Have you got the 638 confused with the 649 by any chance? I don't see how you could see any difference in weight between a 438 and a 638 when the only difference should be one being blue finish and one being stainless finish. They're both alloy frame. The 649, on the other hand, is an all stainless steel gun, and IS considerably heavier.

I have a 649-2 and like the old style hammer nose among other features.

Model 649-2
