    I like mine. Will by another if I find one. When I find another, I will see if I can find someone to put the 3 inch barrel I have on it. My current one is to accurate to mess with the barrel.

    I have one with a 3" barrel, and it's my favorite revolver.

    Historical context for you younger guys:

    Re: Smython (aka Smolt)

    Once upon a time (1980's) it was somewhat popular to mate a Colt Python barrel to a S&W K frame. The concept developed out of PPC competitions. S&W did not like this very much, and this is one of the reasons S&W developed the L frame. There were also Python barrels mounted to Rugers, these were known as "Cougars".
