My only .44 at the moment is a pre-29 that I picked up off a guy in 1971 for $150. It has gotten a little ugly from being carried over the 48 years I've owned it. It is just so silky smooth. Lately I have gravitated to the .41 with a 8 3/8 M57 and my new woods gun a M58 that I picked up a couple of years ago. I like them all. The .44 mostly just sees 240gr. cast over 6gr Bullseye anymore. It will go to one of my grandsons one of these days.
