Default PERFORMANCE CENTER® MODEL 629 .44 MAGNUM® HUNTER

New toy! The modern Dirty Harry.

Video putting the first rounds through it: YouTube

The UTG red dot was always coming loose so I decided to ditch it.

Nice! I've tried over 15 different factory full horse power loads in my M629-5... The most accurate large bore factory load I've ever shot is the Hornady "LeverEvolution" line, 225grain, FTX Bullet rated at 1410fps. Now I don't get that velocity from a 3" barrel but you may with that "Modern Dirty Harry" Revo!

That's one sharp looking revolver. Curious if you plan to leave the red dot they come with on it? They might be perfectly fine, I don't know, but a $40 red dot on a $1200 gun seems incongruous. In any case, I want one.

Well now that's how you enter a forum . Welcome .Let us know how it does at the range and I also would be interested in how that red dot holds up.

I bought a PC SKU: 170334 over a year ago and was really impressed with its accuracy. One big hole at 25 yards.
