I only intend to shoot 44spl out of my possible 6-er. I have my brush rifle for Magnum loads. Nobody makes 44spl revolvers anymore so the only way I can find a good 44spl revolver is to look for a 44mag revolver.
If I was going to go on the all steel route I run into cost and weight issues.
Just not as many options as I would like, again its S&W vs. some other firm.
And I know MIM is how most guns are made these days but it just strikes me as wrong that S&W would dare use MIM in the new Model 29 and other retro models they're coming out with.
I sort of like the new S&W Model 29 Mountain Gun:
Cons are that it might be too pricey and it has not been rigorously reviewed yet. So I know nothing about the quality.
Next possibility is the New Ruger Redhawk 4-inch
But yikes this thing is heavy! And a Suggested Retail Price of $780! Too much Gun, maybe?
