    Welcome from the NC mountains (formerly from the Allegheny Valley). I go along with Mark's recommendations on barrel length for the reasons he stated. The Classic models of the "29" have an endurance package that will stand up to hot loads better than the original model-29s. I believe the Classics all have a barrel underlug.



    The Classic model.

    Welcome from across the steelmaking state! Always good to have another PA shooter around. I'm a Colt and 1911 shooter/collector too.

    Go Steelers!

    Was to Powell's today, and he has an 8-3/8" M-29. (Penn Hills)

    Keep an eye on Ace's used page. (Little Washington) Ace's posts their used firearms on their Web Page.

    Would do well to give Braverman's a call. (Wilkinsburg)

    The .44 Mag (like all Magnum revolvers) really benefits from barrel length. The longer barrel gives more velocity, and a bit less muzzle blast, when using full power loads.

    For hunting, a good shoulder or chest holster is in order.

    Later, Mark

    Mark did you recall what the finish and price was on the one at Powell's?
