I've had one for more than 15 years- mine is the older version with steel sights, not the new acrylic ones.
Great gun for around the place, lightweight, 8 shots, and the frame is pretty much rustproof in normal use. I was glad they brought them back, my wife took mine over.
Mine came with wood grips and I switched to rubber. The wood ones are a little lighter than the rubber ones but the gun is plenty light either way. You hardly know it's in the holster.
Plenty accurate and eats everything you put in it. Go for it.

I'm thinking of the snub nose.

The barrel on the snub is 1 7/8". The other is 3". For the extra inch you gain adjustable sights.

I have two of them, both 3".
As stated, with the 3" you get adjustable sights, which I want.
This is pretty much my favorite bicycle gun, as it it light and compact.
It is also scary accurate.
I highly recommend them.
