    Found a good one today!

    Hi Folks,

    I was at the local gun show today when a guy that I have done a few gun deals with in the past came walking in.
    Was talking to him and a few other S&W guys when he stated that out in his car he had brought his pre-29. He wasn't sure that he wanted to bring it in and have a strap put on it and have everyone fondle it , but stated he needed to sell it.
    We went out to have a look at it and I saved him the hassle of bringing it in , and gave him his $1800 asking price.
    It is a pre-29 4 inch 4 screw with hard to find box and all tools and a factory letter too. Really it is in very nice shape.
    So happy I went to the show today.

    Twig.

    OK, now the fit of jealousy is over, congrats on a terrific acquisition.

    Great find TWIG and the fact that a letter from Mr Jenks comes with it is the icing on the cake.

    Do you think those are the Goncalo Alves grips mentioned by Roy? Could the finish be right with that red/brown color?

    I gotta think w/ a good measure of brown wood stain your grip color could be correct. Answered my own question.
