I was in Target Masters a couple weeks ago and I saw two 3" 629s. I am sure one was unfluted, and I think the other was fluted. I didn't look closely at them, so I couldn't tell you if the fluted one was also Mag-na-ported.

Long story short: I believe Target Masters does in fact have a Trail Boss in stock.

Has anybody seen a S&W 629 Trail Boss recently? I saw one at Antioch Armory about a 1.5 years ago and wish I had bought it now. Anyone know where I can get one?

BTW, thanks for all your answers to my last post guys. I talked to a dealer over the weekend who thinks he might have a 4" 29 coming in on consignment within the next month.

Assuming your 'Trail Boss' is
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI> S&W 629
<LI> 3" barrel + full lug
<LI> unfluted cylinder
<LI> black Hogue grips[/list]
I believe - at least as of 1+ month ago - there were 2 at Target Masters in Milpitas. One may or may not have had a lanyard stud at grip base.

Price tag said something around $720ish. There may have been a 3" 629 with a regular fluted cylinder there also.

Nice gun, but you'll want to use rounds with a tad faster burning powder otherwise you'll have a lot of muzzle flash.

I'd think this gun would be better shooting hotter 44Spl loads.

What, you saw an unfluted one and you didn't buy it, has your unfluted fever abated?

Actually I mean one of these:



3" Barrel with Mag-na-Port and fluted cylinder. There is also a version with no ports and an unfluted cylinder. I prefer the first.

I think I saw a 3" 629 at Marin Firearms in Novato recently... may have been the Trail Boss.

Hi Kev, this gun is still on the CA list. Have tried getting your local dealer to order you a new one?
