Hi,

I'm trying to decide between the 5-rd and 7-rd 357 revolvers. When doing a search at Bud's Gun Shop, I see that they had listed (at one time, but now out of stock) concealed-hammer 617s in blue (617CHB2) and stainless (617CHSS2).

I've been leaning towards the 617s for the extra capacity, though I'm a bit concerned about concealability vs the 650s. The Taurus site makes no mention of a hamerless 617, as far as I can tell.

Does anyone have any experience with the hammerless 7 rounders? Were they pulled off the market by Taurus? If so, why? Anywhere they can still be found? I'm thinking that a hammerless 7-rd 357 would be the best of all worlds (at least for me).

Thanks in advance for any input. Working nights, so it's off to bed...

John

I was hoping to carry in a pocket holster. I usually wear something with cargo pockets; even so, a 617 (with or without hammer) might be a little much. I guess I'll just have to track one down and put it to the test.

If funding weren't an issue, though, the proper solution would be to...wait for it....GET BOTH!

Thanks for all of the replies!

John
