The gun is heavy but not uncomfortably so. I was afraid that the 6” barrel with be nose heavy but I think it balances very well. The double action pull is heavy but smooth and single action feels great. I haven’t had to chance to check both on the trigger gauge. My plan is for some nice wood grips and a Vortex Venom sight. A range report as soon as the South Mississippi weather permits.

I’m not a professional photographer so forgive the poor lighting and lack of originality.

Altamont has some great grips and very reasonable prices. Look at ebay for Ahrends grips- family shop and really nice fit- from my experience.
