I like the look of the tapered barrels on the model 24 better than bull barrels of the model 29. Could I have my model 29 rebarreled with a 44 special barrel and still fire 44 magnums?

The revolver I pictured above....the barrel started as a 6 1/2" model 24 barrel.

I bob'd it back to 5 inch.

If you can find a 6 1/2" 24 barrel or you already have one on hand.

It just takes a little lathe work to fit it up.

Here's a pic of a custom 520 4 inch I built up as a 44 Spl/Mag.

If you can do it yourself, it is a great idea. If you need to hire it done, still a good idea. Andy Horvath is still working so he gets my recommendation.
