    Has anyone seen the new Smith 21-4 .44 Special?

    It's an N-Frame with a full size cylinder. It's also a blued carbon steel gun with a "skinny" 4" barrel, shrouded ejector rod, wide "half moon" pinned front sight with a large, squared off rear notch milled in the top strap. It's a round butt with Ahrends smooth coco-bolo wood grips.

    Yes, it does have the "lock" and also a frame mounted firing pin. There is also a gold "Thunder Ranch" logo on the right side of the frame behind the cylinder. Left side of barrel is stamped .44 S&W Special CTG. SKU # 161237.

    Wish I had a PIC to post but, if you want to see it, it's in the Nov/Dec issue of American Handgunner, on the Cover and featured inside. Good looking gun, although I could have done without the Thunder Ranch gold logo.

    Chunk in some 250gr Black Hills and you have a awful good woods, target and defense gun.

    If it's gold label wasn't enough of a deterrent for me, it's MSRP of $958 certainly is!

    Because Clint Smith had the gun designed to shoot to point of aim with the newly developed Black Hills .44 Special 250gr cast semi-wadcutter ammunition.

    There are so many different .44 magnum loadings out there that you'd need adjustable sights. And if you want a .44 magnum with adjustable sights and a 4" skinny barrel just get a S&W Mountain Gun.

    So make it a 29 and regulate it for that ammo.

    As many have already said, "NO THANKS"!!!

    It's really a pity too because they could've made this great but they missed big time! I would only buy one without the lock, frame-mounted firing pin & gold bird crap!
