Brought her home from lunch today...

A NIB Rock Island Armory (RIA) model AL 3.1

Chambered in .357mag, it's a 6-shot stainless wheelie made in the Czech Republic

Was looking for a 3" ... But settled for this 2"

Will use this while hiking the trails out in the Black Hills in a couple of months. I used to carry a Ruger SP101 for that duty. I don't want to carry an autoloader and wanted a reasonably powerful revolver (more than my .38spl's) that would fit in my existing thumb break OWB holsters. I have some .45colt revolvers (both SA and DA) but don't want to lug the weight and length around)

The SA trigger measures 3.75 - 4 lbs on my wheeler gauge and the DA is quite smooth

Weight of gun is 1.7 lbs unloaded

The fixed sights, rubber grip, stainless finish and underlug are all things I prefer for a gun I carry outdoor while hiking in all kinds of weather.
