What is it worth?

I have an older model 29 S&W 44 magnum with a 6" barrel, in very good condition, that I bought used around 1984 and was wondering what it might be worth. I have a speed loader, rug, leather holster, and a box each of magnum and special rounds.

Any help would be appreciated.

"special" rounds? What...exploding bullets? ...lol

It really depends on what model it is...29, 29-1, -2, -3. The older originals had great finishes, but the newer ones are actually much better guns.

Could be anywhere from around $400-800..maybe more. Some people want as much as $3000 for some rare models. All depends on the actual age and Ser#. The rug, holster and stuff don't really add much, unless they are all period and by a well known company.

Thanks for the info GG. The special rounds are 44 specials. I have a gun shop that says it might be worth $250-$275. I thought that was pretty low.

I just looked at it and it is a model 29-3 if that helps any.

Yeah....that seems real low to me..unless its in really bad condition....

Even a 29-3 with the extras should bring $500 or so. Anytime you sell to a shop..they are looking at what kind of profit they can make.

Heck..I'd give you $450 or so..if it was legal to ship it direct. Don't wanna pay the fees at each end though.
