Smith & Wesson Model 29-2 .44 Mag./.44 Spec. 8 3/8" barrel Old Stock/"New" w/Mahogany Presentation Case -- Made in the 1972-1974 Range 1-Owner  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver
Description: As the first owner, I purchased this single-/double-action, 6-shot, 8 3/8" barrel, .44 Magnum/.44 Special, highly-polished, blued, all-steel N-frame Model 29-2 revolver new in the early 1970s. Serial number: N128582. From my research of S&W serial numbers/dates of manufacture, I believe this gun was produced between 1972 and 1974. It is in the exact same condition as when it left the factory and has been fired only in the factory testing process. Due to factory test firing/cylinder rotation, it's not uncommon for there to be a cylinder turn ring -- this gun has a very slight ring from factory test firing.

The gun has the "3 Ts": the color-casehardened wide target hammer's spur is checkered, the color-casehardened wide target trigger is grooved, and it has checkered walnut target stocks with inlaid S&W silver-toned medallions.

The cylinder release latch button is checkered. The top of the frame, barrel, and rear of grip frame/back strap are serrated. The square-notch, white-outlined rear sight is adjustable for windage/elevation; it has a blade, serrated ramp front sight base with red plastic insert. The metal finishing/high polishing and bluing are superb, as was characteristic of S&W revolvers of that era...I could find no flaws in the finish or on the grip panels. Has pinned barrel, recessed cylinder chambers, and knurled ejector rod tip.

The gun is in the original tongue and groove-jointed MAHOGANY presentation case with brass hinges/latch, protective cardboard shipping box with label on the end, *soft foam plastic upper case liner, hard molded foam plastic lower liner, cleaning rod, bore brush, oiling swab, screwdriver, and papers (instruction manual, Law Enforcement Equipment brochure, Warranty card, Authorized Service Center list). [*Smith apparently "cheaped out" re: the case's poor-quality blue interior liners' coating material, which, presumably, had been used to try to simulate the look of flocking by having applied a very thin blue coating material over the liners, which deteriorated over the many years during my storage, very possibly having been caused by contact of the liners with the gun metal's spray protectant that I used to preserve the metal finish over the years. On the top/forward/near-center of the case's lid, a piece of the liner coating had adhered to it, causing a discoloration spot. After I discovered the disintegrated blue liner coating in the early stage, I covered the gun with waxed paper to prevent the blue coating material from adhering to and/or damaging the bluing/metal. It should be a simple remedial measure to overlay the liners with some type of non-moisture retaining fabric.

The reason for the non-return policy is that the gun is honestly described to the best of my ability and is as shown in the photos.
