A quick look at a recent acquisition, the venerable S&W Model 29 .44 Magnum. I’ve always wanted to own one and finally got a special deal with someone locally. It shoots well, although the sights were off for the magnum loads. Has to sight it in on the fly.
The 29-2 model features the Pinned barrel and Recessed Cylinders which is the hallmark of the older, higher quality Model 29s which are more sought after by collectors.
Here are some pics :
Barrel looks great.
Was pretty dirty inside, I can imagine that it hasn’t been clean for 10 years or so.
And the video of me shooting it with .44 special and .44 magnum loads:
