    I sometimes carry a S&W 4516. It is smaller version of your gun. 3.5 in barrel, flat hammer, double action. Recoil certainly manageable and it puts out a lot of lead. Mine is SS and I have had no problems with it.

    Great pistol. I had one when they first came onto the market. Never had a complaint about the one I had. John

    Does this one have the spherical knob on the end of the barrel? I forget.
