I'm hoping to add a -5 or earlier Model 17 to the collection. Can't decide on whether to go with a 6" or 8 3/8" barrel. The gun won't be holstered or carried so the 8 3/8" barrel won't be an issue. Anyone own either or both barrel lengths? If so, what are your thoughts? I'm honestly leaning towards the 8 3/8" even though the values are a little more depressed on them. I don't currently have anything in that particular length and they were produced in much smaller numbers than the 4" and 6" guns. The current plan is to likely sell or trade the A2 HBAR in the photos below for a vintage Model 17. I purchased the rifle 10 months ago and it still hasn't seen any use so it needs to find a new home. I'll likely end up taking the rifle to Tulsa and seeing what can be found at Wanenmacher next month.
