You sir have very good taste in revolvers.
I picked one of these up a few years ago and it quickly became one of my favorites. Mine is also a square-butt 4", but the wood grips were a little beat up, and I really didn't like the feel of them in my hand, so I replaced them with some Pachmayers I had kicking around. I judge hanguns by how well "I" can hit with them. I have many .22 pistols of all shapes and sizes and this one is second only to my early 70's production S&W Model 41 in terms of accuracy.
But it's smaller and lighter than the 41, so the 41 goes mostly to the range and the camp, while the 63 goes into the woods on my hip.
I'll never sell mine. I suggest you do the same.
