Only two, a 627-0 and a 627-PC UDR.





Edit: Forgot about this one. I'm sure it counts as half...



A second edit:
Make that four...

A 629-5 Classic Carry was added to the stable in 2013.

Default A pair of 686's sans flutes

National Match version, 5" barrel, circa 1989, 1 of 500, supposedly the result of a collaboration with Bill Davis, product code 104254.




Classic Hunter, circa 1988, Product Code 104249



The Hogue grip shown is actually not the original, which was the same brand and configuration, but made of soft rubber. The one here is an earlier hard nylon type (just my preference). Also, for whatever reason this gun came with a plain rear sight rather than the white outline type it supposedly should've had.

Actually, I think your 686 Classic Hunter has the correct rear sight blade. Mine also has a black ramp front and no white-outline rear and as I recall (too lazy to get up and check), the SCoSW lists that sight package.

I bought a supposedly unfired 686 Classic Hunter from a person who supposedly bought the gun from the heir of a collector who supposedly never fired it - you know how that goes. Anyway, the original stocks, which were checkered targets, according to my gun's box label and the SCoSW, were replaced with smooth targets but I have since refitted some nice checkered targets. I hesitate to fire it just in case it is virgin.

Below are four photos of my 686CL - one of the seller's with the smooth stocks, one of the box label and two current ones.

I REALLY like those National Match guns - if anyone knows the whereabouts of one for sale, I'd appreciate knowing about it.

Ed, at the risk of getting too far off-topic, I bought my Classic Hunter new, and while the box label would suggest to me that it should've come with wood target stocks, the soft Hogues were what were on it. I saw another NIB Classic Hunter a couple years ago, and it also had the soft Hogues and plain rear sight leaf.

I actually have two of these as a result of an unforeseen acquisition incident, but I like them so much I am keeping both.

I am fond of the un-fluted: here are mine, 629-2, 610-2, 627-0, and a 629-6 PC-from left to right.

All gone but the 629-6 PC now-great guns all-I am grateful I had a chance to own them.

One of the guns on my short-list, is an exact reproduction of Gary Oldman's custom/shortened 629 "Classic Hunter" from the film Leon (The Professional) One of its several striking features is its unfluted cylinder
After I get a 1006, that'll be the next pistol I save up for.

I don't actually own one of these, but it would be a great coffee-table ornament and conversation starter: the .600 Nitro Express Pfeifer-Zeliska. (Also available in 458 Winchester Magnum for those who are going to wuss out on the big model.)

TonyRogers.com - Pfeifer-Zeliska .600 Nitro Express Handgun

15 pounds each, and costing over a thousand dollars a pound. Anybody want one for Christmas?

There are videos available of one of these shooting off a bench, but that one has fluted cylinders. These guns are definitely cooler without.

Here are a couple of photos of my Smith & Wesson Model 25-7 in 45 Colt sporting a set of Roger's grips. Came with a 5" barrel and balances perfectly. Matte blue bead blasted factory finish. It's as accurate as it is beautiful

That is the longest barreled Super Blackhawk I have ever seen.

Are you sure the factory box does not say "Super Duper" Blackhawk...

A sincere thanks for some of your pictures, I'm going to use them for wallpaper on my phone. Here's my 629-6 PC with 8 3/8" barrel.

I started an account just to get in on this thread. I love revolvers sans flutes, it's the only way I'll have them.

Here are my two

Smith & Wesson Performance Center Model 327 JM (Jerry Miculek version). 8 shot 357 magnum, 5 barrel, titanium barrel shroud & cylinder, with a scandium frame.



Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan 454 Casull.



I'll hopefully be picking up a S&W Performance Center 629 Competitor soon.
