It's a six shot snub .38 spl, all steel. It fills a 'niche' that seems to have been missing for quite some time. I like J-frames: but the 5 shot capacity can be an issue.
If the materials and execution is on a par with current J-frames, I think it'll be a real hit. The absence of the key-hole lock will boost it's popularity as well.
I think it could be a great option for female shooters, new shooters, and advanced shooters who want a 'more capable' .38 that is still concealable. 25 ounces makes it just heavy enough to be a range gun in .38 spl, and light enough for all day comfortable carry.
