With the bobbed hammer spur, Detonics slash of top rear of slide, severe rounding of all corners, ducktail frame tang, and so on, the little Star is SLICK out of a Kydex front pocket rig. It's the same size and wt as a J frame Smith .38 snub. 19 ozs. In fact, loaded wt is 1-2 ozs less than the j frame if use 158 gr bullets in the .38, and use Boot Grips on it.
