    Is there any recoil difference between the 4” and 2.75”?

    I have shot them side by side with the same ammo and my perception is that the 4.25" recoils slightly more than the 2.75". I attribute this to 100 fps +- more velocity of the longer bbl offsetting the 2 oz lighter weight of the shortie.

    FWIW,

    The short barrel 69 looks like it would make a great fanny pack revolver. Here is mine -- I managed to fit L frame grips on it.

    I'm a sucker for these light weight short barreled handguns

    Here are two more

    2.5" S&W M329



    and a 2.5" Taurus Titanium Tracker in .41 mag (Grizly 250gr WFN go 1,150 fps from this little fire breather).
