The first gun sent to the FFL appeared to be used; there were wear marks in the cylinders, heavy powder residue, and quite a few scratches on the gun. The FFL even commented to me on the condition of the gun as I was inspecting it, so this wasn't just me being a picky customer. I refused the transfer and Buds shipped a new gun, but only after giving me bad info that the new would be shipped once the refused gun was in transit. The second gun I received was much better, and appeared to have only been test fired (and not cleaned, but I read online that is typical for S&W?). A quick clean and polish and it shines like new - no issues to report. The gun gets 5 stars, as it performs as expected and looks great. In the end I did not get my gun on the date expected, as the refused gun had to be received by them before they shipped the new (not what I was told when I spoke with customer service the day I refused the transfer). My suggestion is to scrutinize your gun and ensure you are happy with it, and if not try and work with Bud's to expedite the return/exchange process. Bud's return process needs improvement, as I waited a week from sending the old gun back to getting the new. When I realized I would not have the gun before Thanksgiving holiday, I asked them to expedite (overnight) ship to the FFL and they refused. In my opinion they shipped the first gun in poor/used condition so they could have done more to make the customer happy. Time from order to receiving an acceptable transfer was 19 days.

Great gun for S&w . Exceptional problems so far.shoots as well are my 29's from the 70's . Still don't like the lock but that's just me.

This 629 with a 5 inch barrel is beautifully balanced and handles recoil like a dream. The double action is long but smooth. The single action in short and crisp. I've fired several boxes of full load 44 magnum without a problem. This handgun groups well and the custom grips are an improvement over original wood grips

As usual, Bud's is prompt, courteous, and a pleasure to deal with. The entire process is simple and my pistol arrived in good shape. What can I say about a Smith and Wesson 629 Classic that has not already been said?! I have always wanted a 44 mag so I finally pulled the proverbial trigger and got one. What a blast to shoot!! My son and I tore up targets at 30 feet right out of the box with Hornady 200gr 44 special. Then we dropped in some Hornady 200gr 44 mag. What a huge difference and you better hang on, but it is manageable and SO MUCH FUN to shoot!! I am a retired Marine CWO and spent a summer on the USMC pistol team so I have spent some time shooting. Cleaning weapons was not my favorite activity back then and is still not on my good times list today. I recently switched to Lucas oil products though and they work well. Lucas Oil CLP, a good nylon brush, a rod, some patches, and this weapon was a breeze to clean too. Thanks!!

I absolutely love this sw .44 mag 5" 629. It's my new favorite pistol. I went back and forth between the 5" and the 6.5" barrel. Truly glad I went with the 5". It's easy to shoot. Relatively tame compared to all the hype that's out there. And as always, buds gun shop does an excellent job. Fast shipping and great service!!!

Over the years I have purchased many S&W large caliber revolvers, this is but the latest. S&W makes the finest revolvers in the world. My only complaint is the trigger action from the factory is a bit rough; a trigger job from a reputable gunsmith solves this problem. In my part of the woods, a trigger job cast $45.00; money well spent.
