Top 44 Magnum shipped in December 1956 and the bottom one shipped in May 1956. Both are in mint condition. Click on the photo for a better look.

Yeah, but his guns do; those are only two years younger than me. I never tire of seeing what he puts on display, those are beautiful.

Thanks for the wonderful photos. Both are "birth year" guns for me haha. Among my deepest wishes is one that I could find and afford a 4" from 1956. Alas not to be, however if anyone would like to gift me one for my upcoming birthday in a couple of weeks I would be eternally grateful !

Those 65 year old beauties look better than the brand new in the box model 29s I bought in the 1970's!!

I generally don't shoot the first year guns, but have put a few rounds through the 44 shipped in May 1956. It shoots as good as it looks .

I congratulate you for shooting with them. I think guns should be fired, with a few exceptions.
