Hi Don,

Yes it's synthetic. I've bought a Butler Creek folder for it as well.

LoveMyLab, welcome to the gun nut thread! I say that very tounge in cheek too.

My shooting regimin has been curtailed due to winter. My local gun store was supposed to have had an indoor range opened for summer 07 but that still hasn't happened. Oh well.

CSD, can you get both? I didn't know that a Mod 27 or 28 came in nickel. I have a very nice blued mod 27 that I bought ~1978, a 6" .357 magnum. A very nice shooting .357 magnum.

Talking about S&W revolvers, not too long ago I acquired both a model 586 and a 629. Both are 6" barrels, the 586 is in .357 magnum and the 629 is in .44 magnum.

The 629 is the 1st .44 magnum I've ever owned. The 586 is the 1st nickel plated gun I've owned. I'm definetely going to keep the 629 but I might trade the 586 for a nice 686 or 66 if the right deal were to come around.

I'm half-heartedly looking for a Marlin 1894 SS if any of you stumble across one at a good price. This is a .44 magnum stainless steel lever action BTW.

Well it took me awhile to find one but I did find the Marlin lever action I mentioned above. I should be able to pick it up today.

I'd take the 6" M27 unless you're looking for a shorter gun. BTW, my M57 4" blue is still available, if anyone's interested. I don't need it now that I got the XD 45.

Last year I sold both my H&K .223 assault rifle, and H&K P7M13, both for about twice what I paid for them. They were fun, but I needed the cash, and I just have a hard time finding a range in SoCal where I can run the .223. I have a cute little Beretta .25, very tiny and reliable, a S&W .38 Bodyguard Airweight (5 shot), and a Ruger 6".357. That's all I really need. I have an indoor range here in Downtown Los Angeles that I can walk to. But it can get pretty expensive, so I don't go often. When I do, I always invite a woman who hasn't shot before. Most women I know really get a charge out of it.

Here is a pic of my new babies. The SS lever is the Marlin 1894 in .44magnum that I picked up Friday. The revolver is a S&W 629 SS .44 mag and the blued lever is a Wards Westernfield (Marlin 336) .30-30.

I paid too much for the SS Marlin but then I paid too little for the .30-30. Good balance there I think.

I don't see the pic?

Do you know of any carbines that will fire a .44 Special?

MD, better? Guess I forgot to add the link.

AFAIK, any of the .44mag lever actions will also shoot .44 special. Same with the .357mag lever actions and .38 specials.

MikeS. is correct. Any .44 Remington Magnum will chamber and fire a .44 Special cartridge.

I can't wait until I get a chance to fire the .44 leveraction. Maybe today. I'm going to attend a firearms safety class, a prerequisite to obtaining a CCW.

Thanks. I know that they have the same casing and bullet diameter, but I wondered whether they would feed properly, because of the shorter length.

You post up your M28 and I'll post up mine. It's a really great revolver.

The Ruger with the rotary magazine looks like it would not work.

Well I have decided I don't really like shooting .44 magnum out of a handgun. Too much recoil for my old arthritic bones. I do like it out of a lever gun though. Oh well I guess the m29 can sit in the safe.

Just practice with light special loads - keep the elephant magnum loads for the (hopefully, never) late night intruder.

Ruger Model 96/44M


This is the magazine for the 96/44 Ruger. It would seem that length issues might interfere with feeding. (?) What do you think? I also noted that the Ruger web site does not mention compatibility with the 44 Special, unlike the Marlin and others with a tubular magazine.

Well, I bet you guys can help me. I used to be into hand guns, I’ve got quite a few and on occasion go out to the range. I purchased a nice safe from Cabela’s a while back and it has a spot for some long guns…well, a person can’t have empty spots just sitting there. I always wanted an AR, but Jeeze there is a huge variety to choose from. I was looking at a magazine the other day, I would have no idea what to get. Are there a couple of choices that are considered king?

@theedge, I'm in the same boat as you. I don't know diddly about the ar-15 platform. I've never had any intrest in them. I have been to www.ar15.com a few times. They have a ton of information that might help you out.

CSD, I had shot the m29 back in the fall and after ~18 rounds my right middle finger was getting banged up by the trigger guard. So I bought the Houge grips and put them on Wednesday before going to shoot. The finger was ok but the wrist still took a pounding.

Oneiron, I did use some .44 specials and they were good. Locally the specials are more expensive then the magnums.
