The large-size rimfire 629 Smith and Wesson is a Classic Series stainless-steel 6-round .44 Magnum/.44 Special revolver. This single-action/double-action (SA/DA) gun is a version of the classic blued Model 29 that debuted in 1955 that was the world’s most powerful handgun at the time.
The 629 Smith and Wesson9 has five different barrel lengths and three grip styles. Let’s examine them:
The smallest one is the 629 Deluxe with the 3.0” length barrel. This beauty has a stainless-steel frame, stainless-steel barrel and stainless-steel fluted cylinder. The grip has a beautiful grain, the famed Smith & Wesson logo, diamond texturing, three finger recesses and a nicely curved butt. In front, you’ve got a nicely visible red dot ramp front sight pinned atop the integral sight base. In back is an adjustable rectangular-notched white outline sight. This gun is 8.625” long overall and weighs 39.6 ounces.
There are several other versions you can get. They are the same as above except as follows.
The 629 Smith and Wesson Classic has a 4.125” length barrel, 9.63” overall length and 41.5-ounce weight. The difference between a Classic model and the Deluxe is this has a black synthetic grip with oval texturing and mild indents for the finger recesses, and it has the Smith & Wesson logo embossed (in black) on either side. The grip’s butt is gently curved along the bottom.
Next up is the 5.0” barrel 629 Smith and Wesson Classic. It is the same as above except the barrel length, 10.5” overall length and .44.7-ounce weight. The 6.0” barrel 629 Classic is the same as above except its barrel length, 11.63” overall length and 45.0-ounce weight.
