I carried a 3" square butt Chiefs Special for years and like the gun, but unless one is in near new condition, $500 is too much, IMHO. (Note, there are two types of square butt; one is square butt steel, the other a round butt with the stocks made to fill the butt out into a square shape. I referred to the latter which is, again IMHO, the better arrangement.)
Rather than just edit the post, I will add:
Oh boy, I blew that, writing "latter" when I meant "former". I much prefer the full steel grip over the wood "filler".
