    I only have one--a 1970's vintage Model 29, 8-3/8, Nickel, with presentation case, paperwork, all accessories and factory shipping sleeve. Had it since the late 70's (bought it used).

    S&W made some 5" 45s with tapered barrels for a state police contract. There was some over run but they are scarce. i have a couple 24-3s and m27/5" that I think are better balanced than 29-2s. I don't do Stainless guns either they go straight to trade pile.
    Here's a couple more 29-2s and I raise 1 Ruger SBH 3 screw and a clunk 629.image.jpegimage.jpeg

    Very nice Smiths! I don't have a 44 caliber version anymore and wish that I hadn't sold my Mod 29 back in 1990.

    People can argue all they want on accuracy of revolvers. Colt had some really good revolvers in early DA Target models and the Python and Diamondback. S&W has always been the leader in DA revolvers in general, that's what the company was built on. Before the present trend to cheapen production you herd very little complaints on S&W revolvers. Colt while a quality product weren't as durable as S&Ws. That's not my opinion any gunsmith will tell you S&W system is superior to Colts. I've owned just about all the the top end US made target revolvers in my life and have found you can't beat a S&W for accuracy and dependability, speaking of P&R era guns. They can be worn out and abused like anything else.

    Here's John Wayne shooting William Holden's 44 Magnum on the set of Horse Soldiers. No hearing protection in those days. Ouch!

    I like the Model 27 with the 5in tapered barrel---it was always a classic.
