Default A new to me 629-1 grip question.

I went to meet my wife and daughter at a friends house where they had been horseback riding. When I got there the neighbor asked if I was the guy that liked guns and if I wanted to buy a few. I said ofcourse. I went over there set him up with a friend that has a gunshop to consign a few. He then asked if I wanted any of them. He had a nice 629-1, 6 inch that he had bought at a gun show for $150 and that he needed that out of it. I about choked and countered with $250 and he throws in the ammo. He was adamant about selling so I was adamant about buying. I got 200 rounds of 44 special and magnum as well. I checked the book and I could not figure out the birthdate and the grips do not have the speedloader cut out and I am curious if they are correct and I was hoping someone could give me a rough estimate DOB. I'll post a pic in a bit if need be. I also got a garand and 840 rounds on clips but that's for another forum.
The serial number is AYC59xx.

Date of birth is 1987 and the grips should have had the speed loader cut out.

Thank you sir. He had the correct grips sitting on a table but the weapon had the no cut out grips on the weapon. and I just didn't have the... let's say "nerve" to keep the mods happy to ask him to change them out after I saw the ammo that went with it. I will be going back and will try to get them. It's funny, he had no other n frame that the extractor grips would have been on (they both had the il), he did have a neat CHIP marked 19 he had bought from a buddy in California after he retired the the CHIP. I thought if it was an early 80's N they would be correct but I don't think the plain extractor cut out would have went all the way to 1987, thanks again for your quick reply. I am starting to think you are a smith and wesson computer program rather than a human. Someone asks a question and the Smith HAL answers it night or day. Thanks again sir for your quick responses to everyone on the forum. Your posts and knowledge are one of the reasons I keep coming back.

Indy

Well done! That is a beauty.

...right place at the right time.

I had a similar deal. A guy at work comes in one morning and wants to know if anybody wants to buy some guns. I ask what he has, he rattles off a few autos and then I hear a 44 revolver.

What kind of 44? I ask.

He thinks it is a S&W 629 Classic. Oh yeah, what do you want for it?

That is when I realized this was a guy who knew nothing about guns except that he bought a few of them years back looking for a new hobby, shot them a few times, put them away and forgot about them and now his wife wants all the guns to go.

He did not remember what he paid for it, but he's had it a long time... "I dunno, I guess $200.00".

Well, I did not want to seem too eager, so I told him to do some research about what the gun is worth and let me know what he'd sell it to me for. (I work with the guy and did not want to hear how I robbed him later when he finds out what it was worth).

A week later, and he did not research gun values and he still wants $200 for it. I met him at the local gun shop to do the sale and it is the first time I see the gun. 629 Classic, pre lock, pristine condition, about 1/2 a box of ammo ever shot through it, and he had a scope put on it (the scope alone was $200) (also the scope was the first thing to come off).

I gave him $300 for it outside the shop and we shook on it. He looked at me like, $300? what the?... I said it is a real nice gun and it's worth more than $200. (I didn't want him to be able to say I got him... and it is a good thing too 'cause the gunshop had a few 629's in the counter for sale at their "real" price).

By the way, it was real uncomfortable for a while when this guy sees the 629's in the counter for sale and what they were selling for. I told him how "guns shops can really jack the price up" but hey, I told him to do his homework on the cost and he didn't.

He was happy to get $300 his wife wouldn't know about, I was happy to get the 629 for $300, we still work together and so far he doesn't hate me.

Every once in a while a deal comes along!

Thanks 7shooter,

He seemed happy. This gentleman had a motorhome in the garage that costs more than my house and then some. I don't think he looked at money the same way most folks do. I have met people like that, I think he got happy seeing how happy I was. I am kidding you not. He knew what they were worth and he really saw me as a way to save haggling at a gun or pawn shop.

Indy

Indy, you got a great deal on that 629-1. I purchased one recently at a local gun show for $520 OTD and I thought I got a deal.
