Smith & Wesson's MODEL 629 .44 MAGNUM HUNTER is the answer if you're ready to ditch your long gun and start hunting like a western badass. The Smith & Wesson Performance Center has a product line chock full of hunting handguns, but the MODEL 629 .44 MAGNUM HUNTER is a standout for handgun hunters.
Created from the ground up with fine-tuned precision, the two-toned revolver is stainless steel and comes complete with a custom-tuned action, a dovetailed front sight, Picatinny rail, and a custom muzzle brake.
Ditch the stock red dot sight it comes with and upgrade to an Aimpoint Micro H-2. You'll be the fastest gun in the West. $1,369; smith-wesson.com
