Hello. I may take the plunge and get a S&W model 629 .44 magnum. I am looking at 629's with a full lug barrel. What would be the ideal barrel length? These are the factors I am considering: 1. Portability. 2. Felt recoil. 3. Accuracy. 4. Sight radius. Bearing those factors in mind, I am considering a 5" barrel or possible getting a 629 with a 6" or 6.5" barrel and having it cut down to 4". What would you guys recommend? I already have a 4" 625 and love the look and balance of it. I also have a 610 that has a 3 7/8" barrel and this barrel length seems to have an even better balance. Both of these have full-lug barrels and their recoil is easily controllable. How close to the recoil of my 625, or 610 would a .44 mag be in similar barrel lengths? Any and all opinions welcome. Thanks.
