Classic. The full underlug is much cooler.

Full lug. With .44 magnum you will appreciate the extra weight.

Don't hold my feet to the fire but if I remember correctly when the film was made the S&W model 29 was so popular that they couldn't get one for the film so they used the model 57 .41 mag in it's place. Yes I'm a .41 mag fan.

The now iconic revolver carried by Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) in the film is a Smith & Wesson Model 29, chambered in .44 Magnum. As the script originally called for a S&W Model 29 with a 4" barrel, this eventually proved troublesome for the filmmakers, since the Model 29 was no longer in production at the time. Before shooting began, Eastwood contacted Bob Sauer (then a representative for Smith & Wesson) to acquire the gun for the film. It was a challenge, but Fred Miller at the plant had a couple assembled from parts eventually.
