View Full Version : Price check

How is $860 for a S&W M29 SS with 4" barrel? Not much info to go on I know. Looks like an older model as when the 29"s first came out, but no pinned barrel, recessed cylinder.
Looks to be in very good condition, not new looking by any means. Didn't give it a close up exam as the gunshop was busy and I had to be somewhere else.

Is that a reasonable price these days?

This is one of them guns that you see, then keep thinking about 'till you drive yerself nuts saying, "damn, wished I had taken a better look at that piece"! :redface:

Not many are selling on GB. A M29-6 sold for $505.00 and needed a barrel and trigger. The guy was selling it for parts.
A 6 1/2" blued sold 1/5/15 for $1,079.00 . If you really like the piece, maybe $800 isn't out of the question.

If that's how you feel about it just get it. I wouldn't personally pay more than $750 for it though.

I found 1 no-dash 629 4" that sold for about $1,000 on Gunbroker. 629-4's are in the $775-$800 range.

These days? If it is not just trashed, then YES if you want it.

Buy it if you have the means. Maybe take cash and haggle a bit.

Post pics so we can drool.

I'm still obsessing over an Ithaca Mag 10 shotgun I passed on 25 years ago.

Let us not obsess about those that we passed on in days of yore. :sad:

Memories of far too many still haunt my mind. :facepalm:

Got a better look at the 629, turned out to be a 629-6 in excellent condition, but with the key lock and new hammer/firing pin features.
On my first visit, the gun had been test fired by a potential buyer and put back in the showcase dirty.

I would have bought it had it been a dash 4 or below and $100 less. I like 'em as they used to make 'em. Probably the same reason I don't have a Ruger SA made after 1973. I am a stuck in the mud traditionalist. :]

My weakness is an ak47 in excellent condition. Decided to get a sam7 sidefolder and arsenal rpk7. Thought I'd have them last year, but vehicle repairs trumped the purchase. Pasture rent after 1 hay cutting sale should do it for funds. Patience is not one of my virtues.:whistling:

Your ship will come in on that pistol of pistols. Best of luck in that quest.~ss

Around here, that is a bit high for a lock sideplate gun.

Look like this?

Yup, except the one in the pic seems to be an earlier version before the safety lock mod.

The one in the link is new production and was "in-stock" last time I checked.
