The 44 Magnum and its model variations with a 5-inch barrel are highly sought after by collectors. I found this one many years ago with its original presentation case, accessories, and literature. It was shipped in March 1963 and is a fairly early 29-2. It has an L stamped on the rear surface of the cylinder indicating the revolver has an extractor rod with a left-hand thread. It is estimated that about 450 44 Magnums were made with a 5-inch barrel and shipped from 1956 to 1973 (most from 1958 to 1963).
