  • 629 Back Packer

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

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

      Do you know where I might find one to purchase?

        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.

              The most current.

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

                  They have new ones at Fred Meyer's in Juneau, too.

                    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!!!!
