I also have a 441. I am just saying the difference between the felt recoil in the steel guns and the Ultralites is appreciable. And this is coming from a guy who is a big fan of the .44 Special. I also don't think it is strictly a weight issues, as the 445 UL is about 2-3 oz. heavier than my Bulldogs, but the Bulldogs are more comfortable to shoot. I think the rubber grips abrading on my hand are the most uncomfortable thing about the UL.
