Default New to Me, 629-3 Classic

Hello,
I picked up a 629-3 Classic tonight for $660. Iím going to replace the rubber grips with some Hogue round to square butt wood grips, Iím thinking cocobola. Could I get help with the year please? The serial number is: BKR6929.
Thank you.

I decided to order the Lamo Camo grips with a stripe cap from Hogue. From the pictures, they look nice but I’m a little nervous. If they don’t look good on the 629, I’ll try them on my stealth hunter...hopefully they’ll look nice on one of em.

Those Hogues with medallions were made only for a short time and many people would be happy to find a set. I recommend keeping them. They are probably original to the gun.

$660?! You crook ! Nice find. I would have snapped that up in a heart beat too. Shark bait is right, those grips are most likely original to the gun and very comfortable when shooting full house loads. Even with the full underlug.

I think the Classics with the full under lug and endurance package was around the 1990 time frame.
