The Smith & Wesson M29 .44 Magnum revolver is a weapon appearing in Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76. It was also supposed to appear in Van Buren (the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios).


The Smith & Wesson Model 29 is a six-shot, double-action revolver chambered for the .44 Magnum cartridge, manufactured since 1955. This large frame revolver offers excellent accuracy, firepower, and reliability. Multiple models remain available and quite popular in the wastelands, from the shortened 4 1/2 inch variant to the full size, high end monsters with scopes.[1] By default, the revolvers come with tritium illuminated sights.[2]
