Big thanks to MrMarvin and to Rob at R & R airgun repair. This Daisy Model 44 - replica of the classic Smith and Wesson Model 29 immortalized by Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry had long been the holy grail that I had sought for my collection. They are quite rare and when MrMarvin told me he had one, I jumped on it. I then sent it off to Rob who replaced a broken hammer, supplied a couple more speed loaders and re-sealed it for me. This gun is terrific. It shoots hard and is quite accurate. It is one of the most rare airguns in my entire collection.

Good link, thanks!

I'm amazed that there are not more of these floating around. Then again, I tried hard to get one back when they are in production and could not find any.

I've always had a thing for revolvers. The Colt Python in particular. I have 5 Crosman 357s classic 4", 6" and 8", classic "silver" 8" and a modern 6". I also have a Colt branded Python 6" and two Swiss Arms 357s - 4" and 6" all of which use those dummy shells to load BBs. I have a good 18 or 20 revolvers in all.

Like I said I'm not really into revolvers, have a accumulated a few though,
you've got to get the DW715 if you don't already have it, and the new Schofield, love it, will also
get the nickel one if and when it comes out in pellet.
