The Smith and Wesson Performance Center is now producing a special Model 629 revolver called the Stealth Hunter. The Stealth Hunter was built from the ground up to provide a superb handgun hunting platform.
The Stealth Hunter features:
- Ball Detent Lock-up
- Forged Color Case Trigger with Over-travel Stop
- Forged Color Case Hammer
- Old-School Pinned Sear
- MagnaPorted Barrel
- Aluminum Performance Center Case
The barrel is 7 1/2″ long, making the overall length of the 629 just under 13″ at 12.9″. Sights are fully adjustable with a red ramp front that is dovetailed into place and a blade notch rear sight. However, most hunters will probably opt to add a scope or reflex sight on the mount.
The revolver holds six rounds of the powerful Magnum ammunition. Â It will, of course, also shoot 44 Special loads. Â The gun can be fired single action or double action. Â Weight is 56 ounces without ammo loaded. Â The synthetic grip is labeled Smith & Wesson, but is made by Hogue.
