S&W has done it again!
Stumbled across this one the S&W website: http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/w...layErrorView_Y
33 oz for a 6 1/2" barrel .44 Magnum vs. 45 oz for the 629.
And this is with the SS cylinder - with a titanium cylinder it will drop some more weight - maybe go under 30 oz.
Also check out the grips - these should be an improvement over the orginal 329 PD grips without adding a lot of bulk or weight.
For most hunting in the lower 48 this should do the trick. Also a great carry gun for Alaska for those that feel adequately equipped with a .44 Mag.
