Please post pics of your .44s

Guys,

I'm getting ready to buy my first revolver (already have a half-dozen auto-loaders) and have decided on the .44. If you could be so kind as to post your pics, that'd be great. I'd like to get an idea of what's out there and available.

Thanks,

Matt

I don't have a pic of my dads .44 mag Ruger Super Blackhawk. But it has a 6" barrel and is stainless with the stock wood grips, so it looks the same as the ones on the Ruger website. Very good looking wheelgun, makes me want one, only I want a blued Blackhawk in .357 mag with a 4 5/8" barrel.

I just got this one a little more than a week ago...


Posted it here already with some discussion.... going to take it to its second range trip today!

The image wasn't in focus when I took it so it's digitally sharpened, so excuse the squarishness in someparts.

Currently three. A Redhawk, a 696, and a 29-8 Mountain Gun. Each has it's own charm.


Bullrock, I really like those smooth Eagles on your MG.

"Now that is one beautiful 23."

Damn my fumbling fingers!

It's actually a Model 24, and it was born sometime in the 1983.

It's a Model 24-3, the reintroduction of the 1950 Target Model.

I bought it on-line from a shop in Pennsylvania. My heart went pitter patter when I saw it, and I did the "buy now" for just shy of $400.

At the time I paid probably a bit too much, and it was worth every penny.

I've been on the lookout for one with a 4" tube ever since.

ethernectar: It's a S&W 629... one of their custom shop guns. Interchangeable barrel weights in front to keep muzzle rise down.

GunsnRovers,

That hurts my hand just looking at it!! How many rounds do you usually fire from that in one session?
I'll post a pic of my 7 1/2 inch Super Blackhawk when I get home.

It's .44spl, not .44mag.

When I had boot grips on it, it was not that much fun. Now, with the round to square conversions, I can bang away for a while. I don't care for .44mag.

Doh, I'll learn to read someday. All my pics are too big. I don't know how to make them smaller.

Only pic I have of it right now. 6" 629-1 .44 Magnum. Lots of fun. This pic was just under 900 rounds ago.
