    One of the local dealers has a 29-1 for about $600. Looks very clean. I think it is stainless but it could be chrome or nickel. Anyone have some knowledge on the 29-1. Also found a stainless Super Blackhawk for under $400. Scuffed up but not shot much.

    If it's a 29 it's not stainless. 629s were stainless. A 29-1 in good condition with the box and papers could bring $600 but it had better be NICE. A 629....$4-500 with box and papers in a retail market and it had better just as NICE.

    The Ruger....I gave $300 for a nice blued gun in 44 so if it's stainless I could see adding $50 maybe $75.

    I can only go by CA prices and a nice condition 29-1 for $600. is a very good price here. 629's are going at least a hundred higher.

    According to the S&W bible a 29-1 in excellent condition going to bring $2,850 book says Nickel brings 2 to 3 times :eek: standard value... sounds like you need to run back there and grab it if it's still there :D

    The pre-lock N-frames are garnering a premium these days. A nice 29-1 should easily be worth $600, especially nickle

    I wish I could buy guns where all you people who find them so cheap do. Around here a "nice" 29-1, in nickel will bring at LEAST $600, and maybe as much as a grand or more. It will have to have a box and papers and be in REALLY good shape to hit a grand, but I see them all the time. Blue isn't much less.

    If it's scuffed up, then $600 is a little more than I'd probably be in for it. If it's already scuffed, it won't take long and the nickel will start flaking off. Blued and stainless gun wear gracefully, but worn nickel reminds me of the look of a crack or meth addict. Refinishing back to nickel will be costly.

    He said the stainless Super Blackhawk was scuffed up, not the Smith.

    Tuned out to be a false alarm. The gun was marked 29-1 but turned out to be a 629-1.:( Thought I had a good find for a little while.

    That is still a good price for a 629-1. What barrel length?

    Looks like 6 1/2". I did not measure it. Has Hogue grips and a very decent trigger. Not so clean so I dont know how well it was taken care of. Cylinder lock up looks good. Looks like a couple of minor scuffs. I did not see any erosion on the top strap. No box or wooden grips. He is asking $630 but I think I could get it for $600 OTD. My wife is a upset with the number of guns and ammo I have been buying and trading. We sometimes park our RV in bear country and thought this might be handier than the 12 gauge in the trailer if one got in.

    Is it ported in front of the front sight by any chance?

    I don't want to burst your bubble but I paid $475 OTD for this one. 8 3/8 629-1 with the factory box.

    Not a 29-1

    That's about right for a 629-1, but JTJ first post said a 29-1:eek: which is a totally different animal according to my S&W catalog, very valuable and if it was a nickel model 2 to 3 times the value

    Yeah by the 12th post he did correct the model, right after my post (4th) I sent a PM asking for the Gunshops contact info, because occasionally you can pick up on a real good deal :cool:
