Default Went to look at a Ruger...brought this home instead

If you saw my post about the Blackhawk in 30 Carbine, you know I was going to check one out last night. It was EXACTLY what my dad said it was. 7 1/2" Blackhawk "used" but after close inspection I believe 100% that it was unfired, for $350.

Then I saw this.....

Yes gents, a S&W 629-1, 8 3/8" 44 Magnum, $450. I've been wanting a 44 Mag for a LONG time and with my wife standing there giving me the green light I was all over it. The best part, I haven't touched it, it was this clean on the shelf! Wish I could get a picture of the bore, spotless! I don't know who had this but they didn't shoot it much.

On a side note, the used shelf was PACKED with like new handguns at great prices. I think we may start to see a lot of that the near future, IMO.

That Spitty is an absolutely amazing score for that price. I agree that some deals are going to start showing up...

Nice! and what a price, was it at Gander mountain? in my experience they are always at least 100 more than normal prices.

Sweet find, I was kinda expecting to see a glockj/k

Thank you both. It was at Gander Mountain actually and you're right, usually their prices are way high but they had a BUNCH of good deals on used guns. I was told that this gun was on the shelf for about 4 hours and I couldn't let it go. They did throw in that little cleaning mat, a silicone gun sock, a lock, a free cleaning/inspection by their gun smith and a 1 year warrenty. I would have bought it without that stuff but hey, it was "free". As soon as I can round up some ammo I'm heading to the range!

Anyone got some 44 Special?

Can anyone help me date it? I know it was build from 80-88 but I'd like to narrow it down some more.

That is a screaming good deal! Around here, you can't touch that 629 under $750 plus. Ya' dun good!


BTW, Sportsman's Guide has .Corbon .44 Special for around $30. for a box of 20.

Thanks for the info but who can afford to actually shoot the thing at that price? I see some more dies in my future....the curse of reloading. I need brass!!
