Default 357 3 inch question

Does anyone know what 357 magnum revolver with a 3 inch barrel and a minimum 6 shot capacity, still in production, has the shortest overall length? Thanks.

The Smith and Wesson 686 or the Ruger GP100. You could go smaller with a K framed Smith, but they're no longer in production so you would have to buy a used one.

Off hand dont have the specs to compare in front of me to the SW or Ruger, but my Tarus 605 Stainless in 357 is pretty darn short overall but only 5 shot.

Default Awesome but I think the original poster was looking for the shortest overall length.

Overall length of the SW 327 is 7".
