    Hello my fellow gter's

    So I kinda want to treat myself to a new toy. Which one should I get? I am open to any other options too.

    1) Factory new S&W 629 .44 mag 6" barrel. Latest version, has the dreaded lock. $625. I don't have a .44 mag revolver and the only .44 mag I have is a DE with both .44 mag and .50 AE barrels.

    2) Colt 6920 $975. Already have a bushy M4 though.

    3) Another 1911

    4) Not a gun, but an SSAR slide fire stock for my bushmaster

    I'm kinda leaning towards the 629 since I think it is the best deal of the above.

    If it was me, I would get the S&W 629 44mag, that would add a very nice mag to you arsenal.

    For the 629, how about a classic version with a 5" barrel for $30 more?

    Yeah, I'd get the 6920, and then sell a bunch of your "collection" to put the awesome stuff necessary on it.

    Optics, rails, mags, ammo, light, sling, etc.

    But then I'm bored with sidearms, and pretty much consider them useless as anything other than to CCW. I wouldn't buy a pistol at this point, as a rifle is just so much more interesting to me.

    There's nothing more awesome than a fully kitted-out AR for me. Hell, I need to get a shotgun next, not a pistol.

    Get an older 629. I'd never buy one with the stupid lock.

    Colt, or other quality AR.

    Don't like S&W revolvers with a lock. Out of your list I'd go for the Colt 6920.

    I'd go for that S&W as the price seems less than I have seen them recently; however I agree with the thought of an earlier one without a lock, if I could find one close to that price.

    $625 is a killer deal for a new 629, you will kick yourself for not getting it. The lock is an eyesore, but no big deal.

    I second this. I won't buy another S&W with a lock, until they remove it (sounds like I'll be waiting a while). Get the 6920; the price is right, and it can only increase in value with the current political climate.

    if it wasn't for the internal lock on the 629, that would be my pick.

    since you already have an M4, why not get Ms. Kalashnikova?

    Hmm.. I'd have to agree with the other people; Colt AR for sure. No knock on the other items you stated, but .44 Magnum ammo is getting high(!) dollar these days. Ditto .44 Spc. There's a benefit to have more than one firearm of the same caliber, than having more than one firearm of different caliber. Logistically speaking of course! :supergrin:

    Since you asked for suggestions........If you don't have something in 22LR, that should be a prerequisite.

    Good point, a Ruger 22/45 tricked out with Volquartsen internals should run under $500, a 10/22 with VQ parts and a decent scope shouldn't be much more.
