    Where did you get info on this gun? 6 or 7 shot?
    Wonder what the recoil might be like in the larger calibers w/lightweight frame.

    Did you see what the cost on that beauty was. Seems like I read in one of the rags it was upwards to $800+. Would be awsome in 45ACP though.

    45 acp - yep nice .. .44 mag/Scandium ... hmmm ... ouchie!

    Looks good for ''feel'' tho - be good to find someone locally who gets one and wring it out!

    I'm guessing, that can't be an ''N'' frame size but maybe ''L'' frame dimensions.

    Will probably look a lot like my 325PD in the .45ACP version.

    This is the kind of thing that is going to put S&W back in the market. Not that they were OUT, just trailing some. The M&P and now this, pretty innovative. They may hurt, but people are still buying the 340 snubbies aren't they?

    Darn! I've wanted a .45 ACP revolver. What are you trying to do, drain my boat fund?

    I couldn't imagine the recoil/muzzle flip of that chambered in 44mag.

    I'll take mine in .45 and bob that hammer.

    Having fired a titanium Taurus .41 snubby and a S&W 340 with Remmy 125s, I gotta agree with P95Carry, no thanks on the .44. The .357 or .45 sounds real nice!

    That is a darned nice looking gun and being available in .45acp makes it even better. You may have just caused me to add a long missing carry revolver to my list.....
