I am debating buying a few holsters for my 629 Mountain Gun. I seem to remember some time back this being a popular choice for the Mountain Gun. I am looking at this as a "woods" type of pistol, I have several considerably better options for concealed carry. I am wondering how much slop there is in the barrel channel since the Mountain Gun has a smaller barrel than the regular 629 or an Anaconda.

I don't mind paying the extra money for a Kramer (or other options), if the fit is going to be better.

For those of you that have the Cyclone for your Mountain Gun, how is the fit? Would you buy the holster again if you were starting over?

Even though the gun in my Bianchi 111 isn't a mountain gun but a S&W 28 w/ the 4"bbl, I do find the fit very nice and there doesn't seem to be much movement of the gun. This is also my field gun setup so its been money well spent.

I think they are good holsters. They ride a bit low though, so it probably wouldn't work to well for ccw.

The one I'm using right now for my single actions is the "Single Action Outdoorsman" by Galco. About the only difference between it and the Bianchi is the snap. The Bianchi has a thumb snap and the Galco is a Tom Threepersons type.

I use this holster quite a bit, I carry a 4" 629 in one when I'm tramping around in the woods. I wouldn't even try to conceal carry with this rig, but for open carry it's a secure holster, draws easy and protects the gun well. It rides high enough on the hip (I tend to place this holster a little behind my hip bone) to be easy to draw, but low enough to not gore your kidneys with the revolver butt.

When I'm carrying a long gun and a handgun, I use a crossdraw holster. The 111 can work for this, but the cant is a bit off to really work. For the crossdraw setup, I have a custom western rig for the 629. I bought it on-line a few years ago. Here is a link to one that is similar: http://www.circlekb.com/page/CKCG/PROD/Dblrigs/biggamehtr

I REALLY like this western rig when I'm carrying a rifle. The belt has loops for both .44 and .30-30 rounds. It's a little spendy, but it's a joy to wear and I get a LOT of comments on how cool it is from the fellow hunt camp guys.

I'm a bit jealous of your mountain gun, I've been looking for a nice shooter for some time (without the lock) and they are either looser than my first prom date or they want more $$$ than I want to spend.

You asked if I'd by again? Yep, have one for the 6" 629 too!
