luvfreedom: I just picked this up brand new. God I'm in love. You are lucky to have
been around when these were more readily available. Us youngsters have to
be a bit more patient getting the S&W classic revolvers since polymer guns
are so prevalent now a days. I have my sights set on a 27 next.
LEOPARDTWO: If you want to see it in a movie (other than an Eastwood one), see 'Point
Blank' with Lee Marvin. No one ever mentions the 29-4 in this excellent
Tony Bletas: What a sexy, sexy piece of finely crafted steel. Yes, I know, how can an
inanimate object be sexy? . But hey, it's a smith & wesson. Its got a 4
inch tube, its in 44 mag and its in blued steel. Enough said!
PRVeteran: Beautiful piece!
MrPete8680: DH Jr.!
oneeyedpatriot: Excuse me, I mean't Step Son!
sllovakista: Hi 1957Shep ! I want to buy this gun...but i see some videos of issues with
screwing the barrel of these guns whitch was made in 2011...whats ur
opinion on this? Did u have any problems with ur gun?
1957Shep: I have a shooting video up of the model 29-3 with the 8 3/8th inch barrel.
But have not gotten around to doing one with this gun yet. But I will
sometime. You should try doing a video with yours. If you have never shot
anything bigger than 9mm, you might want to get a box of 44 Special ammo
along with the 44 Mag ammo. That will give you a chance to get used to how
the gun shoots before you try full power loads.
TacticalTuber: I like that and it was the year that I was born.
1957Shep: There is no cure for gun addiction. Learn to live with it. Better yet,
enjoy it. :)
1957Shep: The N Frame Smiths are a class act for sure.
1957Shep: I`ve avoided the local shop for the last two weeks. Last time I was there,
he had a Kimber 82 full target with a vintage Redfield scope on
consignment. Only way I got out of there was that I didn`t have the check
book with me. Been afraid to go back. It might still be there. :) I have a
special weakness for quality rimfires.
bigjc12000: Beautiful gun.
oneeyedpatriot: Now that is so funny!
phishst1cks: pinned barrel and recessed cylinders..nice revolver
1957Shep: You should do a video with it some time. Don`t see many model 12s.
fire1777: Wish I still had mine. Very nice pistol. N frame fun!
captainpegs07: Thanks! I never thought about the frame square/round affecting the weight.
Did they make a full lug 29/629?
Rockin' Ron: You have a elegant piece. The older Smith's are much better than the newer
one's made today. And very rare indeed. The pinned barrel and the beveled
and recessed cylinder makes them very prize worthy.
TheLocknLoadChannel: Very Nice! I have the 6" and i love it!
MegaToren: What the freak did you link me to watch?!?!?
intoweapons: man, I love those shorter barrels :) the finish on that piece is pretty
sweet as well, thanks for sharing!
don stromberg: That's a beauty.
oneeyedpatriot: Thanks for the great video but gee thanks, now I am quite addicted
again!!!!This one is on my wish list again and I just subbed. Keep them
miche turner: I look forward to that! I was just reading more about the Dirty Harry gun.
Aparently the writer of the screenplay had a 4 inch Model 29 as Harrry's
gun but they couldnt find a 4inch when they were preparing to shoot the
movie so they got the 6 1/2. You 4 inch is the gun Harry should have had
redshaftedflicker: beauty, great piece.
Zach Funk: That makes.more since
Rockin' Ron: I own a new S&W Model 29-10 in 4" barrel. I've never seen as perfect of a
finish for a new gun than I see with yours. I also the S&W 50th anniversary
model 29 with 6.5 inch barrel and 24k gold engraved on right side panel.
Same type featured in the "Dirty Harry" film.
MegaToren: What the hell are talking about?
mikentommiann82807: Ok man thanks for the info. I am going to try an figure this out. I am more
on a semi-auto guy. But this is.my first revolver an now I want a Smith &
Wesson in .357 mag. I love the oldschool revolves. I don't care for the new
ones to much.
captainpegs07: You chose to forgo good manners when you feel you can get away with it?
1957Shep: You should do a video with it sometime.
1957Shep: Almost all of the 629s have an underlug barrel, but it`s rare on the model
MyLittleDiscolite: If I were betting the ranch on a sixgun, its going to be on the 29.
TheShermandale: Yet another awesome, gun. Thanks for sharing.
Zach Funk: Ihave a 357 version
alleric357: Great revolver, I have the 629 in the same configuration, love it!
1957Shep: You should do a video with it sometime.
miche turner: John Milius was the writer...and NRA life member. he also wrote and
directed Red Dawn!
sorichar: Pretty gun. I definitely prefer the blued M-29s over the stainless M-629s.
1957Shep: It would harm the collector value of the gun. But since you intend on
keeping it in the family, that wouldn`t really matter. Some middle ground
might be to have it engraved on the grip frame where it would be covered by
1957Shep: This one is a little over your limit. You might get down to 42 oz by
changing out the grips to some kind of rubber or synthitic. The reason you
see different weights listed for these revolvers is that there are a lot of
variations. Barrels from 3 inch to 10 1/2 inch with or without an under
lug. Square or round butt grip frame. Target grips, service grips, ect. All
of this affects the total weight.
OilThe Gun: Very Nice. Thanks for sharing.
1957Shep: Thanks. This one was made at just about the end of the P&R S&W era.
