I have one just like the 6.5", except without the color-case hardened frame. I leave the .22 Mag cylinder in it because i love the little bit of extra noise and muzzle blast over .22 LR. Mine seems to shoot quite accurately, more accurate than I am for sure.
I've got one too, absolutely love it. Mine is a 4.5" barrel (I think, never measured it). The safety is a bit odd, but it didn't take long for me to get used to it. I thought about trying to remove it altogether, but I'm not as handy as I think I am, so I left it alone. Besides, it's just a fun range piece for me. I was really impressed when I first shot it; it just feels like you get more than you pay for. Mine didn't come with a 22mag cylinder, but I don't miss it. Like my 96/22, I primarily feed it CCI Quiet-22. It's not as quiet as in the rifle, but it still is far quietier than HV or standard velocity stuff. And I know my neighbors appreciate that
