    Local place has one for $550 or so- a good deal, or no? I like the gun and can find an excuse for it.

    Hey James,
    Is it a new one or old release ?
    I tend to see people wanting the older pre-lock version.
    $550 does not seem out of line for a brand new one though.
    I think that's about what they are runnin' around.

    $520 from Jerry's + shipping + FFL transfer charges = no savings, if not more.


    FYI: They are limited production guns as per S&W

    This one has the lock, which I'm not fond of, and is used, about 95% condition
    i'd say.

    If it were me I would look for the 1989 model (103652) or the 1993 model (103653) with the case hardened hammer and trigger as opposed to the MIM parts and the floating fireing pin. I believe both of the earlier models have stamped designations on the barrel instead of etched. Just a thought. :)

    I would definetely go with pre-lock! I own several and only one with lock but then they didn't make the 329 pd w/out. I believe with a little shopping you could find gently used in that price range and have better re-sale if, God forbid, it ever came to that!!

    I should have said the two earliest models as I am refering to the first two runs (1989 and 1993/4, 629-2 and 629-4) without the MIM hammer and trigger. These are product codes 103652 and 103653 respectively if you have the box. From 1998 (629-5) on the MIM hammer and trigger are used in this model and most others, lock or no lock.

    Such is life. I'm not wild about stainless but I have a model 60 stainless 3" 357 with adjustable sights that I love (dosen't come in blue :( ) and a 629 8" pinned and recessed that shoots fantastic. ;)

    I guess sooner or later I'll have a gun with a lock. :barf:

    I already have a 617 with a MIM hammer and trigger. :barf: :barf:

    Hell, I'm still trying to get use to black plastic forarm tips on rifles! :uhoh:

    Well, someone must have thought it was a good deal, because when I stopped off there today, it was gone. :(

    BUT, there was a nice 629 Classic (629-4) that just spoke to me. A lot. So, out the door I go, with it and a scope mount for $540.00

    This one has no lock too, and is only a little heavier than the MG, so I think it's a better deal for me. I don't like the idea of a lock on a woods gun. Most guns, really.
