If you want it to do all that? Get the Dan Wesson with all the barrels.
Quite the find Doc.
I know some folks over on the S&W forum who'd almost immediately drop 10x what you paid for those Farrant's. And 5-6x on the Spegal's.
Handmade grips by a master maker are "the shiznit" imo.
Thanks for sharing them.
I'm going for a S&W 65 3" ..
A 681/686 comes a close second though
Well I do not disagree with any post so far. My choice is S&W Model 58. I got an old one and a new one.
Yes, the folks on the S&W are well aware of my find. The one set pictured, but not mounted were sold on ebay - turns out they were for a Colt long frame DS, which I don’t have. Sold in less than 15 minutes after posting. Turned $20 into $300. Probably could have got more, but didn’t want to be greedy. I’ll keep the other 2 and Spegels.
The hunting puts a little kink in it for me.
If it’s just one a the budget isn’t too tight- though my suggestions aren’t crazy money:
S&W 19/66 or 586/686
Colt Trooper MK III
Ruger Security Six or GP100
The Smith or Colt will have better triggers. Any of the above in a 4 inch barrel.
If hunting deer, pigs, and larger, I want a 6 inch barrel which is a little ungainly for self defense carry.
Enjoyed reading all these posts, lots of nice pics. I consider myself more of an end user than enthusiast and S&W is my preference. Went into law enforcement after returning from Vietnam, in 1973 we transitioned from N-frames (assume M28) to the M19. I loved the change and the high rise rig for duty carry.
Haven't taken pictures yet, but today I picked up a mint 27-2 5" (1973), just love the way it balances. IIRC, Skeeter Skelton liked the 27 5" back in the day.
Pics will be posted in the next few days, but it is about as new looking as I've seen.
The 5” is one of the most desirable, second only to the 3.5” version.
I do think every gun owner should have at least One Revolver. I was trained to shoot a S&W Revolver and I carried one for over 10 years as my Duty Weapon. I found because I mastered trigger control of my Revolver, the other semi automatic guns were much easier for me to shoot. I now have one Revolver in my collection, The S&W Model 638 Snub Nose but I plan to purchase one more Revolver before the end of the year.
I'm a revolver guy, SW Model 14. Best trigger out of the box. (My Colt Trooper Mark3 was close)
I kinda think that it would depend on the gun enthusiast.
There are far too many really nice revolvers out there to choose one to fit everyones needs.
S&W N frame.
With a 3 inch barrel, round butt. This would be the perfect concealed carry revolver for me.
1) Smith & Wesson Model 29 or 629
2) Smith & Wesson Model 586 or 686
3) Smith & Wesson Model 27
4) Smith & Wesson Model 19 or 66
5) Colt Anaconda, Python, King Cobra in various finishes
6) Ruger Single Actions in .22, 357 Magnum, 44 Magnum, 45 Long Colt just for fun.
Just my thoughts.
When you get right down to it, Revolvers are like Lay's Potato chips, you can't have just one.
The Classic Hunter is my favorite Model 29 variation. Yours is fantastic.

I guess I’m good; model 17, 6” target masterpiece, bought new in 1974. Model 60 .38spl, 2” bought new in 1975, Model 66, 4”bull barrel, fixed sights, bought new in 1975 1/2. Probably shouldn’t forget the 3” Detective special, bought new in 1977. Yup...I’m just fine
A Colt SAA or Ruger Blackhawk/Vaquero/Single Six.
But I would bet you are thinking double-action.
If that's the case, Smith & Wesson 686/586 (especially without the stupid child safety lock).
My first gun ever was a Ruger GP100, which I still have, but I admit the 686 has better balance and trigger.
