    I just bought this beauty today! I love 44 Magnums, and this one will be at the top of my favorites. I have several 629's and a 329PD, I have no doubt this will be a keeper.

    Yes sir, that is correct. However, it's manufactured differently than a conventional L Frame. It utilizes a two-piece barrel and the frame is forged instead of cast. I am told that it can eat full bore Magnums all day without issues.

    I just talked to a friend of mine in Alaska (and yes I do have few people who are friends of mine:p) and he said he has seen several of them and they are catching on fast up there.

    I took my Model 69 with me to the gun range yesterday and tried out some various reloads. This revolver is by far the nicest shooting 44 Magnum I have ever owned. The big bang attracted the attention of the Range Officer, and he seemed confused as to what I was shooting. I showed it to him and he was more astonished to see it was an L Frame 44 Mag. I let him shoot it, and he was really shocked as to how controllable it is especially with hotter loads. I shot a bunch of typical 240 grain JFP's, then broke out my "bad-boy" 305 grain Hard Cast Semi-Wad Cutters. I kept a 4" group at 15 yards with no effort at all. I LOVE this revolver!
