I do love my 629-6. I think it might be the most accurate revolver I own, and I do have some nice old Smiths. I know it's responsible for the single most awesome handgun shot I've made. I'd shot all my 10 yd and 25 yd paper targets and I had one round left. I thought, "I'm going to try that yonder hanging target." Right, a steel strip 4" wide and 100 yards away. One shot offhand and sent it swinging like crazy.

Congrats on your new to you revolver.

Opportunity may knock ounce, but temptation leans on the doorbell.
The S&W 629 is my favorite revolver, but sadly one I'm unlikely to ever own as they tend to command prices I could never afford/justify, so the most I can do is admire them from afar.

Here it is with the Altamont stag grips. I have a BK grip adapter that will be here in a few days. The BK adapter is a polymer Tyler T-Grip knock off. They come in black and ivory and are around $12 cheaper than Tyler Ts. Plus you can order them online instead of mailing off like you have to do for the Tyler Ts. I think I'll need to send off for the brushed aluminum Tyler T-Grips anyway though just to have a match with the stainless steel. BTW, it recoil is very manageable with these grips shooting a hot .44 Special load. I haven't touched off any factory magnum rounds yet onnacounta I'm cheap!
