Does anybody own both? i am wanting to see how tall each one is. I know that the 617 is similiar to my tracker 627. if anyone would be willing to measure for me that would be great.

Hold on and let me go get the camera..........

What you see here is a Tracker 627 and a M85UL. The Tracker is built on the compact frame like the 617, but has a 4" barrel. The M85UL is the same size for all intents and purposes as the 605.







I used to think the 627 was a small gun until I got my 85. Now I feel like I am carrying a hand cannon when I pick up the 627.

I like to carry my 617 IWB and my 605 week side back pocket. 2 / 7 shot Speed Loaders in right front pocket for 617 and 2 Speed Strips in left front pocket for the 605. I have never read or herd of a privet citizen needing any more firepower than that.

Funny, that's exactly why I bought the 605. :D

I think some of these pepole watch too much TV. They think they are going to stand out in the open arms locked in a Clasic Weaver Stance and blase away with 20 rounds of ammo then slap in another mag and keep shooting. I have never had the need to use a firearm to save myself and hope I never do. The two people that I do know and every story I have read about Self Defence shooting, Nobody ran out off ammo and died. I have read a few stories ware they did go to a backup gun to end a problem. I am not talking about a Duty Cop, I'm refering to the average Joe.

I, too, bought the 605 because it was small, therefore easy to carry and conceal.

And I agree with Dave, except that as a former LEO I did have the rare occasion to use a firearm and hope I never have to do so again. More to the point, most potential perps tend to look elsewhere when they realize you've got a gun.

But it never hurts to carry a speedloader or a speedstrip. If you practice, practice, practice reloading it pretty much obviates the need to carry a backup gun, and perhaps just as fast as going for the backup.
