    A friend of mine has one of the Lew Horton specials, magnaported, etc. The porting makes it push straight back instead of the muzzle whip of my old 29. The trigger is light & crisp, timing very tight. It shoots VERY well & if I ever buy another .44 mag. it's what I'd want.

    The only ones worth having are the 629 no dash, 629-1, 629-2, 629-3, and lastly 629-4. Avoid the 629-5 and up.

    I have been highly debating selling my 24-3 in favor of a 629 no dash 4-inch pinned and recessed barrel. I really like the thought of it but I cannot decide. THe gun is $695 but I don't know if it is worth all of that.

    Hey David, help me understand - what is a pinned and recessed barrel? I'm looking at one that is a $100+ less, but I don't know what pinned and recessed means!

    Rob, pinned refers to the barrel, where the barrel is screwed into the frame and held with a pin. This practice was discontinued in the more modern versions and is a sign of an older weapon. Recessed relates to the rear of the cylinder chambers that are counter-bored to allow the cartridge to sit flush with the rear of the cylinder when loaded. This was only done on magnum calibers and rim-fires. The practice was discontinued in 1982 on the magnums, but continues today on rim-fires. Pinned and recessed is generally considered to be a plus by way of age/quality, but of course there are debates as to age and quality that will provide you enough reading to wear a strong man down! I hope this explaination helps.
