329 Night Guard
The fact that I giggle when shooting this makes me feel like I'm a bad person.

...and yes that is my carry holster.

Wow! There is something very satisfying and wonderful about having a gun in both finishes! I only have that in my Mod. 36's, but pretty much every old revolver I want, I want both finishes. I also wouldn't mind a couple stainless versions as well. Very very nice! Sorry I'm 4 years late!

WOW! I did NOT know they made a 657 with full lug on it!! Does it have a frame mounted firing pin or hammer mounted? I'm gonna guess frame. Very nice gun! Also, why are the grips so light? Did they come that way or did you refinish them that way?

This one just arrived for me at the FFL this morning. I ordered some ammo for when she gets out of jail!

Wrong box, no papers, but she does have some Hogues on the side!

Here is my M29-3 LHS...



I've yet to shoot it with this grip combo but if it's anything comparative to my M36's with the same it will be great for shooting, awesome for concealment/carry...

Well at least you're on the right track! Heck I've only been hunting for S&Ws for 5 years. Just think, you're way ahead of the folks collecting Glocks with different color plastic frames.

That would be me, Ham... This thread should be sticky'd at the top considering the amount of recent interest with short barreled "N-Frames" and/or the "Combat Magnums..." In the last year prices have risen 35% alone on these bad ladies! I should know as I've bought 2 of them since July and the wife is still askin' "You aren't over there on that laptop buying more Smiths are you?"

Nice pistol HK Cavalier. I'm really digging those latter Goncalo Alves grips with their flatter profile you got there!

Here is a pic of my M629-5 with the standard "GA's" I've swapped from my Lew Horton pictured a few posts above to this one...
Lastly is a pic of the 3 of my short .44's taken this past summer.

Wow! Great N frame snubbies. Here's my 625-7. I added Eagle Secret Service rosewood grips, three dot sights, Wolff springs and a bobbed hammer. I saved all the original parts.

Great thread! Here's one I just got back from the gunsmith. Started life as a 28-2, it is now a 45 Colt with a stainless 3" barrel and cylinder. Sheep horn grips by Grashorn.

I don't know about latter...they're original to the gun, made in 1985. They're not as shiny as some I've seen from that time.

Mine are from 1985 too, and are shiny. But later in 85' I thought there were some LHS's that came with the flatter profiled grips but am not positive. Someone on here a month ago had a pair of the flat GA's on his and said they are awesome. A pic of the frame/stocks back to front will certainly tell what their profile is.

S&W switched over to the flat side combats around 1990. They were used on the Classics and Magna Classics. The wood was Morado or Pao Ferro (same thing I believe).They weren't a Lew Horton thing. Here's a set on my 629-3 5" Classic.

I think the grain of the wood on my 624 makes them look flat. They're not. I've held an early 1990s 610 with combats, and yes they felt different.

Decided to change the grips on my 625-7. A lot of people on this forum like Ahrend's, so I thought I would check them out. I saw a few N frames with maple grips here and online. At first I thought, blonde grips on a stainless gun? The more I looked the more they grew on me. So, I ordered a set of their maple Tactical grips from Gripseller and 3 days later I had them. My only gripe is the finish was a little rough. A few minutes with 0000 steel wool, a rub down with rottestone tripoli and a couple of coats of Johnson's paste wax and they were good to go. Can't wait to get to the range.

Looks great! I was fortunate enough to find one of those beauties, and will try her out next week!

Default Can't believe I missed this thread so long.

I wanna play, the 3" guns are my real weakness. A few amateur photos of my display from the SWCA symposium in 2017. There are a few L frames as well. Nothing says " I mean business like a big bore snub ".

Best regards, Bob.

I hate you! Just kidding... Tell us more about the M29-4... I've never seen a full-lugged M29 earlier than a -5 before so I'm interested in knowing all I can about your new "pistola"... Nice either way and feel free to post more pics as I like her a-lot!

You got that right! The Big-Bore 3" and to a slightly lesser extent, 4" barreled Smiths are all I'm interested in anymore as well. I won't even consider anything with a barrel over 4 inches anymore in Revo's or Semi-Automatics... save my CZ 97B .45acp whose barrel is 4.6 inches... Nice Revolvers Bratliff! Thanks again for helping me with my Mountain Back Packer questions...

Model 625-7 .45lc

From looking at this several year old thread I think I saw a few 29-4 Full Lugs posted and maybe even one 29-3. I've also seen a nickel 29-4 3"er on an auction recently but not willing to pay the price. Thanks for encouraging words!

Thumbs up 625-6 Lew Horton .45acp

Well, I got a chance to shoot 625-7 3" 45 Colt, and was pleasantly surprised how nice it shoots. Very nice action, and not as intimidating as I expected. I was shooting some mild 200gr Cowboy action, for my first time ever shooting 45LC.

After the range I went to the FFL just in time for my newest snub, the 625-6 .45acp to arrive! I'll probably be shooting the -6 more often, but who knows. The -6 came with box n papers. It was among the favorite range guns for the previous owner, and can use a good cleaning.

Glad to have both of these two N frame snubs, in my collection.

Cheers all!

I got this recently from a forum member. It's a 28-2 with a M29 cylinder and a 625 barrel then nickle plated. The cylinder is bored out for 45 Long Colt. I haven't shot it yet, unfortunately.

Work sucks.

Just kidding, I'm assuming she's a dedicated .45LC now! Beautiful caliber my friend!

Well, I decided to put my 625-7 back to stock, mostly. The reason for the original modifications is no longer valid.

The Meprolight night sights weren't glowing anymore, although they were still decent sights without that feature. I replaced the rear with the original white outline blade. For the front I used a bright orange insert. I seem to be able to pick it up faster than red or yellow. It's the old way of doing it with a piece of hard plastic cut and filed to fit instead of poured resin. Brownell's used to sell a kit with several different colors of plastic and a couple of files. I still have it. Some of you old timers may remember that.

The bobbed hammer was a replacement so I wouldn't mess up the original, which is now back in place.

Internally, I left the Wolff springs in since the trigger pull is very good single and double action.

I have the original wood combat grips, but I don't care for them, so the Ahrends stay on.

Photos of the gun with the modifications is posted above. Here's what it looks like now.
