Recently I bought a S&W model 629 which I think is a bit of a rarity.It has a 3 inch full lug barrel with an unfluted cylinder.I'm wondering if it was a Lew Horton special production gun which was introduced quite some time ago.By the way it's like new, in factory box with manual.I paid $350.00 Canadian for it-- any thoughts ?

    rfo1.. It sounds like you have the Classic Hunter product code 103650, look on your box at the end label. There were 3,200 of these made in sept 1989. It has the 3" Barrel and unfluted cylinder like you wrote.
    There were some other 3" .44 mags but with comped barrels. Smith made several Lew Horton runs, with different features than you mentioned.

    Hi Lefty,
    You are right-- it is product code 103650. One more question--when I got the 629 it came with Pachmyer grips which I thought was a bit odd.The previous owner claimed it came from the factory that way.I've since replaced them with Hogue square butt rubber grips--the ones with silver S&W medallions recessed on both panels-- I think they look a lot smarter and I like the grip and feel a lot more.
    What do you think about the price I paid ? (about $225.00 USD)

    You ought to be ashamed of yourself. You stole it.

    If you don't care where you are going, you can't get lost.

    rfo1.. aby said it.. you gotta deal. That same gun here in the US of A would be 350 to 400 dollars.
