Those are very pretty. Really like the revolvers !
One thing I guess I'm in the minority on, I notice everyone with the 6 7/8 barrels. I find those to not balance very well and prefer the 5.5 HB or 6" lightweight barrels. My favorite is a MKII Stainless in 5.5 HB Target Config with the Volquartsen (sp) trigger....rivals a SW 41 IMO.

Good riddance. A gun's always loaded. Don't need the LCI to tell me that.

Better to get a gun that doesn't have one in the first place.

Thanks. Love em all. The longer barrel on the hunter actually balances very well. The fluted barrel and thicker machine lower has a great balance to it. Not nose heavy at all.

After reading all the comments, just for fun I took my Mark IV out of the safe last night and field striped it. To the OP's question, is it worth it? My answer is Hell Yes.

That's the exact configuration I'm thinking about. Would love to try to find one around here to handle.

I have a MK II 5.5" bull barrel I can't estimate the number of rounds shot through it. Owned it since 1982 or '83, IIRC. As accurate now as the day I bought it new.
Takedown isn't bad, just need to watch what I do and make sure I don't get cavalier about it. The barrel/receiver loosened up on the grip frame
way back. A little judicious peening with a hammer eliminated that looseness. If I could change just one thing on that pistol it would be relocating the mag catch to where it is on the MK IV's.
