Oh, I don't know. A Bianchi X-15 would make kind of a cool accessory for it.



And a brown and yellow check jacket to wear over it. Big Grin

If you’re going to shoot magnums then you want the factory rubber 500 grips . Best grip out there if shooting magnums and I have them on all of my Smith .44’s .
You can buy them from the factory website .


Wouldn't that be these anyway?

I used to have one just like the original posters. I wish I still did; maybe one of these days. Never a bad choice, and it works for most occasions.

A very nice and substantial revolver there. Love the big iron!

I have a shoulder holster for mine but never tried to carry it concealed. As a young and poorly paid officer I carried my 5" Model 27 on and off duty for a time because I could not afford a second pistol for off duty. It can be done, you just have to dress around it.

Putting rubber grips on a P&R revolver will bring down the fury of the S&W gods. Smile

If you’re going to shoot magnums then you want the factory rubber 500 grips . Best grip out there if shooting magnums and I have them on all of my Smith .44’s .

No the 500 grips are padded along the back strap area.
The Hogue’s are not . Makes a huge difference.

Back in the 70’s at the height of the Dirty Harry craze I now plenty of people who carried 44’s in shoulder holsters. From about that time until the mid 80’s my brother carried a 4” 29 as his duty police gun. In those days the agency he worked for had a very lenient duty gun policy. He later went to a smith 39 for a few years until the agency adopted the Glock 22 for all officers

The 629 he has is a square butt N-frame. I doubt the 500 grips will fit

Very nice! I had a 629 soon after they were released, and later a 629-1. Should have kept at least one of themWink

BTW, one of my fellow officers actually did carry a 6" 29 in a shoulder holster off-duty.

I have the same gun that I inherited from my father in 1983. N7778**. It was tested at the factory in every other chamber and has not been fired since.

Very nice. I’d take the side-plate off(properly) and peek at the insides. It may well need a cleaning, or at least a light lube job. No need to take it all apart.

Just showing off my latest acquisition. A very good friend of mine pretty much gifted me this for Christmas. I'm building two rifles for him but he knew I've been wanting a 629 for years. I wanted to have one for my 44th B-day and now I have it (a year late, but I'm not complaining).

It comes with an original box and display case...


Tony,
Very nice “hand cannon”!

Everyone needs a quality big bore revolver in their collection!
Those early no-dashes don’t come around often.

That's a nice pair, Bill!

I'm looking to stop by the sporting goods store today and pick up a box or two of ammo and get her sighted in. I don't have any 44 reloading components.

I took off the side plate last night and everything inside was spotless. I greased up the yoke and the extractor shaft since everything was bone dry. I'll probably do the same with the internals soon.

Now this is more like it. I got the Hogues in yesterday and man, what a world of a difference! This thing feels much better in the hand now.
