Hmmm...dull matte finish. I hope they'll eventually offer a green fiber optic front sight as well as red.

And a semi-polished stainless finish like the S&W Model 60 used to have would also be welcome.

The Gun Digest review was written by some guy I've never heard of, who admitted that he has scant experience with revolvers. This may be why he didn't discuss the cylinder timing issue. I hope the new gun has an action of Colt's later style or a refinement. The old traditional Colt action that dates from the early 1900's has a rep for going out of time quickly.

Colt once made a cheaply finished version of the Agent. I guess it sold to people who just wanted a reliable .38 snub and didn't want to pay for appearances. This gun seems to appeal to that market.
