Where Can I Find a Replacement Cylinder Assembly for SW 929?

Depending on who answers the phone at S&W, they may or may not sell you one,(that's IF they have one in stock). The last time I called looking for a Model 41 barrel, the CS rep told me to call Brownells or Midway as S&W sells most of their parts through them.

 

Have your serial# and if possible, the SKU# at hand when you call.

 

S&W is but a shadow of it's former self.  A pity.

I had to replace my cylinder because of an over charged case that blew it up.  I sent it back to Smith & Wesson so that they could check out the gun and see if it was worth repair.  IT took about 3 months but I got it back.  I no longer load on a press that isn't self rotating.  

 

Good luck in your search.

Yes.  Thanks for asking.  The gun was new, only had 20 rounds though it,  I double charged it because I wasn't paying attention on my Dillon 550.  I replaced the press with a 650 to get the automatic shell plate rotation and haven't had any problems since.

 

I sold the 550 to a friend and he blew up his Ruger.  He now looks inside every case to make sure the powder is correct.  I also told him to use Trail Boss because it fills the case.  You can't overcharge because you will see powder pouring from the case.

I killed my mint less then a 100 rounds shot in it 29-5 classic over charge I didn't see that my scale was set on 23.5 instead of 13.5 I was not hurt but it took the windshield out of my truck and destroyed my prized revolver I have learned that no matter how many years you have been reloading CHECK and CHECK again

I found the top strap 45 yds. away I never did find the rear sight or the rest of the cylinder so don't make a $1600 mistake like I did

That press is cursed. 

 

I use a 750 and still look inside every case. It isn't hard to do. 

 

I recently had a 45/70 BFR blow up. But mine was a squib.

Never had, knock knock on wood!, a double charge with my 550 but I ALWAYS looked into the case when seating the bullet.

I'm using a Super 1050 mostly now and set up a mirror to check the powder on every case.  I'm a bit OCD though.

SW is pretty useless. They keep Emailing back saying the cylinder requires fitting by a gunsmith. All I asked them is if they sell the cylinder and how can I order one. 

Did they offer you a shipping label or anything?

No need for a label. I will never send anything to them and my cylinder is fine. I just wanted a replacement. 

 

They finally sent me the part number: 383900000 ... I only had to ask the same question 4 times.

Can you buy that online or does it have to be over the phone? They give you a price yet?

Sorry, I haven't been around. Has to be over the phone. I will give them a call and ask. Got busy with work and the days went by.
