In the firearms world, there's a major factor we like to...

Don't balk at a snub nose .357 unless you are super recoil sensitive. I've got close to a dozen .357s and a couple .38s. Many of them are equipped with 2", 2 - 1/2" & 3" (snub nose) barrels.

My Dad scoped his for the same reason. . . although I've scoped one of my primary AKs and had great results past 200-300 yards. Can't give you a group size, but the gongs went "thump" about 10-15%...

Duracoat isn't as bad as it sounds. I've used a few times on various parts and one AK. The AK came out great! An old grill can be used to speed up the curing. No oven needed. Just set it to super low...
