Uh...no.

The base pin is what holds the cylinder in. By using an oversize pin, you eliminate lateral movement of the cylinder in relation to the bore.

I did have a 4" 629 for awhile. Sold or traded it for lord knows what... That one I should prolly have kept, but live and learn (hopefully). Actually it was an ok carry, better than the 5.5 inch Redhawk I got later, tho the Hawk is capable of hotter loads (they say). I waas given the recipes for some pretty warm handloads that were simply uncomfortable and Im not a recoil *****. These I used in my Puma carbine.
Like the guy above said, "If you want it, buy it". In some cases its the only way to find your bliss... and aint it good to live in this great nation where we have both the liberty and bucks to do this?

Thought either that or you were being a smarta$$. Lol.

Off of the benchrest and sand bags I can hit a 6" plate nearly every time with open sites. Offhand, probably average 6 out of 10. I probably shoot more often than most though. My back yard is my range and I shoot almost every day, burning on average probably 400 rounds per week from a variety of guns (mostly single action revolvers). All of my shooting is done in a serious effort to improve loads and my own skill, so I'm not just out blasting away.

I cast my own bullets and size them appropriate to each individual gun. Each gun has a load developed specifically for accuracy. I stack all the odds in my favor that I can! The. I shoot a lot. I think most people never shoot to the accuracy potential of their gun for a variety of reasons, but probably foremost because they simply don't shoot enough or don't practice with a strong focus on fundamentals.

If you expect to use it for defense against a bear, maybe it's OK, but I'd sure hate to have a bear close enough to me that a 4" Redhawk is too long! If it is for people you may be OK with some stout .44 SPL ammo. But a Charter Arms Bulldog is a much lighter (22 oz) .44 SPL with a 2 1/2" barrel, and is much easier to carry and to conceal, due to a shorter grip and narrower width. The Alaskan would have lotsa intimidation power, but you don't draw a gun to intimidate a perp. That's called "brandishing a firearm", and is illegal. However, if the idea is to impress your friends, then get it and enjoy showing it off.
