Our Assessment: Popularized by Dirty Harry movies, the N-frame long barrel S&W revolvers had already been on the shelf in America for a few decades; after the movie, the Model 29 was revered by target shooters and law enforcement alike. This is an all stainless steel version with a 3″ barrel and a round-butt equipped with a finger-grooved checkered wood grip, which should make it more comfortable for many hands. Stainless revolvers are easier to maintain than blue or nickel and the 6″ barreled stainless steel N-frame is going to make for a handy revolver to carry when hunting, fishing or even for home defense. Please see our photos and good luck!
