Default Nickle or Stainless Steel?

I have just picked up this Model 29-3. s/n AJH5687

Nickle or Stainless Steel?-image-jpg

Probably made in 1992 or 1993.

I would like to find out if this is in Nickle or Stainless Steel. Just curious.

thanx
mike

Hello,
It's nickel plated. The serial# dates it to about 1985. Looks quite nice too!

To be stainless the model number would be 629. JFYI.

Nice looking gun

Nice Model 29. The 4 inch makes for a good looking N frame

Might want to "flesh" that info out a bit for him weatherby, seeing as how the Mdl. "29" number didn't tell him nickel, as opposed to SS.

I know you to be a knowledgeable grips and stocks man, likely even got a correct set ?

Hi Mike what I said about the grips/stocks.
They most definitely appear to be for a smaller framed gun ie K frame
An N frame set would fit much better and be less painful to shoot I might add. One fun thing you get to do though is go grip hunting and find a cool set for a fine nickel gun.
