Default Nickle plated S&W M29 .44 Mag. Is this a good buy?

IMHO I'd say it's a high by $100. It would be worth more if it had a pinned barrel and recessed cylinders. Depends on how bad you want it. Does it come with the original box, paperwork or accessories?

Yeah that's about right.
Here's a contrast: Tabor's Shooter Supply in San Bruno had a 4" 29-2 P n' R, in nickel with the rather rare original diamond grips recently that went for $600.00 (missed it by a few hours, curse the luck). I would have paid that and never looked back. Nickel is sorta rare. 4" is a little more rare. And WITH the original diamond grips?

Yeah $600 was a great price. So $700 seems a little high.

The original box, paperwork and tools with it, might sway me a little more towards that price point.

If interested:

Turners in Redondo Beach as of yesterday afternoon had on consignment a nice 629-3 Classic guess it was a 6 - 6.5 Inch full lug BBL, grips were some sort of laminated finger groove variety. Not sure if it had the box. it was 600.00. Not sure if this is a good price.

I just bought a 29-2 P&R 6" nickel, no box or papers/tools, with goodyears for 599.00, finish is much better than the non P&R you show, add 75.00 for a pair of original factory grips which will take some looking and I am in it less than 700.00.

No offense to the other calgunners, but the advice you got so far is crap!

If it's worth $600, a hundred more won't kill ya. A nice clean nickle 29 on consignment will not come along too often. Unless you are low cash, and should pass based on that, you WILL be kicking yourself if you let it get away.

If you are passing, maybe you want to share with some of us Smith collectors where it is.

Well it's not crap really. It's a opinion. Just like yours.
To me it's a little high; to you apparently not.

See?

Opinion.

Frankly, the nickel guns are almost always cheaper than stainless and blued guns. The rare issue is because they weren't huge sellers and were lower demand. The nickel can peel and crack with use unlike the blue or SS guns. I will be selling a 29-3 6" soon enough and it is spotless. I'd be over joyed if I got $700.IMHO. RB It's an opinion issue based on availability.

If the mechanicals are excellent and it comes with the factory box, papers, tools, etc. it’s worth $600. I kinda like the factory nickel guns more than the blue ones but hey, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It looks like it has “Triple T’s “ as well. (Target hammer, trigger, and stocks).

Now, three years from now, I honestly believe that gun is going to sell for at least $750 or higher. Pre lock N-frames prices (even for the nickel ones) are going up & up, not only here in CA. but across the country.
