I wanted more of shooter than a safe queen but there isn't a whole lot to choose from, the Model 29's in CA. have heavy wear and high prices, I found almost no Model 29's 8 3/8 that would qualify as C&R. From the homework I've done there isn't a whole lot of difference in functionality vs -1 thru 8,

Hey 85,

Welcome to S&W!

Great looker!

If you load? Highly recommend the 240gr LSWC over 7.5gr Universal. WLP. Should give you 900fps. Easy on the recoil.

Later, Mark

thank you thank you, anybody care to put a price estimate on it? I'd like to see how much I stepped on my johnthomas, it's advertised as a model 29, 1960 should make it a dash 1, has box, factory letter, described as mint, lightly used,

Hey 85,

If? You got it for less than $1200? You are ahead of the game...

Great pistol. Thanks for posting. If you get a chance put some .44 Special rounds through it, they are way different than the.44 Magnums.
oh boy
