S&W made some 5" 45s with tapered barrels for a state police contract. There was some over run but they are scarce. i have a couple 24-3s and m27/5" that I think are better balanced than 29-2s. I don't do Stainless guns either they go straight to trade pile.
Here's a couple more 29-2s and I raise 1 Ruger SBH 3 screw and a clunk 629.image.jpegimage.jpeg
