The 605 has been around much longer. But the 617 is a larger gun so it should absorb the pounding of heavy load for a longer period of time before something breaks.

A better question might be do you want a small frame revolver (the 605) that can be put into a pocket or carried on a belt or a medium-ish frame gun (the 617) that won't work well in a pocket (several members here have them) but would give you more grip to hand on to and more rounds on tap? It all depends on what you are looking for.
