The current smith 69 2.75 inch is a great 44 special. Lighter than some, but not too light, and not very big. Great for carrying, for any purpose, ccw/woods/hunting backup. The specials make it very easy for quick follow up shots.

What really makes it shine, is the ability to use 44 mag. Makes it a little more versatile. I was pleased to find the recoil is very similar to a mountain revolver. I was expecting more snap, as it is a lighter/smaller frame. Not something I would pick/prefer to shoot 100+ magnum rounds through at a time, but they are somewhat manageable.

Not necessarily what the op was asking, but it is a great 44 special choice. Slightly smaller than the 696, and with a thicker forcing cone.

CDNN has a GP-100 Ruger 5 inch in 44 spl (5 shot) unfluted for 499.00-I bought one recently-a very nice gun at a great price. I'm a fan of the venerable 44 Spl-I have a 2 1/2 bulldog-a 4 inch model 441 Taurus, and now the 5 inch GP-100. I sent the Ruger to TK Custom to get it cut for moon clips and chamfering. All set.

I've always liked my 3" Mod 24-3. It came with the finger groove RB combat grips, which don't fit my hand, so I modified a set of rosewood grips to fit as RB to SB conversion. It carries well in a Simply Rugged pancake holster.
