Hey all, still new to the site but thought I'd share what brought me here. I had been wanting a snubbie in a .357 but wasn't sure if I wanted to get a poly or not. As luck would have it I happen to go into my lgs just planning to window shop and there it sat, between an 82 service and a judge, I likely would have passed it up if not for the bobbed hammer, then I saw the ports on it and decided I had to have it. To be honest I haven't had time to get to the range yet but I suspect it will do just fine. So here is my new 2003 model 617 CIA with ported barrel. Oh, also just ordered a theis holster for it.

I have 10 Taurus® revolvers and my Mdl 617SS2 (non-ported & conventional hammer) is my absolute favorite. My gun is also from 2003 & I have over 9000+ rounds through it. It's a GREAT GUN!

Still haven't gotten a chance to shoot her, been a busy weekend (trying to find a new grill). What holsters does everyone use? As I mentioned I ordered a Theis IWB, but looking for something outside as well, I picked up a Looper K-frame holster that is just a lil' snug, likely due to the cylinder. It draws easily enough but reholstering has to go in at the right angle, so I am just keeping it in thre for now to see if it will reshape itself a bit.

When I purchased this 617 awhile ago the seller included this holster and a few HKS Speedloaders in the deal. Altho its not tactical-cool, the holster holds the 617 snuggly whether I have the Crimson Trace laser grips or standard grips installed.

Its a Hunter Holster Model 1100-29, and has a belt loop on backside.

Thanks guys, really looking forward to seeing how she shoots with those ports in it, but need that holster first. Was really surprised that I couldn't find that many online.
It's a "K" frame size, but the big 7 round cylinder and deep trigger guard mess up the holster equation. Good luck. I had the titanium ported version, and now have the SS non ported. It's a hell of a gun, and the ports DO help. So do those Ribber grips!
