S&W 696 .44 Special ?
I picked up this gun about three months ago for $359.00. I found out it was a great price when I got home and looked up auctions on Gun Broker. Here is the question the gun is ported with two slits, one on each side of the front sight. Is that factory or maybe this is why it was inexpensive. It is in 95% condition and shoots great with Hornady ammo. Thanks for the input.
