    Welcome to the FTF. Please hit the intro area and introduce yourself to the family please.
    On a fair trade, what are you looking for? Do you mean of comparable value?
    If so, check out some of the auction sites and look at reserve prices. These will give you an approximate value of each.
    Good Luck.

    Scroll up on this page and you will see "Home", click on it.
    As you slowly scroll down, you will see the section "Introductions"
    Post a new thread.

    On the fair trade and what you are looking for:
    I would consider the Colt Officer model, but it has a stout "felt recoil". A good 9mm can be a viable candidate.
    Good Luck

    Put some comments in your list. I trade a lot (no laughing here fellas) so I have a tad of experience in this area...

    What's the finish and barrel length of your 29-2?

    Does it have the target hammer, trigger and grips?

    How deep is the turn line on the cylinder?

    A photo would help.

    All the above will make a big difference in what the trade value should be.

    Looks like a 629 unless it's nickel.

    Looks like a stainless 629 to me. Does it have a lock?

    Nice looking Smith.

    The only one in the trade list I would immediately rule out would be the Taurus.

    The Springfield V10 caught my eye first. But that's because it's on my want list.

    Just know that a P239 in 357 means 357sig, not 357mag.

    It's more of a law-enforcement specific caliber, but not the most practical due to cost and availability. A good condition used p239 would be worth about $550-600, and then add $50 if it's got night sights.

    Just a question

    Ok if i got this right you stated the springfield V10 would be a fair trade depending on config. This one is a NRA edition a little gold on it. And I thought that would make it a keeper.;)

    You'd probably do just fine trading for a V10 in excellent condition, same with the Colt. I'm guessing the used market for your S&W is somewhere in the neighborhood of $650. But there are plenty of folks around here with far more qualified opinions than mine. Anyone care to chime in on the prospective value of this fine piece?

    Nothing wrong with having it appraised, and then either consigning or privately selling it...then buy whatever you like with the proceeds. This often the safest bet if you're a little unsure of the variables.

    I can't find an NRA model 629-2 in my S&W catalog and is that the factory grip?

    If you could give me the first three letters and the first couple of numbers of the serial number, I can give you a bit more information.
