S&W Model 69 talk

Seems like a good gun for carry and use with .44 special, but you don't have to worry if you load it a little hot. I always thought the 696 was interesting but I didn't think it would be suitable for hot loads. Well maybe there is a difference in the materials of the 69 vs 696 but apparently there is no problem with the size.

I had a wild idea on time to build "the perfect carry gun" as they say. There was a limited edition 686 available with 5" non-underlug barrel. If you could get one of those barrels, have it rebored to .44 special, and mounted to a 696... But then S&W builds almost that exact thing, just with slightly shorter barrel.
