I own a vintage 6 Model 19 and it is a work of art. The current S&W offerings are ugly and cheap looking. I especially dislike the lawyer lock and cheap looking wood grips. For regular range use a Ruger GP100 is a much better choice.

I would also like to get a vintage Model 29, but it would have to be a vintage one. Ill pass on the current offerings.

The few times I have glanced at other S&W revolvers on other frame sizes, I come away thinking "there's nothing as sexy as the N-frame." I know some will disagree but others will get it.

Even though I am not a revolver guy per se, I find myself desiring a .44 Magnum revolver ...
I love the N frames too. After a expensive divorce where 50% of my guns went away. I kept a 27-2 (357) 29-3 (44 Mag) and 25-5 (45 Colt) all four inchers. My favorite size.

Only nicer 44Mag is a Dan Wesson.
Don't ask how many guns I own, I lost count.
