I've admired that particular model for some time. I like the edgy styling - the slab sided barrel, squared off muzzle, angled underlug and the window for the ejector rod. I know it's not very traditional and not everyone likes it but I do and I appreciate that S&W is willing to let their designers explore a different take on revolver styling while still sticking to the mechanics of the platform.
That particular model was the inspiration for this GP100 I did a couple of years ago.
I pretty much ripped off that S&W 686 SSR plus a little from Gemini. But imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?
