To get the serial number , take the grips off and look on te butt of the frame.

The ranges of serial numbers are published in a book, the Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson. Generally, a member here that owns the book will happily look up a number for new visitors and new members.

Welcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! 1977 or 78. All the N 400,000 series of guns were made over those two years. How about posting some pictures of your gun so we can lust over it and drool on our keyboards?

Hey M,

Fine looking M 29!

Welcome to S&W!

You gain about 75fps/inch with the 44 Mag. 8-3/8" is the way to FLY! (plus, the longer barrel is a better sight radius whilst absorbing recoil)

Hey M,

240gr XTP. 21.5gr H 110/296. WLP.

For light work, 240gr LSWC. 7.5gr Universal. Fed 150.

For Leather.....Bianchi. Safariland. Roy's Hidden Thunder, Triple K, Hunter, PURDY GEAR,............etc

For 8-3/8" a shoulder rig makes a lot of sense..

Hunting, it keeps twigs/jaggers from catching on the revolver. Keeps the weather, snow & such, off the revolver. (freezing rain can/will freeze an exposed cylinder...leaving you a KLUB) LOLOLOL

Frees up both hands for field dressing, then dragging...

For a trip to the range, and lawn chores...Uncle Mike's makes a sturdy Nylon rig. Does a good job of protecting revolver from casual abuse.........LOL

Milt Sparks will craft you an EXCELLENT HOLSTER, Horse Hide if you desire....

Hope this helps.

Later, Mark
