Hello, can anyone tell me if a m-29-10 will fit a m-29-2 barrel, and can I expect the blue to be similar.
Thank you

Anything is possible with the right amount of money. But,,,, the threads changed at the 29-3 to a 'crush fit' when S&W stopped pinning the barrels

Thank you for the info. Im trying to find a 8 3/8 barrel for the m-29-10 and it seems this animal is not available.
Thanks

Sheldon, the long barrels are 'out of favor' with most of the shooting populace right now so buying an 8 3/8 barreled 29-anything might end up being the cheaper way to go anyway.

All N-Frame barrel threads are the same so it should work. The "crush" fit is a non-issue. In any barrel swap, the thread must be timed in order to get the front sight correctly aligned. Ditto for adjusting the B/C gap. That said, unless you have the special tools and knowledge to do this job, just selling your existing 29 and buying an 8 3/8" model is probably the best way to go-as previously mentioned.
