Default American Rifleman

I just got the new issue, May 2011, and the "I Have This Old Gun" is the S&W Model 29! Says it is a 1957 4 screw in 99% or NRA Perfect with the black case and accessories, and valued at $1850 to $2000. The serial number is S176XXX. It has a nice set of Cokes on it too. At first, I thought the expensive SAT was missing, but it is in the upper right of the picture.

So, how accurate is the article?

The article was written by Bruce Canfield. What more is there to say?
I'm wrong, it was Rick Hacker who wrote the article. My apologies to Mr. Canfield for this one.
