    All ya;ll S&W Management, Production and Bean Counter Types:

    What do I want in my next S&W revolver?

    How about.......I'm thinking....Give a guy a break........This isn't easy you know......Oh Yeah - how about:
    N-Frame
    Mdl. 58 profile
    K-Frame grip size (Hey you guys did this with the X frame!)
    TENIFER finished AMERICAN STEEL: for extreme scratch resistance and corrosion resistance.
    Fixed Rear sight - wide enough to see a generous amount of light around the front sight in the notch. - Hey this is a Serious Revolver!
    Dovetail front sight with screw lock to hold seting.
    Multiple height front sights available
    Tough plastic "try-post" front sights to make ordering the right front sight easy.
    No MIM action parts. Forged steel. That even sounds reliable!
    .44 Magnum - big enough to do the job, small enough to wear
    No loud ports!!
    4 inch barrel - Remember, the operative word is wear, as in a holster, all day even!
    Smooth action - not light - but smooth!!!
    Cylinder, barrel throat, and barrel grooves set up to get along with each other - I want this one ready to go now! See the next line.
    Polished bore with no high spots - Yeah, I like those big, flat nose, hard cast, heat treated, bone crushing, "I seen the light" - all the way through bullets!
    Best of the best in a rugged, speed loadin', general purpose power tool - for the - backwoods, swamps and Washington D.C.! (Sorry - couldn't resist that one)
    Can you guys pull this off for say around $1500.00 Retail-- I have faith in ya'll !
    Well guys, think you can pull it off? Drop a line back to me!
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    I'm waiting!...........Still waiting!.............Did they even read this?.........Just like the Army!...........................

    ....Yawn__Stretch......Hey! where's my remote!!!?........'Member, we got lots'a patience in LA !!!...................

    ..................They know'd it all along .......-......... Yes Sir! Those Proud Letters Stand For LOWER ALABAMA!.........

    .................................................. .........Just what'd you think LA mean't? .................................................. .....................................

    ..................... Al'right - I know some o' 'dem Cajuns....... -...............- honest mistake .................................................. ............

    Make it: 3", 4", and 5" barrel lengths. I'd buy the 3" and 5" versions.

    And, no, they don't care.

    Mine is easy, Take a 581 and shorten the barrel to 3", put in a dovetailed Gold bead front sight 1/10" wide, remove the shroud, round butt it and there you have it, the model 58s little brother.
    To match take a 586 with a 6" barrel and shorten it to 5" put a 1/10 wide gold bead front sight and remove the underlug, round butt it and I am done.

    Your best bet is to build your own. Everything you mentioned (except the fixed sight frame) can be done aftermarket. You can even approximate the fixed sights with what I consider to be a better option: the C&S Extreme Duty version. I don't know why you would prefer Tenifer to plain stainless, but different strokes, etc.

    Mine is a 629-4 that sports a 3" barrel:
