I own a S&W 29-3 8 3/8 in. The sight radius is over 10 in and not legal. Sad! Like the feel and action of the S&W 627 so I assume other models would be as good. perhaps the 629 performance center with a weighted barrel? Or a similar in 38 special?
 The Manuhrin Korth is out of my willingness monetarily. Suggestions for current production revolvers for bullseye would be very welcome.
 Thank you in advance

Use it for Reeves matches. Perfectly legal. You could even use it for CF matches. I have a lot of light loads worked up/down for mine.

Me bad. Misread the rules you are right. I'll just keep what I have.
Thank you

I know you mentioned for Bullseye but, it is not legal for NRA Distinguished Revolver.  Which is perfect if you want to go shopping for a legal revolver with double action and a maximum barrel length of 6.5" that fires .38spl.
