Default Which Handgun is Equivalent to Dirty Harry's Calahann's?

I know that the 44 Magnum is not a real gun, because it does not fire.

But what I want to know is, which handgun is equivalent to Dirty Harry Callahann's, and DOES fire?

What do you mean the 44 Magnum does not fire???? Plenty of owners of the S & W 29 and 629 will beg to differ with you on that one.

There really IS a 44 Magnum?

There really IS a one that DOES FIRE?

Show me some proof, all right?

I'm new to this gun deal!

Plus, I'm a huge fan of badasses, including Clint Eastwood!

Go to the thread "44 magnum picture thread." You will see a bunch of them there. S7W's, Taurus's, and Rugers too.

Just go to Gunbroker and do a search for ".44 Magnum revolver" and you will find dozens of pistols that are quite real, including a few Model 29's like like Harry carried.

That's what I was thinking.

What on Earth would make you think the .44 Mag wasn't real and didn't fire?

i looked shopping online, and they told me that the 44 magnum "Dirty Harry gun" was a prop gun, and didn't fire.

Click below

.357 Magnum Revolver 8in Barrel 19-1061N - Buy from By The Sword, Inc.

they say it does not fire any live ammunition

Just a thought but maybe they meant that Clint Eastwood wasn't really blasting away in San Fran. That doesn't mean the gun wasn't a stage prop of an actual S&W. Most movie guns, except Sci-Fi, are non working or blank firing replicas of real ones.
