Thank you all for the kind words. After about 100 rds through it today I think I have a new favorite revolver.

I need updated pics of my inventory but my wife has the camera and she's out of town. I can add a few though.

Smith 686+, gotta love that 7th shot:



And a 4" 686+:


10-5 snub nose:


And the chief's special, 3":

Whenever I see pictures of them close together, I'm reminded of how much more graceful the Diamondback is than the Python

Interesting observation. I do use the Diamondbacks to introduce firearms to any new shooter, as the balance and size of the 4" seems to be the a good place to start.

A couple test shots - I think I might be getting a little better. Still need to work on lighting. My cell phone doesn't have a lot of settings, but some can make a big difference (as evidenced by the silly gold picture) ... positioning needs work too

S&W 629 Talo after a trip to S&W for the master revolver action package and a set of fixed C&S extreme duty rear sights:




And here are 4 frames of it in action with Nosler 300 grain JHP DoubleTap loads:

Hey Mesinge2,
Did you have to mess with the front sight, after installing that C&S rear sight?

Wanted to put one of those rear sights on my 66 snub, but didn't know if it would mess up my POI/POA?

Nice looking revolver!
