    Let me know when you'll be there next week and I'll buy it from you personally. :)
    Jim, I checked the gun, and it has no dash numbers on it. It's also a older gun, as designated by the older stamping of numerals.
    I'm in the store Tues/Thurs nights.(5-9PM) All day Sat and Sun...(open to close) Drop in and say Hi........look for Bob.

    Pinned barrels can occasionally be found on revolvers made after 1982, these are known as "transitional" models.

    Some of the "6" series are quite a bit later.

    I'm going to try to come by late tonight.

    EDIT: Maybe not. One of my kids took sick.

    I bought my Bobbed hammer S&W Airweight model 37 for a wopping $200 about 5 months ago.It has some outter wear but she shoots great and locks up tight.I can't believe the great deals I have found in the last year or so.I like to carry it in my pocket holster for back up.
    Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!

    The Model 629-1 was introduced in 1982 and was not pinned & recessed.
