S&W 6" fixed sight .357 Magnun

A friend has gone through all his references, and asked me to post the question here.

Has S&W ever made a 6" fixed sight .357 Magnum?

I know several were done with 4" or less, maybe some 5"s? Cannot find any mention of any 6"s.

Maybe a handful for some police dept.?

Sure, 581 and 681 came in 6"... no?

And wasn't the N-frame fixed sight also available in 6", what did they call that one... ummm, Model 520?

Maybe I'm wrong, but it'll be interesting to see what develops here.

I have not seen or heard tell of a 6" fixed sight .357.
Doesn't say there aren't any out there, but they can't be common.
The M520 was a single spec gun, supposedly made for NYSP but not delivered.
