Smith & Wesson Model 29 .44 Magnum -- “The Warthog”
This revolver was inspired by noted revolver creator Hamilton Bowen.
To test my metal working abilities, my mentor, Larry Lindstrom, had me do two conversions; the Ballester-Molina and the “Warthog,” a S&W Model 29 in 44 Magnum. Mr. Larry Lindstrom helped with the welding and shaping of the grip conversion, the shaping of the grips and the front sight conversion. This Model 29 started out with the 8-3/8” barrel.
Customization: Fine tuned single and double action. Front site taken from barrel cut off. Ported in-house. Millett rear sight. Lanyard ring installed. Texas Mesquite custom-made grips.
The Warthog is a hoot to shoot!
