A great revolver; not much bigger than the S&W J frame, but gives you an extra round and more to hold onto.
I'm used to seeing those sell in the $450-550 range in good or better shape in my locale.
The gun will be OK for an occasional cylinder or two of +P, but lots of +P will wear the lockwork- specifically the hand and bolt engagement. The frame is plenty strong though.
A good bet would be sticking to standard pressure .38sp loads for practice and loading up +P 135gr Gold Dots or the Rem 158gr LSWCHP for defensive needs.
The difference in recoil between +P and std pressure won't be as pronounced and felt in an alll steel snubby like that.
Those guns really feel nice too, with a Tyler T grip insert and the factory stocks.
The West is the Best.
