Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Smith & Wesson -- Smith Wesson 629 Classic DX 44 Mag Redfield 2.5-7x

Stainless Smith And Wesson 629 Classic DX 44 Mag with Redfield 2.5x - 7x EER Scope, Hogue Grip - The ultimate Hunter's Pistol competition or hunting revolver, everything in the auction is worth well over $1,000; this is the 8 3/8" model 629-3 .44 Magnum Classic DX. The DX is Smith & Wesson's most accurate .44 revolver and must shoot a group no larger then 1 1/2" at 50 yrds before it is allowed to leave the factory. The factory sights on this gun were replaced with a Bo Mar (the rear not pictured but is included in the sale along with the scope); right now the gun is fitted with a Redfield EER 2.5x - 7x Scope. The timing is right on and it locks up nice and tight. The gun is in excellent condition; I used it for silhouette competition and it was great, but I just don't have the time to get out so I am selling it. My friend the Smith said to be sure to note to you that this gun has no MIM parts, all steel. The Redfield scope is set on a Weaver mount which was factory drilled and tapped; the scope was bought new by me and cost almost $400.

Here is some of an article I found on the Web comparing the Freedom Arms $1,400 "Field Grade" 44 Mag and the 629 DX

"We pitted a $2,000 Freedom Arms .44 Magnum against the $800 Smith & Wesson Model 629 Classic DX and came up with a money-saving finding."

No experienced shooter would argue that Freedom Arms’ products are some of the finest revolvers on the market today—which accounts for their presence in the hands of many top field shooters. But Freedom’s revolvers are extremely expensive, generally running from $1,300 to $2,000 a copy, and at this writing, there is a seven-month wait to take possession of one. Because of the cost and scarcity of Freedom products, many shooters are wondering if the guns are worth the wait, which means they would consider buying the readily available and more affordable Smith & Wesson 629 Classic DX. A quick look at prices for the two guns shows a big difference. A favorite Freedom gun among serious shooters is the Field Grade .44 revolver. This gun has a trigger overtravel screw, Pachmayr grips, a field-grade finish and a 10-inch barrel. The price on guns of this sort run $1,304.35. In contrast, the retail price of the 629 Classic DX is $838, plus the preferred $93 Bo-Mar sights. The price difference between it and a Field Grade Freedom Arms gun is $466, not an insubstantial amount, but not too much more to spend for a serious hunter. However, because the S&W is sold through dealers, the guns can be found for prices that are less than suggested retail. You can reasonably expect to save at least 20 percent to 25 percent off list. This makes the price difference between the guns somewhere near $600, which is getting on toward serious money.

However, if you save money but shoot an inferior product, then the additional pocket change isn’t worth it. So Field Tests decided to see how well the S&W 629 matched up with a pricey Freedom Arms revolver. Here’s what we found.

"The Findings"

"The most striking conclusion our testers made was that they could live with either gun, which gives the DX a sizable edge for any shooter who must watch his money. In range shooting, our testers noted no apparent difference in perceived accuracy or shootability...Freedom Arms is a consistently more accurate revolver than the Smith & Wesson. However, the difference is very small."

Questions for Users
(Public)   
    Q:  I have more than 25 positive feedbacks on ***GunAuction******GunAuction*** at 100% positive feedback....why can't I bid on yours.....my ***GunAuction*** name is ddouros.....I am legit 07/22/2009
        A:  Well, the way Auction Arms works is this: you can't PROHIBIT someone with negative feedback from bidding on your auction UNLESS YOU ALSO REQUIRE that all bidders have at least one positive feedback. I don't like the way it works either, but that's the way it works; and I can't allow someone with negative feedback to bid. 07/22/2009

    Q:  Does the factory front sights(6)come with this DX Classic? 07/24/2009
        A:  No, since the BoMar is so significantly better than the stock sights, I did not keep them. 07/25/2009
 
(Public)   
    Q:  I would have chosen your buy now feature but because of my no feedback...I cant bid....crazy system...even though I have over 800 positive feedbacks in ebay.... 07/26/2009
        A:  I removed that restriction Saturday night; go ahead... 07/26/2009
 
(Public)   
    Q:  Please tell me more about the condition of the revolver for sale... i know the history of the DX already 07/26/2009
        A:  I am a shooter, and have been for 40+ years but I am not a Smith or a "wheel gun expert"; so you will have to be specific about what it is you need to know... 07/26/2009
 
(Public)   
    Q:  is there any blimishes or scratches on the gun... you already said it locked up tight.. what would you say that keeps it from being in excellent condition.. by the way.. i'm in NC too! 07/26/2009
        A:  I would not call it excellent because as you can see in the pictures there is discoloration from firing on the "rises" of the cylinder; the last time I had it at my Smith's he said he could remove those if I said the word but I wanted to get to the range that day and did not have him do it; overall I would personally call it in "close to excellent shape" BUT, you know how some experts in "assessing stuff" are; I have been selling on Ebay since 1996 and have learned that in the Online Auction world, you better be very careful how you say something is in "Mint" or "Excellent" shape; I have sold high-end audio components that have been in essentially new condition and had buyers complain about something; so you could call me "gun shy"... 07/26/2009

    Q:  tell me a little about the scope... how old is it.. does it work like new... and how much did it cost new. 07/26/2009
        A:  The scope works exactly like it did when it was new; as I said in the listing I bought it new at retail and paid near $400 for it; as I remember it this was like 6-8 years ago; at the time the local shootists were saying these Redfields were far more durable than Nikons or anything else on the market EXCEPT a Leupold (sp?), and they were almost that good. I have had several other pistol scopes over the years and none of them compared with this one. 07/26/2009
