    I just purchased a 6-year-old S&W 629-4. I like the way it shoots and feel the price was right. I also own a 686-3. Where can I learn about all the changes made with each rev? Smith's web site doesn't have this info. Please point me in the right direction.
    Thanks,
    Phil

    Purchase a book: " Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson (Second Edition) by Jim Supica & Richard Nahas. "

    It has all the information you want on your guns, and almost every S&W made since 1857. For example: The model 629-4 was made between 1993 through 1997. Changes over time included, changes to the butt (going from square to round); modified rear rear sight, extractor and thumb piece; Hogue grips (on some guns); providing a blue plastic shipping case on round butt models; and providing an external trigger lock.

    Since the book has provided clues to scarce (and sometimes more valuable) variants it has more then paid for itself.

    Greeting's All-

    I concur with Old Fuff, as the book mentioned is
    a definitive study of all Smith & Wesson firearms
    and accesories. I use my copy virtually everyday; and
    its a good investment!

    Best Wishes,
