    I can't stand the locks on the Smiths. The Ruger has a safety billboard on the barrel, but at least you can polish that off.

    There are speed loaders available for the 617.
    Speed beez and DS10 are two companies.

    Any chance you remember the price?

    I just picked up a 4" S&W 617 after a long period of looking for one. Only shot it once, but my first impression just brings a smile to my face. Same size and weight as the 686 so this shoots like a pellet pistol and just makes you laugh that a round actually went off. My wife shot it and again, just smiles after shooting the G19.
    I prefer S&W to the Ruger, it's an old seated thing in my head that has zero real bearing.
    Can't go wrong and enjoy shooting it.
    If you want to try to meet for you to shoot mine next week you are more than welcome to shoot it.

    I have one of the first 10 shot 617's (aluminum cylinder) with a 6" barrel...Love the gun, but I hardly ever shoot it...I have more fun with my 3" model 63

    is it a 4 or 6 inch? I have the 4 inch and love it! One of the best revolvers I have.
    I don't shoot .22 often but when I do I shoot a S&W 617! Lol!!

    Nice! Use it well. I have a S&W 686 4" barrel, made for a US Customs large purchase in the late 80's - they let a few go to the LGS's before they destroyed the rest, and it was the third gun I ever owned. Honestly, it looks as nice as the day I got it, the trigger is incredible, and I wouldn't give it up for anything. I absolutely feel like it is a "family member" and it will go to my kid, because I will still own it when I kick the bucket. You made a nice move!

    You've convinced me to go with the Smith. Anyone know of any locally in stock?

    I agree with Coliseum Guns; you'll be glad that you got the S&W.

    Either are well made. The trigger in the S&W is smoother and a bit lighter.

    I shot a friends S&W. It was a lot of fun. A little tiresome loading those little 22LR rounds but it was fun none the less.

    You won't go wrong with either of those choices. That being said, get the Smith.
