    Default S&w 629 ??

    I've been trying to figure out S&W numbering system.....
    I have a 629-2 with pinned barrel, recessed cylinder....
    The P&R "features" don't seem to match the 629-2. Mostly what I've read says -2 would not have P&R "features.

    So what have I got, serial #75****.

    4" barrel....

    Thanks

    In 1982 S&W started the phase out of pinned barrels and recessed cylinders.You can find guns with pinned barrel no recess cylinder and vice versa up to 1984 or so as stock parts were used up.
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you

    The part that seems odd to me is 629-2's are supposed to be manufactured starting in 1988.
    The pinned and recessed stopped in 1982.

    I agree with you on using the left over parts till gone, just seems like 1988 is a little late to be seeing P&R.

    Thanks.
