    S&W Model 24 .44 Special

    I just got a 4" S&W model 24 .44 Special revolver. I'd been looking for one for a long time, and even though I just got a 3.5" model 29 .44 Magnum a few weeks ago, I couldn't pass it up. This is one of the limited production models they made in the 1980's. It's not one of the original 1950's models that are worth a fortune these days, but it's still a really fine gun and I can't wait to shoot it. I probably won't carry it very often, but I do have a Fist holster that fits it. Of course, I put Ahrends combat grips on it, as I do all my revolvers.

    Here's a pic of the new gun and one of all 3 of my S&W's:

    Nice..very nice.

    I shoot one occasionally that a freind of mine has. I've tried to talk him out of it several times but he refuses to budge.
    It is a sweet shooter and very accurate.

    Looking at that pic makes me want one all over again...

    N-frame Smith,

    If it's a limited Lou Horton [ LH ] run, it was likely 1983. I have the LH 44mag limited from the same year.

    Nice piece sir.

    Hello. Though mine is a longer bbl'd version, the Model 24 remains my favorite revolver for shooting at the range or wagging along sometimes when at the deer lease. If you enjoy your revolver even half as much as I have mine, I think you will agree that your money was well spent.


    Though this one is not at all considered for concealed carry by me, I do think that the easy-to-handle recoil in a 4" steel N-frame should allow for quick repeat shots if necessary.
    Best.

    Very nice Smith. I am always looking for a new (to me) Smith revolver.
