    Thumbs up 29-10

    Just got me a S&W M/29-10 a few weeks ago and it is a real shooter. It's the Dirty Harry replica. I had a ball with it down at the range. Sure do like that Colt hunter you got there. Make one heck of a deer or hog shooter.
    Regards Baldy.

    Yes sir Bob it's one from the Classic Series. It's a 61/2" barrel. I got the display case and all the goodies. Two sets of stocks too. Those are the redwood fancy ones. Here's the Dirty Harry stocks.

    Best Baldy..

    Baldy, it seems S&W left a whole next to the cylinder latch. I'd tell S&W to fix that factory defect.

    Seriously though, how does it compare to previous 29's?

    I'm envious of your collection Bob. Any of those pets up for adoption? I'll promise to provide a good, loving home.

    Yes sir Mr Revolver I agree with you about the the clinton hole but there's not much you can do if you want new. I would never have a gun with the clinton hole for self defense. I got two now that have it.

    At least it's removable. Is the action still smooth even with the MIM parts? Craftsmanship still generally there?

    Yes the trigger is smooth as silk and the over all quality of the fire arm is still as high as ever. I am very pleased with it and the M/21-4 .44spl I got at the end of last year. I talked to my gunsmith about the lock and he said no problem if I want it out. I doubt that I'll fool with it as both guns shoot fine and I like to leave well enough alone. If I have trouble with one it's gone in a heart beat.

    Best Baldy..

    Talking S&W Model 29-3

    I like my S&Ws with a 3" barrel and the model 29 is no exception.

    3 1/2" Barrels..

    All of the advertising of the day showed the Smith& Wesson .357 Magnum with Magna stocks ans 3 1/2" barrel. This was the FBI's gun of choice, and its looks made the gun the most desirable, even at the inflated price of $110.00, later $125.00. And, it sold guns.

    Smith learned what Sam Colt had learned many years ago, looks go a long way toward selling guns.

    The 3 1/2" barreled Smith just had a business-like look to it. And cataqlog illustrations always had an enlarged photo of the 357.
