Auto pistol magazine for the appropriate cartridge makes a great "speed loader" for a revolver in the same caliber....especially a single action.

Flat, relatively light & easy to carry plus it reduces fumble time when reloading.

My one and only, a Mag-na-port Combat mini on a 29-3.

Bronco,

I am glad to see that I am not the only one carrying around CCI shot shells. My dad toted a Colt Trooper with a cylinder full when we were out mowing grass along the Medina river in my youth.

Very nice model 29

Had a .25-2 with a lot of blue wear cut to 3 1/2. Andy Horvath cut the barrel and added a Weigand interchangeable front sight base. It was reblued by a local gunsmith. Wanted to round butt the gun but a 3 1/2 model 27 is a square butt gun and I wanted it to look like a 27. Larry

I'd say the big-bore-snubby is back in fashion for sure... Just take a look at their prices on GunBroker. A LHS in good shape easily goes for $2K+ now! I'm glad I got both of mine when they were first coming back in style instead of now! And I've seen a lot of newly manufactured M625's and M629's here as of late as well and they certainly command a premium as well.
