  1. After a long wait I finally got my hands on a 929 to use in place of my custom 686 plus for ICORE Open class. I decided to give you all a detailed report. It is a lengthy write up but a review should be to include all you should know. Soooo... lets begin: I was excited about finally upgrading to an 8 shot from a 7. Also happy thinking alot of the usual tuning work to make a revolver competition ready would already be done as advertised. Specifically a smooth fitted Performance center action, chamfered charge holes, and a sharp broach cut barrel. Before I describe what I found let me say it is
  2. Hi All, As I didn't see this in posts when I was searching, in case someone's ever looking for a specific model to order online that fits the 929 moon clips, this one fits 32 very nicely. Plano Shallow Prolatch Stowaway 5-34 Cheers, Steve
  3. Hi All, I'm new to the forum and could use some advice regarding primers for a 929 with a lightened trigger. In Canada we haven't had access to Federal small pistol primers for about a year. All suppliers have back ordered them with no ETA. Has anyone tried any other primers that would do the job? Thanks in advance.
  4. Does anyone have the part number for a Factory 929 barrel? I recently installed a take off a friend purchased on his 627 and would like to buy one, I have found that having a part number speeds up the process when ordering from the Factory.
  5. My new 929 arrived Friday. The label on the box states it was manufactured on 2/15/16. From what I'm seeing, S&W has managed to get their act together. First impressions: 1. The barrel is NOT canted. It appears to be on straight, not clocked and bullet impact is dead-on with the sights set right in the middle. 2. The trigger pull was smooth as glass right out of the box. Yes, it's too heavy, but VERY smooth. 3. The forcing cone looks to be cut straight. I've not run feeler gauges into it yet, but it looks fine. I didn't get any kind of weird blow-back when firing.
  6. I had read a few threads claiming that the 929 was produced with the same tools as 38/357 revolvers, so I decided to slug my 929. \ \ All throats were consistent at .357 and the barrel was .356. Guess I better switch from the 9mm 147gr projectiles I've been using for reloads.
  7. I was looking to order a spare hand for a 929 and didn't see 8 shot specific parts for sale at Brownells or Midway. Do they sell them? Or do you need to file down the 6 shot part? The only 8 shot part appears to be for a model 317. I don't mind fitting a 6 shot part, but figured it would be easier if they already sold an 8 shot version.
  8. I've just started reloading for my S&W 929 revolver using W231, Federal primers, 125 grain RN bullets from BBI, and range brass. Rounds with 3.8 grains of powder chrono'ed ~980 fps, rounds with 4.0 grains of powder chrono'ed ~1020 fps. This recipe has been relatively succesful for my M&P. However, 15-20% of the primers are backing out when used in the 929. Does anybody have any thoughts about why that is happening?
