Chance Blevins: you should take that to a smith or have S&w do it put some ports on that barrel that will help the recoil alot
Bo Jay: How much is it worth?
Urban Cowboy: Beautiful. ...I have on laying on my chest a S&W 629-2 3 inch barrel.
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 crime film.
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!
MrPete8680: DH Jr.!
PRVeteran: Beautiful piece!
redshaftedflicker: beauty, great piece.
MegaToren: What the hell are talking about?
1957Shep: Almost all of the 629s have an underlug barrel, but it`s rare on the model 29.
captainpegs07: Thanks! I never thought about the frame square/round affecting the weight. Did they make a full lug 29/629?
captainpegs07: You chose to forgo good manners when you feel you can get away with it?
1957Shep: Have no idea what you are talking about.
MegaToren: What the freak did you link me to watch?!?!?
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.
Roger Hartzell: What a beautiful gun. I just bought my S&W 29-2 4 inch. It should arrive at my FFL tomorrow. Needless to say I'm real excited to shoot it. I'm a new shooter, only have 2 other guns both 9mm so shooting this should certainly put some hair on my chest. Had to get a 29-2 as I'm a huge Dirty Harry fan. Can't wait to see the shooting video!
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.
captainpegs07: What does it weigh? I want to use one for IDPA but they have a 42oz limit. I see different weights online.
