Here's a pair of "Classic" Re-issues; a model 29-10 and model 27-9.
The complete locking devices somehow disappeared on both revolvers, and the action springs seemed to automatically change themselves to lighten/sweeten the DA/SA pulls.
Always wanted blued 4 inchers in models 29, 57, 27, and 586. Still working on finding a Classic blued 586, and the SAW factory doesn't build a 4 inch mdl 57 anymore.

I don’t generally keep 4” Ns. A while back got a 29-8 Mountain Gun, has lock. It feels extremely comfortable in the hand. I broke my Goldy Locs rule with it. 8 3/8 “ is to long, 4” is to short
And 6 1/2” is just right. I can’t shoot 4” guns as well as 6” or longer. Will end up trading it for something in a longer tube.

Well I don’t have a Rem 1100 12g no more. Bright side is that I dealt hit off on a nice S&W 27-2. Actually guy dealt me out of my 1100. Got to give credit where due. Gun isn’t pristine and has a little honest wear cosmetically but very low round count gun. Box is a little beat, you can’t have everything. 6” is a nice length, 5” is perfect.

A .357 Magnum Post War Transitional shipped to the publisher of Field and Stream Magazine in May of 1948. 1 of 142 .357 Magnum Transitionals, 1 of 8 with a barrel over 8 inches, and the only one known with an 8 1/2” barrel. These Magnums were made mostly with pre-war parts. Click on the photos for a closer look…..
