    Original Smith & Wesson Classic Hunter Model 29 .44 Magnum

    Hi All,

    I thought I would ask for help. I have an opportunity to buy what the seller is calling one of the first run of Smith & Wesson Classic Hunter Model 29 .44 Magnum. I've had the chance to shoot it and it is the most accurate revolver I've ever handled. It's in brilliant condition. It's serial number is AYZ69XX.

    My question is how do I know it is a first run Classic Hunter, and what is fair dollar range to pay for it?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    It could be correct, the serial # fits the correct time frame. Sorry, I can't help w/ value. PS: welcome to the forum.

    IT'S RELATIVELY NEW! I thought that a M-29 would be older than that. When was the original M-29 produced? That must've been a special run. Bob

    First off welcome, secondly you have to be a Brit, or Canadian....? " Brilliant" kind of gives it away...

    to the forums from the Wiregrass, gailon! The best way to ID a classic hunter is by its product code. IF you have the box, it is printed on the label. If you don't have the box, the description and serial number are all you can go by...or an historian's letter.

    Th e Classic Hunter: Lew Horton special, 29-3 Caliber – .44 Magnum, 6-shot non-fluted cylinder, 6” full lug barrel, adjustable four-position front sight, white outline rear blade, blue finish, Hogue rubber combat grips, N Target frame, square butt. Product code: 101230. Run of 5,000, 1987. ANIB $1250.

    (SCSW, 4th Ed., Page 236).
