It was announced early in the year. Periodic calls to S&W re it's availability were met with 'soon' and 'check back'. Production finally commenced early this month. Mine, with it's shot case dated 11-10-10, is finally sitting on my desk having been purchased this AM and shot over 160 times before going home for lunch today. It likes my cheap WallyWorld Federal 550/$16 ammo, hitting coincident POI/POA at 12 yd out of the box. The red HiViz front sight made acquiring the small steel plates easy for my 'mature' eyes. The DA trigger is quite good - reasonable in required effort and smooth. Hard to tell the difference between this one and my 5" 63, which I tweaked a bit when I got it over a year ago. Here it is with my 5" 63 & 4" 617 for size comparison:

Here is the 5" 63, actually a 63-4, and the new 3" 63, a 63-5:

I have much to be thankfull for this year - this new 3" 63 being one 'thing' I am thankfull for, of course. I am most thankfull for the many good friends and relatives I have. Happy Thanksgiving!
