I like the 44spl but I would go with the new 22 in 45ACP. Good looking retro revolver with a nice blue finish. You should be able to get it cheaper than what you have listed though. Good luck!

I disagree. I would hate to fool with the GD moon clips. .44spl eliminates the need for them, ballastics are similiar, if not the same.

well, guess I was just hypnotized by the gold inlay....and the american handgunner's hype....
I bought it..
679.00 new in box with plastic box and wood display case plus the dealer is going to hook me up with the range bag offer from S&W

having been a MAJOR 1911 owner, shooter, sigh, JUNKIE>>
I havnt owned a wheel gun in over 10 years..

well, got the new gun fever pretty bad, hell its been 8 months since I bought one..
got the bonus check coming next month..
owe the feds a few bucks.,(need to buy a house i guess) but they can wait for the payout..

This is just such a classic looking pistol,
I did check out the new mod 22 but,,just wasnt the same in look and style..I had a mod 25 eons ago, hated the moon clips, they get bent, lost, spring across the range, just didnt float my boat.

so,,guess I can start reloading again,,.45 and 9mm have gotten sooooo cheap, I quit doing that about 6 years ago, sold the 4x4 press and lots of stuff.
I guess me and the old rock crusher can turn out a few hundred .44 a month..
