The Gunslingers inc Kenai chest rig looks like just what I need for my S&W 629 mountain gun 44 mag. Itís slightly different than a standard 629, including barrel profile and a little material on the cylinder. I contacted the company and they got back to me right away. Unfortunately they donít have experience with this model, so theyíre unable to answer whether it fits correctly. Anyone have experience with this combo? Thanks

No experience with the Kenai.

As an alternative, but Diamond D may be an option to consider for you.  They have multiple Model 629 options in the drop down, but I'd advise just contacting them and asking them.  I have the Model 627 Performance Center model, and it wasn't in their drop down but they made me a holster to fit it.  I ended up modifying my holster a little as I put a red dot sight on my pistol, so had to cut a notch for that.  I like these holsters quite a bit, especially with the extra pouches on the shoulder strap for my moon clips.

I also carry the S.W. 629 Mountain Gun. (My hunting leases are all in Grizzly country). I use a Galco cross draw that I am very happy with.  It does not get in the way of anything even while driving.
Galco makes their holsters gun and calibers specific.

I run a 329PD in a Kenai that's modified for my Kifaru belt 😉 Works great

Thanks everyone, Iím fairly certain it would work but since theyíre fairly expensive (I donít mind paying for quality!) Iím Hoping someoneís tried this combo. I believe theyíre style relies on a snug fit.

This doesnít sound like Adam at all. I have had them fix / adjust holsters in the past and they do it with no questions.   I canít imagine he would not refund money for a holster that is unused if the customer was not happy.

I think this was a question from Pnwrider. I emailed them about fitment and they didnít know since they arenít familiar with this pistol. Iím just hoping someone knows before I order since Iíd prefer a custom color combo. If I canít verify beforehand Iíll probably order a stock color in case it doesnít work out. Iím happy with their attempts to answer my question

Where are you located? Iíve got one for my g40 that you could try on if it would help. would give you a good idea on length at least (g40 has a 6Ē barrel). Your revolver is likely a little wider so wouldnít be apples to apples. Iím Renton highlands area and commute down to auburn/fed way once or twice a week.

Thanks for the offer. Iím down in Grays Harbor.  Iím thinking Iíll probably purchase a standard color and if it wonít work send it back. Iím mostly concerned about how snug it fits around the cylinder since I mountain bike a fair amount

I use the Diamond D for my N framed 6" Smith 41 mag. It can be worn 2 ways , as a chest rig or off to the side. Chest rig is out of the way for everything!
