I love the concept of this revolver (and think it would have been perfect with a 3.5" barrel) and would like to pick one up (so I can add a 3.5" barrel). However I keep looking at the topstrap, specifically the part where they milled it out to fit the novak, and it just looks way thin.
For regular shooting I realize this is probably academic, but on a gun whos biggest selling point is its near indestructibility, does anyone else think that removing this much metal from such a high stress area could be a liability for either frame stretching or worse in the unlikely event someone wasn't careful with a reload?
