Heres the Christmas present my wife gave me this year. She bought this revolver not knowing at all what she was actually buying. When i opened the package I was stunned that she even took the gumption to even purchase something like this and after looking it over further and a little research i began to realize I may have something of a little value. It turns out this revolver is a Pre-29 44 mag ser. no S166xxx. The revolver was built best I can tell in the 3rd quarter of 1956. The gun has been fired and shows a little wear but still looks to be in very good shape in my opinion. It does not have the original Diamond grips on it and that hurts the value im sure. Im still researching the possible value of this gun, so if any of you could help it would be appreciated. I know im not supposed to ask how much gifts cost but i did anyway because I knew we couldnt afford the price this gun may bring. She then told me she paid 250.00 dollars and my mouth hit the floor! By my reaction she was concerned that she paid to much but i quickly told her that she quite possibly made the buy of the decade! Im not a great photographer but heres the pic! Enjoy!
