    Vintage S & W gun ads

    Don't you wish Model 29's were still this cheap! I'd even buy one with a lock for this price.



    And how about you .41 Magnum guys

    David,
    Sign me up for as many as you can get at that price!
    Thought you might also enjoy these 1950's ads.

    TL,
    Glad you saved that clamshell case and the correct sight-adjustment tool.
    Your original investment has appreciated handsomely!

    Below is a photo of the printing block used for the first ad shown in this thread that appeared in the December 1956 issue of American Rifleman. The block is stamped DEC 1956 on the back. It was purchased from a factory employee many years ago.

    Don: Hanging on to my model29 through hard times becuase of my appreciation for it has kinda placed it beyond monetary value.

    The adds you posted are the same as in my 1956 Shooters Bible.

    Oh yeah, during the "Dirty Harry" craze, when 29 prices went sky high, I managed to get a 4 inch 29-2 for $290. I felt I'd made a deal, still have it too.
