Happy 46th Birthday to S230941, one of less than 25 documented yoke stamped 29-1s found to date. This particular revolver also has the highest serial number of any of the 29-1s documented so far. It originally shipped 9/26/1962 to Wisler Western Arms Co., San Francisco, CA in the clamshell case shown here. 29-1s are tough to find, but I'm convinced that they are still 'out there' and those of you who own one of these scarce models have a treasure indeed. Enjoy!
Chuck

Outstanding, Chuck. Thanks for the look.

I did notice this wasn't the one in the classifieds.

No, but the 27-2 was owned by the same old gentleman who bought this 29-1 in 1962. He ordered both just a few months apart he told me whern I bought the guns from him a few years ago. Actually, I may share the wealth so to speak in the near future by offering a few 29-1s that I have that are duplicates. Stay tuned.

Duplicate is exactly the reason I didn't jump on that 27. I do not have a 29-1, however, so please be kind enough to list em when I'm sitting at my keyboard and not away doing something dumb like working.

Seriously though, this one is just gorgeous.

That is a wonderful 29-1. I think that is the one I would consider the ultamate trophy gun for me.

Hey what a fantastic piece. Pics are outstanding, was that gun cleaned with maybe Flitz and then maybe waxed with Rennaisance to get that deep shine or is it the great "Light Box" effect? Boy it shows good. Once again, great piece. Thanks for sharing. Cowford

Rennaisance
Cowford, Rig gun grease for storage and Rennaisance when I take pictures. Rennaisance makes a red rouge paste metal prep that I prefer over Flitz.

Ken, I thought you kangaroo types weren't allowed to even own guns anymore. Has all that stuff stopped down under?

That is a great looking gun. I like your photography too-I'm going to build a light box also which might improve mine. Thanks for sharing,

That is one beautiful 29.

just curious, and I am sorry this is off subject but what model 29 is the new classic series supposed to recreate with the extra screw on the sideplate?

UPSguy, the 29-10 is most representative of the pre-29 5 screw variation, like this one.

D, I don't know if it would pass the drop test or not. I lived in Monterey for a few years way back when, and if I ever do go back...just for a visit mind you... maybe I can sneak this old gal back to you guys. CA needs it for sure
