The model number 520 was used on two completely different revolvers produced 25 years apart. Since they share the same model number they are represented here as model variants. The first variant was originally designed in 1997 at the request of the New York State Police who were considering changing from the K-frame fixed sight Magnums to a similar gun in the N-frame size. About 3,000 were produced but in the end were not sold to the State Police. They were ultimately offered to the commercial market as the model 520. The second variant was introduced in 2005, and except for its barrel length, overall length and frame finish has nothing else in common with the original model 520. It is a 7-shot revolver built on an L-frame with a titanium cylinder.
