Harry's pistol in Button Man

A great old graphic novel, which I'm sure will eventually reach the screen. But what pistol does Harry use throughout?

For the curious Googlers out there: it looks like a Smith & Wesson model 4605 with adjustable sights (though in some panels it seems to have fixed sights).

In a few places it looks more compact at the business end, which suggests that the smaller 4006 might have filled in as a model when necessary, but in general the 4605 looks like the one.

The 4606 has an eight-round magazine, which fits with the story. I'll bet Harry's as deaf as a post after emptying all that .45 brass!
