Lawman Hogleg

I came across this bad boy in our warehouse at Guns.com.

An early 4-inch Smith & Wesson Model 629 (no dash) .44 Mag from around 1981-82, back when the company billed the gun as the “Stainless Magnum” because such a thing was rare.

Recessed and pinned, red target insert, target hammer, serrated trigger, custom grips. Nice

The 629, introduced in 1979, was the stainless version of Elmer Keith’s Model 29, which was first introduced back in the 1950s.

This bad boy.

One of the coolest things about this particular 629 I came across is that it is named to what is likely a Texas lawman who picked up his commission 46 years ago.

That’s something you don’t see every day.

If anyone knows of a “B.F. Parrish” who wore a badge in Texas in the 1970s, drop me a line.
