Recently crossed a gun off my bucket list, a 6" prelock 617 with the 10-shot stainless cylinder. Had a similar 4" gun years ago but let it go and have wanted a 6" model for a long time. Should make a great understudy to a pair of 6" 686 models. Shoots pretty good with CCI Mini Mags but will need to dig into my ammo stash and try some different loads with a chronograph. Sounds like a fun range day is in my future. :cool:

Bigdog those are range blocks and speed loaders by Speed Beez. They are spendy but worth it IMO. I have several sets for various J, K and L frame revolvers and am getting ready to order another one.

I had a 4” 617 too. I forget what dash number it was but had the Hillary Hole. Gun shot as well as my 18s. Had aftermarket front Flo sight blade. I don’t like stainless so I traded it off.
