Happy New Year!

Kinda on the fence right now purchasing the 396 NG as my first 2010 buy. Currently CC a CA .44 spl in my right front pocket and need to know if the NG 396 in a K- frame size with the bobbed hammer would aslo fit in my pocket. To clear up any concerns, I prefer the .44 spl caliber (Speer 200 GDHP) as my caliber of choice.

To be honest, really eye balling the 629 3 inch comp carry, but can't justify paying the steep ticket for a safe queen. I would want to CC carry the 629, but being a N-frame and almost 40 oz's, that's a bit large for my #1 method of carry (pocket carry).

Any 396 or NG owners who could provide feedback

thanks!

Yeah, I have viewed that S&W site many times. What I gather is that the NG is just a tad heavier and longer than the CA.

My problem is trying to determine the size of a K frame revolver. All I k ow is that it's S&W's small to medium frame revolver.

Well you asked for the specs. It seems the NG weighs 24.2 Oz. Pretty heavy for pocket carry IMO. For pocket carry you're better off looking at J Frame revolvers.
