Revolvers

Smith & Wesson Model 629 .44 Magnum

Became legendary following its appearance in the Clint Eastwood movie “Dirty Harry” in the 1970s. Still pretty much as powerful as handguns get and certainly one of the heaviest recoils. Often carried by Park Rangers and others at risk of bear attack. Anything less just wouldn’t work! One of the most popular on the Top Gun Tours with British visitors.

  •     Weight: 1.33 kg (empty)
  •     Calibre: .44 Magnum
  •     Capacity: 6 rounds

 

Smith & Wesson model 642 Revolver

A lightweight and compact double action only revolver.  Used by police and undercover officers as a easily concealed self defense weapon.  As with all revolvers it is generally more reliable and less complex to shoot than the semi-auto handguns, although the limited capacity (5 shots) and lower accuracy than larger guns means it is only generally used where concealability is required.

  • Weight: 0.43 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: .38 Special or .357 Magnum
  • Capacity: 5 rounds
