S&W 629, two questions.

 Is there a positive way to tell the 629's that have been factory changed to handle greater punishment (heavy rounds) by reading the "Serial numbers"?
 What is your favorite barrel length for this revolver and why?

ALK8944, Thanks very much, this was no small effort! I think I have it straight, for instance the 629-2E that I am interested in started getting the modifications in 1988.
The dash in this instance (-2E) indicates the start of updates with more coming.Do you happen to know the latest update to this revolver? Is it like 3E, 4E, or what?
