I was lurking on the blue forum yesterday and reading a thread on triple locks with 4" barrels. I have to say even with their worn finish they still look good to me. Many were nickel platted or what was left of their platting. I don't have a triple lock and I doubt if I ever get one so I'll just have to be happy with my 29-3. If you have a triple lock or any S&W 44 with a 4" barrel please post it. Here is my 29-3 with a 4" barrel. I really like N frames with a 4" barrel.
