Sorry not the pistols you mentioned but, my 617 after I took hacksaw, files and emory paper to that God awful full under lug. Now she's the perfect woods walker gun.(for me anyway).

I didn't read any of the posts in this thread except for the first one, because I doubt there's anything that was posted that could change what I am about to post.

I will never understand people . . .

Different strokes. If there weren't, S&W would have offered just one .22 LR, one .38, one .357...

Variety is the spice of life. I really like that de-lugged Model 617, S.B.

I think when I get my second 629 done I will make a half lug out of my 617 no dash 6". I like the looks of that Steve.

This is interesting, I was going to ask how many ounces you think you lose by doing so. I would not have guessed so much. Half a lb is pretty dramatic. I do love the full lug on my 629 6 1/2 inch though. Like the look, love how it eats recoil, and I'm more accurate with it than any other handgun I've ever fired. But I also kind of like the idea of customizing your own gun to fit your specific tastes. A lot of work, no doubt, but so is tying your own flies for fishing. Your gun your world.

A handgun is a tool, like a shovel. Why would you cut the handle off?

Sorry, comparing the lug to the a handle on a shovel is apples to oranges.
