S&W has two scandium .44 mags now. Does anyone have experience with the newer one? While its barrel is significantly shorter, it's listed as being heavier, probably because of the stainless cylinder. It seems to me that the two guns fill different roles: the original is a packable .44 mag that often gets used for fishing & hiking, while the snub version strikes me as more of a .44 spl defensive gun that can also shoot mangums.
There's always pleasant talk on here about the 4" 329 on this forum, and I'm curious about how the new snubby version stacks up before choosing whether to buy a scandium.
