I have two model 29s and one Redhawk. The Smiths are 6 inch the Redhawk is a blue 5.5.
The Smiths are stock and the trigger on the Ruger has been worked on.
I like all of them and would be hard pressed to pick a "better" gun. I shoot factory and handloads in all of them.
I never could shoot a SBH and have had three of them. The double action guns are pretty good and a little work on the Redhawk trigger is a plus.
I won't be getting rid of any of them.
