I am considering this revolver to hunt dear. I have found very little information regarding this revolver, scattered online. What do you know about this gun?
Which one? I have the 629-6 Hunter Plus, and a 629-6 ported Classic. Both are Performance Center weapons and both are magnificent. This one is my favorite, as I have killed a lot of huge feral pigs at 75 yards with it, in a single shot.
This is my 629-6 Classic. It has a 6.5" barrel and it's power ported. This one is a lot lighter than my Hunter Plus but it doesn't have quite the range. It's still good for a one shot knock-down at 60 yards though.
I just love my Smith & Wesson PC Revolvers. They have a feel to them that you can't get from any other gun. The action is so smooth and silky and there's no trigger creep at all. I have a 3.5 pound trigger pull set on these pistols and they are incredably awesome.
