WOW! THAT'S FANTASTIC. The question is, If I were to get another S&W revolver to compliment my 357, which one should I get? 44 Mag, Nickel version of the 27 but in 4 inch??? Ugh..so many beauties

Number of ways to go. A common theme is all barrel lengths of a certain model. Or an example of all the N frames. Or maybe .357, .41 & .44 magnums. Or maybe go for an example of J, K, L & N frames.

Kinda rough in Kalifornistan. If it's not already here it's a bit of a PITA to get what ya want and we usually pay more than Free States people. :(

You won't be able to stop with just one :43:...but if you absolutely have to pick "just one", I'd be inclined to get another classic, such as:



4",5" or 6" Model 10 (the "M&P") - fixed sights, .38 Special
Any Model 29
A K38 (later called the Model 14)
a K22 -- a .22LR version of the K38.

What Fishslayer suggests is what got me into trouble....I'm not even a "serious" collector and I wound up with "I really oughta geta Model 66 to complement my N-frames....." which turned into "I really need to get a 3" Model 66 to fill the gap between my 2.5" Model 19 and my 4" 66".

Yup... I needed another .357 like I needed a hole in the head. But when I saw this P&R M66 no dash my first thought was "Stainless P&R don't show up every day. GOTTA have it to go with my M686 no dash...":(

And I am VERY far from being a "collector."

S&W can be hard on the wallet...

EDIT: That's flouro orange Krylon on the M66, not a RR front sight.
