    Default 629 Back Packer

    Little help needed.
    Just wondering if the one with the paw prints on the cyclander is an older or newer model.
    Thanks
    Big Joe.

    I vote older. At least the ones I've seen.

    I have an older one (double digit serial #) that I have had for over 10 years and it doesnt have paw prints on the cylinder.

    It has a griz on the right side behind the cylinder and alaska backpacker on the bbl. thats it.

    Heck of a nice handgun, wish I would picked up a couple of them. that 3" bbl isnt really all that bad.

    Last time I looked Fred Meyers in Soldotna had one of each. The older model was on "sale" for 799 if my memory serves. I used quotes because it seems everything is always on sale at Fredys. When tourists go in they must think they've hit the mother lode on sale prices....I find it a tad annoying.

    There's a brand-new one @ Fred-Meyer in Wasilla. Hi-viz front sight and paw-prints on the cylinder.

    Heres an original from the first run of limited edition back in the 90's (I believe it was around 97 or so)

    Default Yes! $889.99

    Funny you should mention this one. I own the M629-4, which is the Mountain Gun, and carry that on the chest deep in the bush I like it because they lightened it and slimmed the overall apperance much like the .44 special.

    The one your inquiring about (Backpacker--etched print on wheel) I was marveling at yesterday at the Fred Meyers on Abbott here in Anchorage. This is the new M629-6. As your aware the -6 is the latest (6th) installment of the classic 629.

    This one is priced at $889.99

    I'm a gun enthusiast and made my rounds yesterday, so get 'em while you can. Semi-autos are wiped out EVERY WHERE!!!!
