Hello Guest
You need to tell us a bit more about your .44. Since it is nickel plated, it is almost certainly a Model 29. But there were many variants (indicated by dash numbers) of this popular revolver and they all tend to carry different values. Some variants are quite rare in nickel, others not so much.
Also, please supply the barrel length and serial number. In addition, you need to tell us something about the condition of the firearm - pictures are best.
With all that information, I should be able to help you arrive at an approximate value.
Regards,
JP

Hello again
Your Model 29-2 was probably serialized in late 1981, just before the dash 3 was released. The dash 2 was the last of the .44 Magnums with a pinned barrel and recessed cylinder, which your picture confirms your gun has.
The plating on this gun appears to be in quite good condition.
I have a few more questions before I can estimate a value for your revolver.
Do you have the original stocks that came with this gun? They should be walnut or Goncalo Alves Target stocks with a speedloader cutout on the left panel. The Pachmayr grips that are on the gun now are an aftermarket addition.
Do you have the original blue box and accessories that came with the gun? This will include various paper items, a cleaning kit and Sight Adjustment Tool (small screwdriver).
Finally - and of utmost importance - what is the actual barrel length on this revolver? It appears to be a 6" barrel. But the value fluctuates wildly between 5", 6" and 6 1/2". Be sure to measure it carefully from the front of the cylinder to the muzzle.
Regards,
JP

Sorry. I now see that you had stated the barrel was 6".
So, please just address the other two questions.

Okay. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
I would estimate the value of your revolver, as is, at around $800, give or take $50.
Thanks for consulting the Gun Values Board.

This is a very old thread. Are you HappyDog from Post #8 above? Or are you a new-comer to this thread? If the latter, then you should simply create a new thread to ask about your gun. Tacking a new question onto an old thread will only lead to confusion and a lot of lost time for both you and us.
Please let me know - I can split this off and start a new thread for you.
