It is definitely a more tactical looking gun but the weight and balance fell good. What is the take on the accuracy of the 4" barrel vs the 5.5" models? This would be mainly a steel challenge/range toy.
I have an alloy framed 4"-er and an all steel 5"-er. No perceptible difference in practical accuracy. Hard pressed to choose I'd go for steel. Sounds like a good one to me.
The flash suppressor is for the show. All it does is trap dirt, and possibly make the gun muzzle-heavier. But it is removable, and muzzle caps are available.
