I voted "other".

S&W M17 or 18.

The two I have put the 617 I once had to shame.
However - in fairness to the 617 in general - mine was a lemon from the get go & even if it hadn't been, it wasn't at all what I expected it to be when I ordered it.
I thought about sending it back to S&W, but, decided I didn't want to keep it anyhow so why bother.
The only good thing I can say about it was that I got a lot for it on a trade in.
The 10 shot, round butt frame, full underlug 6" barrel and I just didn't get along.

Some time later, I lucked into a pair of older M17's. The seller was asking $395 ea for them - after some haggling.
I offered him $700 for the pair & he said "sold".

They shoot like a house afire, balance nearly exactly the same as my 6" M19 and have a rich "old" S&W blue.
