Default 29-2 and 27-2 pawn shop find

well,today was my day off figured i'd hit a pawn shop i like.well long story short, he just put out a 29-2 and 27-2,both 8 3/8 barrels,with presentation cases and tools,29 had the paperwork,and vapor paper,i'd say the 27 is 98-99 %,the 29 is minty as well but with a small mark here and there.the 29 had some crummy pachs.on it ,i had some targets stocks,so now they are both dressed and beautiful.

could someone tell me what they are going for these days,i here the -2's are desireable,but not so much the long tube.
i know u want pics,i can send some to someone from my iphone if they want to post,i'm still waiting for my teacher to post pics via ,camara,to computer.

any info on these guys would be welcomed,i think they are both 3 screws w/ n ser. num.

Prices on 29-2's are nuts! Prices seem to very in different parts of the country. IMHO, a 98% 29-2 with an N prefixed serial number in a presentation case with tools and papers is a $750 to $900 gun. I see them as high as $1600 with a lot of them more than a grand! The 4 inch barrels seem to be more desirable and may sell quicker. I personally like the long barrels.

The 27-2 is likely a $100 or so less.

Wow. Travis Bickle paid $500 for his M-29 thirty five years ago and all he got extra was a shoulder holster made in Mexico. You done great.

i gotta admit when i saw the 439.00 and 459.00,my legs got week and i about went to one knee,ha, i figured the presentation boxes were worth a couple hundred these days.i figuered they were a good price but not like u guys are saying.the bad part is i'm a 22 guy,j-frame guy,i'm not much for the big guns,even tho they are quite impressive

OK people remain calm! The local sherrif is on his way to collect the remaining $800.00 balance due the seller.

And I thought I had gotten a deal. Details will not follow.

Congratulations, for the rest of your life this bargain will not be repeated and will haunt you forever.

Sounds like a buy one get one free?

You did very well. At those prices it probably would have been worth the airfare and the TSA grope and then have them shipped back to Missouri via FFL.

everyone I've interacted with on this forum has been pretty awesome, so I'm just doin my part. Easy to figure out though, use photobucket or a similar site to upload your photos to the web, I use flickr, open the photo up to the size you want, right-click it and 'copy image url' then in your forum post type "[img] immediately followed by the URL here and then [/img]" (without the quotes) that's all there is to it. here's the last one, the price tag shot

Okay, good deal.

But, if you hadn't been drooling all over yourself & falling on your knees, do you think you could have done a little better than -$9 + tax from his asking price?

Like that bald guy on the Ray Romano show sez. "Holy Carp!!!" or sumthin' like that.

You made about the best deal I have seen in a long time there.

Sometimes the stars simply align. Unfortunately for me it's usually before or after I walk into the gun shop

Congrats on a PAIR of nice finds!
