My most recent purchase. Taylor's/Uberti 4 3/4" Smoke Wagon in .357 magnum. I would have preferred smooth grips but these are what came on it. I may eventually shop around for some stags.

Would you consider reloading for your .41 Magnums? Any straight-walled handgun cartridge is rather easy to do, and it doesn't cost that much to get set up. It's really the only way I can afford to shoot either .44 Spl/Mag or .45 Colt.

Several years ago when I was reloading I regularly loaded .357 magnum, .41 magnum, .44 magnum, .45 ACP and .45 Colt. The loads I used for the .41 and .44 magnums performed about the same at around 1100 fps which made them pleasant to shoot. 1500 fps is hard on the hand after a few cylinders.

Ah, you've done it before--excellent! Might be a good idea to take it up again, at least for the .41 Magnums. I know, it's kinda tough to get components, but I think large pistol primers are still available somewhat reasonably; it's the small pistol primers that are hard to get.

I know what you mean about recoil, BTW, and you're right. We have a ".44 Special +P" load--at least, that's what I call it--to keep the hands happier. This is what the M629 typically sees as its diet, using Titegroup and a 200gr cast bullet. The wife even rather likes it. In a Redhawk, it's like shooting .38 Special out of a Model 27.

I used to reload regularly because my BIL and I had annual passes at the indoor range in Brea. Then I got involved in some other hobbies that took up my spare time. After that, for some reason, I never got back into reloading. Last year I gave everything to my SIL who was interested in getting started.
I used the .41 magnum load in the Model 57 and the Blackhawk but the small grips on the Blackhawk were uncomfortable. The stag grips I put on it were curved rather than sharp in the front and that made a big difference. The .44 magnum load worked well in the Model 29 and the 7 1/2" Redhawk which is a heavy gun.

My S&W 617-4 10 shot .22LR 8 3/8" barrel
I found this at an estate auction while I was living in Arkansas years ago and got it for a fraction of what it was worth!




Smith & Wesson 625-8 Apex Custom 45 ACP/4"

Pic above is from when I originally purchased it. Custom worked 625-8: Full trigger and action job consisting of the Apex Evolution IV parts kit and a level IV ICORE action work, chamfered cylinder, Hi-Vis replacement front sight and fully adjustable rear sight, bead blasted stainless finish

S&W 29-3, never fired. The original target grips are stashed away for safe keeping, these are Altamont's modern take on the classic coke bottle grips,

Took some updated pics today. They're a bit oily from a cleaning.

How do you like the Model 22? I've had my eye on that model for a while because I love the retro look to the gun.

I like it a lot. I have a Colt & S&W 1917 and this is a nice modern companion to them. Plugged the Hillary Hole. The original half moon front sight was not regulated properly and the previous owner buggered up the fix, but the SDM gold bead works out nicely.

My most recent revolver, SW 29 engraved. I had to put some slightly smaller Altamonts on it, the factory grips were just too big for my smaller hands.

It is a pretty tight shooter with .44 spl rounds.

^^^ Great first wheelgun! One of my faves. You might double check the mfg date (year) with S&W - serial number sources online are unreliable for some of these model 36. You might find it was made in the 80's. Is it a square butt or round butt?

Thanks SkyHawk.

This one is a square butt. And in regards to the mfg date, there are couple things that verified the mfg year or at least close to it. The box it came with had writing in it from the first owner stating “first fired” along with the range location and date of 10/29/1969. Sticker tag was still displayed on the box of $78.50. Serial number (614XXX) also predates the “J” prefix serial numbers.

My two favorites. A Model 25-9 45 Long Colt and the second a pre model number five screw frame 357 that my Dad bought the year I was born (1957) to give me later.

Sounds like a good date to me I also have a square butt ~1980 with a J prefix, but still has the pinned barrel. A little harder to find grips for the squares but I like the classic grips on them so no biggie.

I know this thread is old but it's a good place to share revolver pics so I want to keep it going.
This is my most recent purchase and I have a second one that I can DROS on 9/5.

People were posting some good pics of their S&W revolvers. I posted my .41 magnum so here is my .357 magnum.

Model 27-2 with 5" barrel.

Thanks guys. I was very lucky to find the Colt. I went to my local to order a Taylor's Smoke Wagon revolver and was surprised to find the Single Action Army. I couldn't pass it up but now I still need to order a Smoke Wagon.

I was going to order another one of these when I found the Colt instead. It's a Taylor's/Uberti Smoke Wagon in .357 magnum. It's a replica of the 1873 Colt SAA.

Default Model 28 “S” serial #

63290BF8-CEE3-4DD9-996A-F720BC33C3B4.jpg

According to S&W the gun was produced in 1957 I think. It is 100% engraved with 14k gold inlay. One side has a rattle snake and the other a wolf both in gold. The grips are Sambar stag but the originals are ivory and safely tucked away….

There’s a long story how this was engraved but it was not company done. Per S&W it was against Company policy to engrave model 28’s. I had searched high and low for many years defined the ultimate barbecue gun and this is what I came up with. I was very fortunate to get it when I did and it will be passed on in my family eventually….

Just wanted to share.

I'm glad you shared, thank you. That is a beautiful revolver and you are very fortunate to own it.
