Can anyone tell me what year my S&W Model 29-2 was made?
I no longer have the M29-2 8-3/8" gun and case. It was from 1980 and I acquired it with all the original packaging, including the shipping to distributor box. So, I know the wooden box is original. Since yours is from 1979 and mine was from 1980, apparently the box design changed for 1980.Very nice! What year is your 29? This is a photo of mine from Gun Broker, can you tell me what years the cases changed?
The $100 ones are usually missing their internals. I think I paid $300 for a minty one for my 4" Nickel 25-5. I also had a custom made box for my M1911A1 Colt, actually better than a S&W box. I think it was around $300. Had it made for my 1943 Colt and a box of 1943 GI Ball ammo.
