity of any production revolver on earth at 2,100 feet per second. The Model 460XVR™ is so revolutionary that it required an entirely new designation. . . the XVR, X-treme Velocity Revolver.

Performance Center guns originate from standard designs or are created from the ground up. From hand-cutting and fitting to fine-tuning for precision, these firearms are top performers.

Products from the Performance Center are the ultimate expression of old-world craftsmanship blended with modern technology.


The Performance Center 460XVR with a 14-inch barrel and bipod is based on the extra-large X-Frame design. It’s manufactured from stainless steel and has a satin finish. The grips are Hogue monogrip with the S&W logo. The trigger and hammer are chrome finished. And the weapon comes with Performance Center tuned action.


The 14-inch barrel is manufactured from stainless steel and features a muzzle brake to tame the recoil of this monster, and a bipod too!
