I curently have a Stihl 029 which I like, but, would like to have a second saw for felling bigger trees.  I've sort of decided on buying a used 046 and have seen some on ebay that point out the saw is a "MAGNUM".  I was under the impression that the "pro" saws are all magnums and there's no difference between a "MAGNUM" and plain old 046.  Am I wrong?

I decided that since the saw would be used for felling and bucking I'd look for one with a full wrap handle, double dogs and a 24" bar.  Anything else I should be looking for?  

I'm also considering simply adding these features after picking up a standard saw as they are much more accessible.  Any thoughts on that?  Seems like all the used saws set up for felling go for an extra $100 or so.

Thanks for your advice. You guys are very helpful.
