Default 686 Pro Questions

Okay, my 686 plus pro is a round butt and both the back and top straps are smooth. Is that normal on the pro series 686 plus?

Those are smooth and you don't see the ribs on top. I noticed this from the Pro series ....
Is this what you mean?

Okay, think you.
Why did Smith and Wesson make these in round instead of square?

The RB might be lighter. I'm assuming if they took material out of the barrel to make it lighter, it may be a reason. (Slab sided models) I think all L frames now made are RB.
