"There are reportedly fewer Unregistered Magnums than Registered Magnums, but that extra little touch of elegance is still preferred."
That is true. S&W had to shut down production of the Magnums and most of the other revolvers in thier line to concentrate on fulfilling their initial commitment to the British (wow, would those have been pre-Model 10 pre-Victory models?) in compensation for the Light Rifle fiasco.
