Yes, yes,yes... Model 29 Smith & Wesson. Everybody had to have one after the movie. Most of them ended up being traded off or pawned. The average knucklehead just had no idea how brutal this 44 Magnum "could" be. I waited 20 years before I started collecting 44 Magnums. I have a bunch of them now, and I love ALL of them! I have 29's, 629's, Super Blackhawks, Redhawks, Bisley's, and on and on.Dang I can't think of that one, just the movie Dirty Harry and what Clint Eastwood used
LOL on the .454 Casull that is now being trumpt by the .460 Magnum and the .500 Magnum, I heard a rumor that someone is working on a new one too.I guess those dippo's that just had to have a "Dirty Harry" gun didn't know about 44 Specials.
And, Dirty Harry was wrong anyway... it was the "SECOND" most powerful handgun in the world. The 454 Casull was well established at the time the movie was made.
Yeah, for some reason someone (in marketing) thinks that wheelguns are lacking in power. All of these 44's, 445's, 454's, 460's, 475's, and 500's just don't cut it anymore, They are thinking that a 20mm revolver would be nice...LOL on the .454 Casull that is now being trumpt by the .460 Magnum and the .500 Magnum, I heard a rumor that someone is working on a new one too.
I can do everything I want to do with the .44 Magnum, from mild 44 Spl loadings on up to real wild thumpers.
I have shot all of the above mentioned and I still have a soft spot for the fabulous 41magnum. I have four S&W hand guns (4inch - 8 3/8 inch length barrels) and a Marlin 1894 lever action. Great hog and deer gun. And self defense is awesome as well. Less recoil and better accuracy than any of the other mention cartridges mentioned. But again JMO.Yeah, for some reason someone (in marketing) thinks that wheelguns are lacking in power.

I have 5 44 Magnums and I love shooting all of them.
THis is absolutely TRUE. I can't believe anyone knew that besides me "the greatest 41mag fan"Not the question you're asking, but how many of yall know "dirty harry's" famous .44mag was actually a S&W model 57 in .41mag? It was portrayed as being an .44 but was actually .41mag due to logistical issues.
Welcome to the forum jd45, hope you enjoy it here, but do us all a favor, go to the introduction forum and intro yourself there. Thanks.Hello to all! New to this forum & glad to be here. To answer the question asked, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you mean "High Plains Drifter"...I think you mean, "Pale Rider", if you're talking about "Pale Rider", his main revolver was an 1858 Remington percussion revolver converted to cartridge,......in the others, he used the Cole SAA, except for "The Good; The Bad; & The Ugly", in which he used an 1851 Navy Colt, converted to cartridge by Kenny Howell of R&D Conversions. Hope this helps, jd45
