Smile Pre 29 4" 4 screw

I must admit I have a weakness for early 4" model 29's as well as Early Combat magnums. I was offered this a couple of months ago and was proud to add it to my collection. Front to back in the last photo. Pre 29 4" 5 screw, middle Pre 29 4" 4 screw and last but not least 29 no dash 4" 4 screw. Now maybe just maybe I will find a 29-1 4" out there someday. I have not had alot of luck finding -1 guns though. ;-)


Thanks again Jim!!!

That is one gorgeous 5 screw .44 magnum. And the fact it's a 4" blued one makes it a grail gun for me as well.

Great looking 44 Magnums. There has only been one 4-inch 29-1 reported with a bright blue finish, but there may be more out there.

I had no idea. I figured they were scarce but only one reported 29-1 4 "?
I will keep my eyes open but I won't hold my breath. Thank you for the information.

There is something about a 4" N frame. I bought a 24, 25, 27, 29, 57, 58, as well as a heavy duty and a 520. My 24 is one of the 80s gun and with a set of real stag grips is the gun I pack around most of the time. I even bought one of the new, factory engraved 29s. Just can't resist them. Shotgunner

See my post of S227230,as DOC44 mentioned, the one known blue 3 screw 29-1 wearing a 4 inch barrel. Didn't want to post pics of it here and hijack your thread of great looking 4 inch 44 Magnums.

No sir . Just the one black/ blue case for the five screw. It did not come with the case. I bought it from a fellow forum member.
