    just received mine in 2.75" barrel.
    It is so very smooth and very easy to load the cylinder from double action to make it single action once everything is staged. Staging mine is a breeze.!!
    I have maybe 100 rounds through it.
    I didn't like the slick wood grips - so I wrapped some Wilson Tennis rubber Grip tape on it and see if it might make a difference.
    Such a suhweeeet shooter and so light recoil in 38 Special.
    Awesome iron.

    I have bought such barrel couple of months ago. I can agree with you that it is really easy to load. And it is really cool. I like it

    What length barrel 4.2 or 5.5 would you get? I wonder which would be in more demand many years to come?
    5.5 would probably just be a safe queen except for an occasional range trip. To long of a barrel perhaps to be a regular carry. Not exactly a light gun either to be carrying all day.

    LOL But I guess if I can carry this 20 lb belly shed around all day then what would a more couple pounds make a difference.
