Part of the read.....

Many people do not realize that of the group of Dirty Harry Holsters that were made for the Prop House that supplied the Production Company, a couple were for a 5" barrelled S&W "N" Frame (with an old-style tension screw that had long been eliminated due to functional problems); the holster used in the film was actually one of those 5" models, not the proper 6.5" models that were supplied. This can be seen in certain shots in the first film where the face of the cylinder sits midway in the cylinder cut-out. I acquired exclusive rights to the 6 ˝” Model 29, proper Holster— with the tighter spring .........

You have to wonder why they would use the 5" holster instead of the 6.5" ones. In the scene where Harry is at the hospital getting the shotgun shot picked out of his leg after foiling the bank robbery, you can see his gun does not fit his holster.

I'll have to look at that scene more closely next time.

I got my Dade speed loaders the other day. There is no way they would work speed loading the 29 without cutting away at the factory stocks. I tried speedloading my 629 with speed loader cut outs and they don't work on those grips either!!

Possibly the rubber stocks might work with the Dade speed loader, but I didn't try them to make sure.

One possible problem with these speed loaders, if you drop them just right, you have 6 cartridges sliding all over the ground...

If the Dade speedloaders don't work with the S&W stocks what do they work with? That is odd you'd market a product to augment another item and it doesn't work with it.

Just think - one of the first choices to play Harry Callahan was Frank Sinatra. I liked Frank for a lot of reasons, but it would have been a mediocre and short-lived series if fate had not taken it to Clint. One story goes that Frank had injured his wrist and didn't think he wanted to hold the big gun and fire it one handed, even with movie blanks. Don't know if it's true, but it's hard to imagine anyone else but Eastwood in that role now. Clint made Harry an icon.
The 29 was so popular back then because of the movie I ordered one and got it a year later. Had some bills to pay so I had to regretfully sell it. I feel bad about it so I bought this one to take its place.

I wonder if anyone ever went swimming in the slough looking for the badge winged into it at the end of the movie.

Great thread!!! My next acquisition will be a 29-2. Keep going back and forth between 6" and 6 1/2". Thinking a 6 1/2"er with some of the DH stuff would be fun to have.

I already have the Magnum Force bad guy gun (4" Python) so I guess I need to get Harry's.

Hello to everyone! This is my first post in this forum, and there´s no better thread to start than this.

Couple of months ago i purchased my first revolver, this beautiful 29-2 from 1975, in great condition (the pictures don´t do justice). I grew up watching Dirty Harry´s in 80´s, and this is one childhood dream come true

I meet the SFPD officer who has the 2211 badge number many years ago while getting ready for a demonstration in downtown SF. He was a LT in the motorcycle portion of the SFPD. He said he had been offered everything from motorcycles to money for that badge. The SFPD allows officers to swap badges if they so desire. Not sure what happened to the badge as it has been so long since I saw him. I retired so am sure he did too.
