I vote Dan Wesson and the interchangeable barrels chinches the deal. 2 1/2", 4", 6" or 8". Also the Cylinder lock at the front of the crane helps too.

The market place determines which handguns or any product is successful. Like most heavy handgun users I hand load cast and swage bullets. I have taken Antelpe, Deer, Elk, Moose and other critters with a Mdl. 29 never knew my cylinder was too short?
This worn old S&W 29 has seen some rough times.

Want the ultimate .44 mag get a Ruger super Redhawk. At one time the only .44 mag pistol legal in Oregon for elk hunting as they had a minimum load that would blow up a 29. Just the way it is. And I am a S&W fan boy. My favorite pistol is the older model 57's in .41.

Mine.

Hardluc 1, your continued personal insults shows your lack of knowledge regarding firearms technology. Just ignore my post.

I just like my dependable S&W model 29 with 6 1/2" barrel, cause it's getting old like me and works very well.

gunsmoke 11, My first S&W 29 was that same revolver. I bought the 29 in the 1960s. It has shot tons of wheel weights and 2400 powder. In my younger days it hung on a River Belt or in a saddle bag and rode the High Country.
It was retired to the gun safe in later years. I still take the old girl out to the range once in while.

There are a handful of 44s that are stronger than a Smith, but I still like my 629. Nothing fancy just hard-cast slugs is what I use for field work.
