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. By default, the revolvers come with tritium illuminated sights.
A full size M29 with a permanent scope fixed on top of its barrel. Offers excellent range and performance against a variety of targets. However, the need for more precise aiming reduces the rate of fire.
