The longer the sight radius the more precise, but the shorter the sight radius the more stable the front sight will be. I you have old eyes like mine and shoot by sense of smell like I do the short one with the fancy sights might be better. Off a sandbag the long barrel wins. Also I seem to recall a 22A with a steel (stainless?,22S?)frame a couple of years ago but the S&W site doesn't list one now.
I got a fever, and the only cure is more guns. Ya wanna go shootin' tomarrow?
