Default New S&W Model 386 - .357mag

Okay I know that the scandium/aluminum framed revolvers are not too popular around these parts, but last year I picked up a S&W 38sp Bodyguard (the revolver one with the Insight laser) and have really been pleased - so I decided to pick up another aluminum framed S&W....

Model 386 - 6" barrel - .357mag
Fiber optic front sight - adjustable rear
Haven't shot it yet - hopefully this weekend.

What do you wheelgun guys think - did I do okay or will it give me problems? Cylinder lockup is good and tight now (I know it's brand new though).

Looks nice! I have a s&w 642 .38 and it is scandium I think. Never had any issues.
