LSB#: 121113RJ02

Make: Smith & Wesson

Model: Model 29-3 The .44 Magnum

Serial Number: ADB9664

Year of Manufacture: 1982-1984

Caliber: .44 Special and .44 Magnum

Action Type: Single and Double Action Swing-Out Cylinder Revolver

Markings: The left side of the barrel is marked “SMITH & WESSON” and the right side of the barrel is marked “44 MAGNUM”. The yoke cut is marked “ADB9664 / MOD. 29-3” and the yoke is marked “54918 / B11”. The left side of the grip frame is marked “B11”, “54918” and “F8”. The underside of the grip frame is marked “ABD9664”. The right side of the grip frame is marked with a “C” in a circle, “4758” and an “S” in a triangle. The right side plate has an S&W logo and there is the four line “Marcas Registradas” address on the right side of the frame.

Barrel Length: 6”

Sights / Optics: The front sight is fixed serrated ramp with an red insert. The rear sight is an S&W micrometer click adjustable model with a white outline around the square notch.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are black rubber Hogue Monogrips with finger grooves. The grips have a pebbled texture on the sides and there are visible scuff marks on the smooth portions of the grip. The grips rate in about Very Good overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is dark and the rifling is sharp. There is some fouling in two of the grooves, but there appears to be no erosion in the bore.

Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 95% of its metal finish. There are some abrasions midway on the outside of the barrel rib. There is thinning on the leading edges of the barrel and frame. There is some pinprick surface erosion on the sideplate and also opposite that same area on the left side of the frame. This is mostly hidden under the top of the current grips. There are some additional tiny spots on the trigger guard. There are drag lines on the cylinder. The hammer and trigger are case colored. The screw heads are sharp. The markings are clear. Overall, this handgun rates in about Very Good Plus condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. This is a Square Butt, N Frame revolver with a .500” wide checkered Target hammer and a .400” serrated Target trigger, white outline rear sight and red insert ramp front sight. We did not fire this handgun.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None.

Our Assessment: Unlike many of the S&W Model 29s we see in our shop, this one has seen some use. It still is an attractive revolver and is still definitely a shooter. It has the classic silhouette of a revolver, having the shrouded ejector rod, but not the full underlug. It is capable of shooting .44 Magnums and also more reasonable .44 Specials. It has adjustable target sights capable of being zeroed to the wide variety of ammunition available. And finally, as someone from the FBI once said “caliber is unimportant-as long as it starts with a “4”. This is definitely a caliber that starts with a “4”.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This handgun is not on the California “roster of handguns certified for sale” and can only be transferred/sold to a California resident as a private party transaction (PPT) at our shop in Simi Valley. This does not apply to out of state buyers.
