    3 inches is close enough.

    Personally I say 2.5 inches on a compact frame is the longest/biggest you can call a snub. As for things like the 686 with a 2.5" barrel, I call that a short barreled revolver.

    I can see myself getting a .357 with a 3" barrel some day. I need something to bridge that gap between compact and full sized.

    That's a sick assortment of hardware everybody. I'd love a big bore snub.

    Since I have N-Frame S&Ws these are the snubbies of the group.

    AWESOME.

    Would you be so kind as to identify the model numbers? I'm most curious what that one in the bottom right with the unfluted cylinder is.

    Of course. It's so easy.

    Is real ivory even legal any more?

    Euclidean

    Any existing domestic supplies of preban elephant ivory already in the United States (predating the import/export ban) is legal to buy, sell, trade, & use.
    No new ivory can enter into the US or be exported out of the US.
    Basically the United States is forever out of the World Trade Loop of elephant ivory. I still have some very old, antique ivory & I've been using that.
    So whatever remaining domestic ivory is used for whatever purpose in no way affects the African elephant population.
    When whatever elephant ivory that is already here is all used up then everybody will switch to using mammoth and mastodon ivory...I guess & there are countless tons of that still locked in the permafrost.

    That specific one is a S&W Model 610 in 10mm or 40 S&W. From the top moving clockwise 696 (44 spcl), 27 (357 mag), 610 (10mm or 40 S&W), 629 (44 mag), and 624 (44 spcl).

    The Model 27 is actually a 3.5 inch barrel, but that is as short as they came from the factory for that model. The 696 is really an L-Frame and is a 5 shot revolver. It's just a bit smaller than the N-Frame.
