I wish I had a Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan I could post for you to salivate over, but sadly, I don't have one yet. That one hasn't made it off of the "want list" yet.

I wish I could post a pic.

I wish I could have bought the gun so I could post a pic.

A week ago, at my local gun show I saw a blued 4-inch S&W Model 25 (in .45 Colt), with unfluted cylinder. It was not new production but was in very good shape. Very good. He wanted $800 IIRC.

I could not buy it because only minutes before I bought a born-in-1980 4-inch Highway Patrolman But if I had not just used up my money I would have been working a deal on that .45.

Who wonders how to tell if that unfluted cylinder was actually from S&W.

I know of a 7-1/2" 454 Super Redhawk looking for a home. It's a real purdy stainless...

You can satisfy some of your unfluted lust by getting a new single six convertible and throwing the magnum cylinder in there .

Ozzie, I like that! A 3-inch 629 is not common.

But I bet it is a sweet shooter with even heavy .44 Specials.

44 specials,, like a 38 special in a 19.
It came into the shop I worked at and the owner knowing I have a thing for N frame S&W (more like addiction) and with 44 attached (yea I’m gone) he hands me the box it came in and smiles.
I opened it up and took it home.
Yep freebee.

Well, folks, I'm feeling the tiniest of hints of improvement in my condition. But the road to recovery is long and fraught with set backs: let's not count my chickens!! For that reason let the treatment continue!! I look forward to your offerings!!

BTW the S&W .357 and the last SA 5" in .44Mag: lovely!! That FA Linebaugh is also a delight. Mmmmm!!
