Default Picked up a set of .44 Magnums

Someone recently posted several mint S&W's on a local message board that I frequent. Two 629-1's (one 6", one 4") and two 29-3's (8 3/8" & 4") caught my attention. They were listed at $750 each. I offered $2k for these three and he accepted the offer.

Just had to post a picture to boast a little. The other 629 is already sold, but there are now four 25-5's, in various barrel lengths, listed at $750 each. If anyone is interested, send me a PM and I can give you a contact #.

Happy hunting.

What barrel lengths are the 25-5s. Are they .45 Colt?

SCORE! Though I am not a fan of the .44 Magnum, I know others are. Those are three handsome specimens! I am sure you will enjoy them. Nice going!

NICE - I think that you got a "buy 2 get - one free" deal!

The bottom stainless specimen is absolutely beautiful. And I agree that you bought 2 and got the third for free! Nice score. I don't have a .44 Mag. I'm thinking I need to change that!

Nice collection of S&W 44's.

My buddy had a colt Python and a colt 1911 gov both in nickel. That got me into the s&w in nickel.
