If you like powerful guns this is one to have. It is a well constructed one and nice one. It is a beautiful one. I really enjoy shooting it!

Outstanding revolver. Almost too beautiful to shoot. Came in PERFECT condition with not a blemish on the weapon. These are highly prized and I am not so sure S&W will make them for long. But I am not sure. I don't have any issues with recoil one handed (left or right), but it is heavy and loud. If you can lay your hands one, I highly recommend getting this model.
Fun to shoot. Use good quality ammo. Some folks at the club loved it and asked. Worth ever thin dime.

Buds is of course amazing. And the 629 is without a doubt the finest weapon I’ve ever owned. It’s a bit more expensive than a Taurus, but I’d rather have a Cadillac than a Honda.

Wow. Just Wow. Don’t settle for a Buick (Taurus) when you could own a Cadillac for a little more. I’m a very happy man.

By far the coolest handgun I own. I’ve always wanted to own a Smith, now I do. I would recommend this .44 magnum to anyone. Cool factor is off the chart! Fit and finish is what you would expect, Buds layaway program made it easy. This is my 5th purchase through Buds, and they haven’t disappointed yet.

Beautiful gun. Shoots smooth. Great service from Buds. Only wish Buds would offer some kind of discount to frequent buyers such as myself. going to slow down my purchases until they do so.

The Smith & Wesson 629 44 Mag is a Man's gun!! When firing 240 grain Magnum, it is very, very, loud and it kicks like a mule!! When you start firing at the gun range, everyone will know you have arrived and anyone else within half a mile. All that being said, load 44 special 180 or 200 grain ammo and your daughter, wife, or girlfriend can enjoy it. (Some may not have a problem with the Magnum.) It is a beautiful gun, has a history and after all, it's a Smith & Wesson. It really is loud and really does have a ton of recoil when firing the magnum ammo, but for a great time at the range and for protection, load up with 44 special. The pictures and videos of the 629 does not give it justice. When you unbox it, you will be wowed. In fact, when I picked mine up at the FFL, the employees gathered around it and was as wowed as me. It is built like a tank and will last long after we are gone. It is a gun that can be passed from generation to generation. May be the best model revolver ever made.

Have bought several guns from Buds the know their business. Now for the review. This is a quality S&W with excellent single and double action trigger. I have been shooting handguns for 60 years. Most 44 full house loads in other models including S&W have quite a bit of recoil. This pistol is a pussy cat to shoot and very little muzzle flash. For target shooting 44 special work fine. I think the reduced recoil is Do to the grip position.
