I have 2 model 29's no dash. Both 4 screw. One of them is a 4". They don't look like yours though. I did pick up a pre 72 Super Blackhawk recently that is unaltered and looks to only have had a few rounds put through it.

Another great addition. I would guess that is probably the least common barrel length.

This will be my last 44mag. I also picked up that Ruger Super Blackhawk last week, bringing my total to 8 revolvers in this chambering.

First of all, WOW! She's a beaut!

Yeah I dig them too. My 8 3/8" Model 29 keeps company with a like size and blued .45 Colt and a .41 Magnum. I wouldn't mind finding a 27 to match.

We're even up on .44 magnums at 8.

Finally, Brian, when you say this is the last of anything I start looking for the salt shaker.

Thanks SC

I've got the 8" 27, but not the 41 mag.

Man that is gorgeous. I'm really starting to appreciate the older S&W guns. you've got me currently looking for a good shape Model 39. I also really need to pick up a blued smith revolver in great shape. I love the figure on those grips as well.

Nice revolver Brian, to me that's the epitome of a 44 Mag. Makes me miss my Dan Wesson that I spent a few seasons hunting with.

I will! Thank you. I really do have the twin of that Model 29; and I WISH I could take pictures as well as you do. The Model 29 with an 8 3/8 inch (half-underlug) barrel is the finest handling, most naturally balanced handgun I've ever owned (and I've owned a few). That's, 'Why' I used to have three of them; as well as, 'Why' I'll always have the third Model 29, and the least used of all, in the safe. I know my wife will never fire it; but I can't bring myself to capitalize several firearms; and this is one of them.

It hasn't been mentioned, so far; but aren't those Smith's custom dark cherry wood grips on your new Model 29? Doesn't look like the factory standard goncalo alves grips to me. Deadite's photo appears to show the standard grips; but your photos look like factory custom cherry wood.

Really?

And all this time I've thought the B.S. quotient on most internet gun forums is higher than Hurricane Sandy's wind speed; but if you say so ....... !

I think he was referring to the famous gray carpet background. You probably know this though.

That's a great question, actually.

I'm not sure, but they look quite a bit different than my 4" 29-2 grips.

They do look different. The color is similar but they seem much more highly figured. Here are my Goncalo Alves target stocks for further comparison. They really seem to shift in the light. Sometimes the don't appear to have much figure, and at other angles it really pops out.

I think this time I really mean it, my friend.

I actually have 9 if I count my 445 SuperMag.

General Firearms Forum

That is a beauty. I saw one almost as pristine in a Cabela's gun library room a while back. I think they were asking ~$1800 for it. Nice to see some collectors saving (nearly) unfired examples.

I have a 29-2 with a 4" barrel made around 67-68. Not pristine but still very nice. Carry it elk hunting every year. I've got 4 holsters and ten stocks for it. Picked up a new die set last winter and keep about 600 rounds of ammo handy. Like Deadite said, it has the finest trigger of any revolver I've ever used. It's a joy to shoot.

The stock it's wearing here fits my stubby hands better than the factory target stocks.

General Firearms Forum

It's little buddy is a pre-Centennial hammerless made in 1956-57. It too, has an amazing trigger. I carry it frequently.
