Smith & Wesson Model 29-2 .44 Magnum. Completed circa 1977, serial number N489216 features a 6.5-inch pinned barrel and recessed cylinder. ENGRAVING: Wearing what appears to be special order factory “B” engraving (as script initials “JMS” appear below the cylinder on the right sideplate), a bordered vine pattern extends over some 65 percent of the frame, cylinder, guard and grip, then reappears on the barrel to approximately 50 percent. CONDITION: Lightly handled and possibly unfired since leaving the factory, the bore remains pristine. Metal finish is approximately 99 percent, with a ghost turn ring and a few small areas of minor polishing from handling or shipping. The cylinder locks drum tight and grips are flawless. CASE: The factory wood presentation case remains in at least 95 percent condition externally and approximately 80 percent internally. Screwdriver, mop, rod, instructions, warranty card and promotional materials are present. The price is firm and layaway is available. $2,500 plus shipping.
