    Seller has 56 feedback and all of it is 100% positive. I would buy it if I wanted it

    His description is excellent IF he had left the term mint out. I collected Smiths for many years and had a particular weakness for the 3 1/2" .357 Magnum in any of it's incarnations (registered or unregistered 357 Magnum, pre Model 27, Model 27) This gun is as nice as most that I have ever seen or handled. Should be interesting to see what it goes for.

    I follow GB very closely. I also know my Smiths & own many. This gun is worth probably $650+/- $25. Several things with the seller. He states "As Is" yet offers a 3 day inspection. Also no firm shipping charges stated. I would get these two items verified before bidding. The description is MAYBE correct as "Mint". I would have said "Mint except for some freckles....etc." I suggest if not in a hurry google the Smith & Wesson Forum,join & watch for the one you want. May take a few months,it will be there. And at the best price.
