Default .44mag s&w

I just purchased a .44mag s&w rev. Any suggestions on some mods?

First of all I'd suggest you tell us the model number and barrel length.

If it has those rubber grips I'd suggest you invest in a pair of decent wood grips.

Love to see some pics. Here's mine. The original wooden grips were beat up, I put Hogue rubber grips on it, didn't care for them. I bought the current Hogue wooden grips about a year ago.

I like the Hogues in rubber or wood. The Pachmeyers are good too. Their decellerators can help absorb recoil. Beyond that, a couple of speed loaders and a bunch of ammo

Defenitly LOTS of ammo. That should be the first thing you buy for it.

Mine is a 1988 model 29. It has unfluted cylinder and four position front sight
25/50/75/100. It came with Hogue grips when new. Trigger pull is about 3.5 lbs. Not much you can do. I cannot imagine putting a scope on it.

Sorry I didn't say 4" barrel, with wood grips. I already bought three sets of speed loaders, and a TON of ammo!

I had to put the Hogue grip used on the .500 S&Ws on my 629 Mountain Gun. The cylinder release was tearing up my thumb.

What model 29 , they go from 29, 29-1 thru to 29-7 Look inside the frame when the cylinder is swung out. 29-? Add soft rubber hogue grips and go to shooting . About all it should need. If its a 29-2 or older keep the loads on the lighter side. . Shoot what is concedered the standard commerical 44 loads out today for the rest of the series. NO +P type loads.
