Magnum Contest

The guns used on the Magnum Contest*

*Please see note at foot of this page.

 Smith & Wesson Model 629 .44 Magnum

Became legendary following its appearance in the Clint Eastwood movie “Dirty Harry” in the 1970s. Still pretty much as powerful as handguns get and certainly one of the heaviest recoils. Often carried by Park Rangers and others at risk of bear attack. Anything less just wouldn’t work! One of the most popular on the Top Gun Tours with British visitors.

  • Weight: 1.33 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: .44 Magnum
  • Capacity: 6 rounds

 

Colt King Cobra

Similar to the Smith & Wesson 686 the Colt King Cobra revolver, chambered in the .357 Magnum also accepts .38 Special cartridges. King Cobra was based on the earlier Trooper revolvers but featured a more modern design with full length underbarrel lug and solid top barrel rib. Its sights are fully adjustable. Like its more powerful twin, the Colt Anaconda (.44 Magnum), all King Cobras were made from stainless steel. The King Cobra is an all-around versatile handgun, suitable for sport, police duty, self-defence and even hunting.

  • Weight: 1.20 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: .38 Special / .357 Magnum
  • Capacity: 6 rounds

 

Taurus 94 .22LR Revolver

A handy short barrel revolver for target practice and ideal for teaching beginners how a revolver works before progressing to larger more powerful guns. The Model 94 is a 9 shot in .22 Long Rifle, the world’s most popular cartridge. Pleasantly dependable whether Stainless or Blue Steel and with durable rubber grips. A shooter’s fondest memories can be of days spent in the field with one of these finely crafted revolvers.
