I built mine of an 8" DW. You can tell its a dw by the cylinder release.

Mine lacks the bomar rib because the ones that can fit the rib are the fixed sight model 14 mine is a model 15.

I also prefer the presentation grips to the grippers.

Yep got the barrel from eric @ EWK he is fantastic.

in the late '70s I worked with a Cop who carried one on duty but not for long. They are heavier than whatever gun they're built on. They are bulky. You beat the steering wheeling to pieces climbing in and out of a car. George's was made out of a S&W M 19, 6 inch barrel.

The 6" L-frame 686 is listed at 45 ounces. I just weighed my Davis-built PPC revo: 58 ounces. It was built on a Model 14 k-frame, which normally weighs about 35 ounces. That's a 66% increase (1.4 lbs), and it hangs out over front of the gun, so it's plenty muzzle heavy.

Really, they're poor defensive choices.
If you're just trying to buy because you think it looks cool & that's your primary consideration, it's your life.
But, most of us base our defensive tools on what really counts & looks are wayyyy down on the list.

Then you should know that .45 Colt is required, and you need 2

SS GP-100 was the closest "Vash Gun" I could find in my price range.
