While I don't own a 65 myself, I've had the opportunity to shoot my fathers stainless on several occasions. For the money it seems to be a very nice revolver. The lock up is good, the weight is proportionate to the caliber and the fit and finish is on par with my 608. What I didn't like were the fixed sights and rather small (I have long fingers) grips. Once I figured out my POA with the fixed sights it was very accurate out to 15 yards. Past that I can't see the target anyway!!! Good value for the money. If the sights are a big deal you might try looking at the Rossi 971 or 972.
