Although this particular revolver does not have a letter as of yet, the Smith & Wesson Historical foundation has confirmed, this revolver was one of ten identical guns that went to the Williams Gun Sight Company in Davison, Michigan, on June 13, 1957. There were actually a total of 55 guns in the order; these ten .44 Magnums, a batch of 5 .44 Magnums with 4″ barrels, 10 Chiefs Specials, 20 K-22 Masterpieces, and 10 K-22 Masterpieces with target hammers. Overall, this would be the perfect addition for those collections with post war,  high-powered revolvers, or general Dirty Harry fans.

@Cove3rt "You're thinking "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Now to tell you the truth, I've forgotten myself in all this excitement. But being this is a . 44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and will blow your head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself a question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?"

.44 magnum, Model 29.... Get yourself a shoulder hostler to go with it!

Does anyone know if this the same S&W model that Clint Eastwood used in "Dirty Harry"?
