Default 29-5 Classic Hunter

Bought this 1991 model new in 1993, fell in love with it the second I saw it at the LGS. Added the combat grips a few years ago, found them on eBay, thought they were expensive then, feels reasonable now (prices have gone crazy on those).









I shot it a fair bit over the years, no safe queen.

50 m off hand





25 m off hand

Sweet looking gun - thanks for sharing. Nice shooting, too.

Nice 29's! I am not into to combat stocks myself. Never found any that felt right in my hand. You can't afford to buy a bunch that won't do the job.
I really like the looks of the un fluted cylinders! Would really like to own a 25-7. I have a 6" 29-3, and recently a nickel 29-2, 4". Haven't fired the -2 yet. Bob
