1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Is this a Model 17 or a Model 617 that has been refinished? Model 17's do not have the full underlug barrel (at least the ones I can find).

    "MIM"???

    Look inside crane to find model # 17-?. looks like a 17-9 that was the last model 17 before it was discontinued. Let me know what you find out.
    I might be interested in your S&W

    The gun is a 17-8. The blued cylinder was replaced with a stainless
    cylinder and tuned by the S&W Performance center. The gun is sold
    pending receipt of funds. Thanks for the kind words Ross! MIM
    is "metal injection molded" parts.

    You're welcome, just telling the truth. MIM parts, AKA "squirted" parts, not well thought of by quality oriented folks.

    I haven't seen a "bi-color_ or "two-tone" S&W for a long time.

    I have a Model 29 made in 1968 that has a nickel frame and blued barrel and cylinder, and a factory letter stating it was built that way as a custom order.

    During the 60's and 70's, S&W made up a number of revolvers mixing
    blue and nickel parts. Usually it was done before inventory. If they
    had a large number of frames but were short on cylinders or barrels
    of the same finish, they would sub another finish. These guns were
    sold to the distributors for a 10% up-charge.

    Collectors refer to factory original mixed finish guns a "Pintos".
