According to the label, it shows to be a nickel Model 29. What am I missing here?
Is that not what it is?
Per the label, the special order number 6115 means the gun was packaged on the 115 day of 1986. That makes it a 29-3. The -2's ended in 1982 and the -3's ended in 1988.
The product code 101212 confirms a 6" nickel 29.
