Default Smith & Wesson 586 Classic Blue 4" & DOJ roster

The 2012 release of the S&W 586 Classic 4" Blue Steel 6 shot revolver is a beautiful weapon, albeit it with side gun lock, firing pin off the hammer, etc.

The DOJ roster lists the 586-7 as being compliant and on their roster. The 586-7 was the seventh variant of the 586 and according to Wikipedia the dash 7 had a 7 shot cylinder, I believe that is coincidence.

The new 2012 586 Classic 6 shot is stamped 586-8 on the frame. I assume that means you can't buy one in Calfornia. How does CA DOJ deal with this since the 686-6 a six shot stainless version of the gun is on the roster? Shoud I ask them? Did Smith forget to file this 586 Classic in California or opted not to pay the money for the drop test?

Any authoritative answer would be appreciated, I used to carry a Model 19 almost 40 years ago, and the 586 would fill a sentimental bill.
