Lew Horton’s Exclusive Smith & Wesson Model 29

Lew Horton is distributing a beautiful limited edition S&W Model 29 in .44 Magnum. This Model 29 is finished in polished blue, with gold accents on the ejector rod, trigger, hammer and thumb latch.

The gun has a 4″ barrel, a non fluted cylinder, microadjustable rear sight and square butt checkered walnut grips. Lew Horton does not publish pricing, but it is apparently not much more than the standard Model 29. This edition is limited to 200 pieces.

  • Nice grips, ugly gold accents.

    Regardless, I’d never buy a Smith the the Lawyer-lock which likes to lock itself.

    • Now you may ask yourself: did his lawyer lock break? Did it? Do you feel lucky punk?

  • Gidge

    Nice. It’s elegant and not overdone.

    IMHO it’d look better with a little more barrel length but that’s just me.

    • Anonymoose

      A 6.5″ barrel would look pretty slick on it. 😉

  • Johnny

    Shame Lew Horton doesn’t have the clout to make S&W omit the safety lock.

    I have a Smith and Wesson Model 60 357 magnum & a Dan Wesson 44 Magnum with 8 inch barrel. I would be proud to put this gun in my collection I really like the gold accents it’s not overstated.

    All those lovely custom features and they still can’t get them to drop that stupid lock………

  • Mike Knox

    This is one of those times where gold accents don’t work..

    • justdavid

      As opposed to every other time gold accents don’t work.

    This is kind of a silly gun. It’s really just a plain old production 29, with MIM parts, and the Infernal Lock… giving it some hokey looking bling doesn’t change that. There really isn’t anything special about it.

    Flutes are very useful for indexing the chambers by feel. Without them, you have to look at the gun to tell where the chambers are.

    No bueno.

  • RecoveringAtheist

    Pass. As long as S&W keeps the lock I will only buy nice used ones. And there are plenty out there.

  • justdavid

    Wasn’t S&W bought, and is now owned, by the company that designed that lock? If that’s true, the lock isn’t going away unless the company changes hands.

    Guys. What is the problem with the lock? Mine has never locked itself. This gun comes out of the box as smooth as glass. Single action trigger is perfect. All I had my smith do was put a lighter spring kit in it to make double action a bit lighter. I love this thing. It’s hard to believe what this gun will do with a 4 inch barrel. You don’t need flute to index. The cylinder will lock when you rotate it.
