It probably is, but there are a few variations of the gun. If it's a blue (29) 4", I think that makes it a "Heritage" model they made in 2009-2009. Should be square butt and with replica target grips (or maybe they were magnas) and in a blue plastic case.

I would say $800 is a fair price. Older original ones can often be found for less than that, but not new in the box and with a lifetime warranty. Technically the lifetime warranty applies to the new owner on guns purchased after 1988 or so; however S&W does not appear to be rigorous about enforcing that "1st owner" issue.

There are also "Lew Horton" limited editions in 3" and with Magna grips that can be easily mistaken for a 4" gun if not measured.

I agree with Walkalong, I saw one today for $789 new but it was a 6inch.

Don't the new ones have mim parts? If so I would much rather have an older one with a 6 1/2" bbl.

Sounds overpriced for a used #29 to me.

I just checked Gunbroker>revolvers>29-10 and they've got an engraved one for $750 starting bid. No bids. Another one w/6 1/2 inch barrel starting bid for $879. No bids. Another one, 50th anniversary w/6.5 inch barrel starting at $800. No bids.

I'd say the seller is pretty much at peak price for this one.

I'd say that is a pretty stiff price on a used Model 29 in 95% condition. I'd pass.

No way would I pay 800.00 for a -10 in any S&W..Now if it was a -1 with that price tag I would run over people with an Abrams tank to get to it first..:D :neener:

29-2 YES.

29-10 noway EVER
29-10s have MIM parts and POS locks. Ugly grips. 3 strikes is an out

The current Model 29 is probably the strongest and most accurate ever made. I got mine for $800 about 3 years ago. It's a wonderful gun, but that does seem high for a used gun that isn't near mint.
