    I may be wrong but I think I remember that you sold it and bought a Glock in 45 GAP caliber!!-----

    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.

    Beautiful gun.

    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!
