Got the 3" and 5". Haven't come across the 7" yet. The 5" balances great!

Default My 6" ia litte...........

My 6" is a little long for me, but there's no problems with it. It's a great range shooter and would be good for hunting.

I didn't know the -4 came in these barrel lengths. I have two -4+ models, and 2.5 and a 4 inch. I love all the L frames.

The three inch -4 is totally factory.... The other two were project guns, taking later barrels and transplanting them on -4 guns.....

Both the 5" and 7" sport non-factory grips, sights and finishes....

These are examples of what the factory should have made....

Having a 586L comp I thought I better have a stainless to keep it company and bought a Talo version to keep it company. I am in love with both these 3" firearms and now carry one of the two regularly at work as an instructor/RSO. I gets a lot of comments about being "old school", then I just reach into my top front shirt pocket and pull out my one one round. (a visual that will go over most here under 50 years old)
