HOT GAT or FUDD CRAP? Golden Stag or Boomers Bag?

Welcome everyone to the 237th edition of ‘Hot Gat or Fudd Crap?’, one of our many series here on TFB. If you’re new to the series, this is where we look at the most obscure firearms that are actually for sale and ask the question – is this Gat a sweet deal or only have Fudd appeal?  Each week the TFB staff weighs in with their thoughts, but readers get the final say in the poll at the bottom of each article.

In our last edition, our poll was sadly swallowed whole by the Google overlords….well actually we’re not sure what happened.  All we do know is that at this time the original auction remains up with the mariachi married gat still up for sale for $1,200 Buy It Now. All we can do now is hope that this gat-inspired south of the border will find its way to a new home in the not-so-distant future.    

In this week’s edition of HGFC, we look at a heavily customized Smith and Wesson Model 29 chambered in .44 Magnum. As is tradition, this golden Magnum chambered gat is currently up for sale on GunBroker for $6,500 Buy It Now.

Let’s see what the Staff had to say about this week’s offering:

“Grips are made from a boomer cartel femur” – Doug E

“Looks like an apothecary cap gun from my youth more than a gun a Cartel member’s son would own.” – Adam S

“The grips look like used toilet paper which is ironic because gold continues to look like sh*t on a gun. Why do people do this?” – Sam S

“When you want the bawdy barmaids at the local saloon to know your last fur trapping expedition went really well.” – Will P

The Smith and Wesson Model 29 was forever made famous by Clint Eastwood’s character in the 1971 classic Dirty Harry. Manufactured since 1955, the Smith and Wesson Model 29 is an icon of the wheelgun community.  With barrel lengths ranging from 3″ to 10 5/8 ” the lineup is eclectic and then some.

In all seriousness, who’s buying this?  It’s almost like someone asked the age-old question, “Do you feel lucky punk?” while watching Narcos for the first time in a nursing home in Montana. Don’t get me wrong, the Model 29 is all around old and new-school cool, but seriously, why? Look, I get the engraving is immaculate and yes those grips are very well cut, but I’ve never looked at a classic revolver and thought “Yeah let’s use racks add some gold, and then sprinkle in some engraving along the way……”. Maybe there’s a world where once you retire you get a piece like this, but I’m certainly looking at that world through a telescope hoping it doesn’t spread. So no, I’m not feeling lucky punk.

What do you think? Is this custom Smith & Wesson Model 29 worth it for a shade under $7k or are you better off saving that money for any other day?  As always, I leave it up to you, the readers, to decide.
