OK, here is a chance to post pics of great revolvers chambered in a great round. Fixed sights or adjustables. Blued, nickled, or stainless. Easy!

This is my 4" M24-3 wearing a set of out of production refinished Fitz cherrywood stocks. A great N frame. The only problem is I didn't buy any of the 4" M624s on closeout sale for about $225 OTD back when. Talk about mistakes!!!

I'm still waiting for my ammendment to go through (that's what we in NYS need to do to our permit every time we get a new gun) but as soon as I get mine I'll be a-posting!

New M-21 with the lock - has become my ride-around gun for the truck

Anybody want to trade a 5" holster like the one shown for a 4"? Send me a private message. Oops, I mean I've got a 5" and need a 4" for an N frame. Sorry, had a senior moment.

Definitely one of my favorite calibers....

Hey John... congrats with that nice job on those Fitz Gunfighter's, were they a light tone before the refinishing? I have 3 pairs that are new old stock that are lighter than what I like and have been contemplating how to finish them as they are raw wood.

This is the new toy I picked up over the weekend, I've had been looking for one for some time and with the help of CH47GUNNER, he made it happen for me :D Thanks again Bruce !!



And this is my only other .44 Special, a Model 1950 Target:



This one is a "pretend" M24.... A M544 Texas Wagon Train Commemorative in .44-40 with a 5" bbl (sweet). I had a cylinder assembly from a 29-3 fitted to the gun so I could fire .44 Spl and then simply swap the cylinder back to .44-40 and shoot that whenever I'm in the mood. The M544 isn't heat treated to handle .44 magnum, so have to limit it only shooting .44 Spl.

I'm also thinking about having the 29-3 cylinder nickled to identify it from the .44-40 cylinder when it's in the gun... the last thing I need is to go off to the range with .44-40 ammo and find that cylinder installed is the 29-3.

It will also give the gun the a "pinto" look, which will be interesting. The grips on it are vintage factory birdseye maple smooth targets.

Glad I could help Conrad,

After all, I couldn't purchase both the M629-4 3" (which I bought) and the M24-3 3". I'm very glad you were able to buy the gun, and from seeing some of your other revolvers, I know it'll go to a good home.

Here's an older pic of my only .44 Spl., a Model 624.

This is a Model of 1950 Target .44 Special that has a few modifications. The 6 1/2 inch barrel has been cut back to 4 inchs. The heel of the grip frame has been rounded and the toe of the frame was left square. No factory grips for this S&W. It has 80% finish and some of that is very thin in bright light.
The grips are custom made to fit by Executioner. He is a patient man. Serial is S128XXX range. I am certain it is rare, no one could mess up 2 guns like that. Carries nice and shoots OK.

Conrad,

Thanks for the compliment, I have a couple of others that look just as good. Even John "Fitz" Paul has handled these and commented on them. I haven't refinished anything in years, so my special Fitz grips were done by Kurt. Great job, and I have his contact info if you want.

And these are the darker "cherrywood" pieces. Fitz calls his lighter wood a walnut, and I have a stock set on my moonclipped 357 - they work well with moonclips.

Bill @ Yuma sure had me fooled. For the longest time, all I thought he had was a bushel basket of K-22s!
Ohhh, don't let him fool ya! Bill has a bushel basket of old N frames also! One time he brought them all to a Kingman gunshow and put them in a display case for folks to drool over! They were not for sale! :lol:
