The Smith & Wesson Model 29 is a six-shot, double-action revolver chambered for the .44 Magnum cartridge and manufactured by the United States company Smith & Wesson.
The Model 29 was offered with 3", 4", 5", 6", 6½", 8⅜" and, later, 10⅝" barrel lengths as standard models. Other barrel lengths were available either by special order from Smith & Wesson's Custom Shop or custom built by gunsmiths. The 5" barreled variant had a full length underlug. Finish options available included a highly polished blued or nickel-plated surface.

I've never had good results with HKS loaders. I do, however, see SafariLand has...
So, I recently acquired a S&W Model 29 "Classic". I really couldn't be more please with said. The factory sights are good, though, I believe there are better target sights available. That and my aging eyes aren't getting younger.
On that score: anyone care to recommend good, adjustable...
So, I am interested in buying a blued, Smith & Wesson, Model 29, in .44 Magnum. I'm mainly interested in the variants produced with a 6" or 6½" barrel length, though I could roll with the 8⅜" barrel. I have no interest in the 4" or 10⅝" variants. I have little interest in the stainless steel...
