looks like great conditon, ugly ass fake mother o' pearl grips, lockup is pretty tight.


How is $730?




ETA: not even MOP, more like some strange bowling ball material, stupid looking at any rate.

Grips are meaningless......you probably would have swapped whatever came with it for something else anyway.

Barrel length is key to value. 4" is most desirable.

All Smiths are going up in value like a rocket......

$730 isn't a fantastic price, but it's not unreasonable.

A couple years from now and you'll be bragging about what a great deal it was!

understand on the grips, I would immediately buy a set of Hogue uglys for woods carry/heavy range trips and a nice pair of woodies. Just commenting on the overall fugliness of these things.

This one is a 629-2 that I've had for 4-5 years. I'm having trouble remembering the exact price, but I believe it was six hundred something then, and that was about the going rate for that time.

I have the original grips, but prefer the pachmayr gripper style grips. The grippers are not nearly as good looking grips, but much better for shooting.

ooc.

I feel the price should be below $700.

Especially with funky grips.

I payed $500 for my LNIB 629-1 with a 4 inch barrel.

I picked up this like new 5" 629 Classic for under $700 out the door a couple years ago.

The Classic model generally sells for slightly more though.

It's its hard to get a fix on pricing anymore. S & W revolvers here in central Texas have started to go off the charts. $730 may be the market value in your area. I recenetly paid in the $500-$600 range for a Model 36 and model 60. Even though thats seems high on the forum, I could not find them for less in my area in the past several months.

Thanks Jake :cool:

Since its my gun, I can say this...

I'm not big on the looks of stainless revolvers with rubber grips, but I'm glad you like it. ;)

Its a great shooter for sure.

This is a realistic reflection of the situation. It is not just the "panic" either. The online gun auctions, to a certain extent" have created a good deal of "value confusion". between,

A) Someone paying well above "market" for a particular gun because they can and it is worth it to them for personal reasons

B) A "non-gun" person seeing, say, a "pre-27 Registered .357 Magnum w/box and papers" going for $1,800, and saying to themselves "well, if that is what a .357 is going for, I am going to list my Ruger GP-100 at $1,000, after all I've still got the box and papers"

C) The "Ban" States and the sub market they have created inside their State for legal, but limited availability, of "Pre-Ban" guns.

D) People seeing "A & B (above) and taking their price clues from them and getting the idea that they all sell for the prices they see.




it has become something of a circus. In the real world there is a lot of "regional value". I have literally, seen folks jumping on guns, that are common in this area, at the LGS because "I saw one go for $$$$$ on the internet".

When people ask about a guns value, if I have a good idea about the particular gun, I always caveat my response with "Common price in my area" or something similar.

bac, i have to sort of agree, and sort of not. (again...this is opinion.)

the matte stainless, (factory finish) looks better with the rubber grips. the lack of "flash" seems more uniform.

polished, however, is like nickel. that goes with wood grips like peanut butter and jelly.

i had a 629 mountain gun that should have had the heavy underlug like the gem you own. i realize the lightweight thing is popular....it's a 44. they kick like mules.

i still don't get the n frame hatred in this world.they seem to take the abuse that any ruger would.

Yeah, the N frames can take some abuse for sure.

If I had to bet though, I'd still put my money on a Redhawk outlasting an N frame with the hottest 44mag loads.

Of course, the Redhawk is crude as hell in comparison.
