You're not kidding, bac, this one does have nice furniture!
So tell me, did it make you day?
That's a great question, actually.
I'm not sure, but they look quite a bit different than my 4" 29-2 grips.
CB, I didn't mean my nicest revolver or even my nicest Smith & Wesson revolver. I just meant my nicest. N frame
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.
Nice!! It looks brand new
Very nice, congrats on your new N frame.
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.
It's little buddy is a pre-Centennial hammerless made in 1956-57. It too, has an amazing trigger. I carry it frequently.
I know Cabelas is high, but wow
Are you sure it was a 29-2 and not a pre-29 five screw revolver?
It was in a glass case and I didn't ask to inspect it but the display card stated 29-2. Like yours, it had the display box, brushes and booklet, etc. It wasn't there when I stopped in again last week. They had a couple other M29's but not as nice.
You didn't say what you paid for yours....
I paid $850
...And still smiling a month later.
I got a pretty good deal these days considering the condition, but there are several 29-2s on Gunbroker under $1000.
A few years ago you could easily find 29-2 models for $600 or less. In fact, I bought my 4" 29-2 for $599 about 5 years ago. No case, but in similar condition to this one.
$1800 is outrageous unless it was a pre 29 or factory engraved. I don't like engraving, but they do bring some money.
Wow, beautiful gun and wonderful find-- congrats.
after the last two picture post the arcus has now faded from memory.another beautiful snag. Thanks for sharing!
I actually posted this well before the Arcus. Somebody resurrected it.
