I got one! Model 19, pristine, in the box with all original brochures. Shoots like a dream. Now the hunt's on for a Colt Detective Special.

I personally hate wheelguns with a passion, the ergonomics and geometry seem to have been designed by someone who didn't have human hands.

If I'm going to pick my favorite wheel gun, I might as well go the full route!!
Here goes: A 4" Smith and Wesson .44 Special 1950 Target Model!!

I may never buy another revolver, but if I did it would be a stainless steel N frame S&W with a 5" barrel with the full length shroud or underlug or whatever it is called.

I have a M29 with a 4" barrel (used to carry it for work many years ago). The Chief told me if anyone complained I'd have to stop carrying it. Every now and then someone would comment, "That's a big gun, what is it?" My response was always, "S&W M27, .357 magnum."

Nothing around quite like an accurate S&W .44 magnum.

If I could design my own ideal revolver it would be based on the Night Guards. .357, 8 rounds, 3.5in barrel, and a good set of grips, round butt with finger indents, front sight similar to the Tru Glo TFO's only smaller more suited for the revolver.

I would still love to get my hands on a Night Guard though, always loved them and never got around to getting one.

Hardchromed, or

I concur. Nothing beats a 3" K frame for social situations. I have a manga ported 3" 66 and picked up a 3" 65 LS last year. Love the bead blast finish - hate the super gay Lady Smith laser engraving. I taught myself how to do action jobs on S&W's on that 65 and it is sweet! Now to bob the hammer . . .
