Early DS2 revolvers were close to the older D frames. Later ones used the beefier Magnum Carry topstrap and cylinder. My 3 inch DS2 has the thicker top and a cylinder long enough for 357. If Colt were smart enough to bring these back in 2 ,3 and 4 inch versions ,the competition would be in serious trouble ,and Colt fans would be very happy. Throw in an adjustable sight vent rib version in 22 ,22 mag and 357 ,and viola ,the game is afoot Watson.

If nobody wanted a 357 snub, why the Ruger LCR 357? My feeling is the 357 will probably not be shot with 357 ,but will be strong enough to withstand all 38 plus and plus p plus. a snub 357 does not make a whole lot of sense today except as said to be a strong 38. Buffalo Bore 38 158 lhp out of a 2 inch revolver exceeds all 357s out of the same barrel length , it is even faster than the lighter 140 gr slugs . As to Colt not making da revolvers again ,a few months back I would and did say no, but with the takeover by Colt defense , maybe.

The SF VI, small frame ,v spring , improved, used a slightly different v spring ,a transfer bar ignition and slightly modified internal parts. The barrel was crowned and less tapered than the older D frames , the ejector rod head was a a cast part. The early Sf revolvers had a tendency to light strikes. That was changed on the DS2, along with a heavier firing pin spring. When I bought the 3 inch DS2 , I got it as a shooter for $239. I rounded off trigger and shot it. it was as accurate as any other D frame , I like the 3 inch barrel ,a great packing revolver that will stand up to the heaviest 38 spl loads. Regret not buying a 2 incher ,and if I had seen one , a 4 incher. I may have decreased the collector value by firing it , but I bet that 50 yrs from now , it will be worth more than $239/
