Hi, A friend is offering to sell me his mod 29-4, it is blued and it has a FULL LUG 8 3/8 barrel and UNFLUTED cylinder and is in like new condition. my question is: is there any collector value or is it ok to shoot it. I have looked and can not find another one just like it on the net. I can buy it for $450. Thanks for your time, Brian

Any time you can get a Model 29 in good condition for that low a price, you better grab it FAST.

S&W has made a number of limited production revolvers with various features like full lugs and non-fluted cylinders.

Generally speaking, most of these bring no higher prices than more standard guns.
If it's already been shot, shooting it some more will not affect the value.

Thank you for the information. I will buy it tomorrow from him. I thought that was a great price but its always good to hear it from someone else.
