There is one out now, 5" barrel and Hiviz front sight. Order nr 164284.
It has a heavy barrel but no underlug. Very good looking piece.

Two words of caution with the Hi-Viz sights Beachjumper. They pick up ambient light and focus it down their length where it appears as an illuminated dot. In an intruder in a darkened house situation there is DIM TO NONE ambient light so Hi-Viz sights will NOT assist you as they won't be activated. ALSO, they are rounded in profile and are difficult to align with repeatability in the square notch of the rear sight for paper punching--AND ONCE AGAIN--you will not see a glowing dot in the darkened port of an indoor range. Just so you know what to expect......
