    Oldie But Goodie: A Pair of S&W Shootn

    Hello again,

    I am very glade to see that there are so many fellow Ts.com members that are enjoying my Oldie But Goodie threads of my firearms collection. I thank all of you for your kind and thoughtful comments.

    Several members have commented that these Firearms should not be locked up in a safe, but should be taken to the range to shoot them…

    Sorry, I have to disagree with them on this one. In my opinion, I think that there are certain Firearms that are destine to be Heirlooms. I feel that they should be maintained so that they will be around for future generations to enjoy. Again this is just my personnel opinion…These guns are not locked up in a gun safe, but on display in my gunroom, so everyone can enjoy them…

    Now on the other hand, here are two of my Shoot’n Irons, that I do shoot, when I am able to shoot..

    Thanks for looking,

    I will be posting more of my pistol collection in future threads, keep an eye out for them…

    Gee, buzz... you have longevity proof I'm sure...

    I've got an 1880 Smith that's still ticking... how's your 1880 Ruger doing? Oh, sorry, your's didn't come around for what, another 70 years or so?

    And your Ruger doesn't have the value of a Smith at trade-in time either.

    Top Single, I'd try soaking the removed cylinder in MPro-7. It is supposed to accomplish exactly that - but be sure to reoil the ejector, because that will remove every bit of oil in the unit.

    Haven't tried it yet, myself, but I've got a gallon of the stuff in the garage just waiting for the day when I get that ambitious.

    The only area a Ruger has it over a comparable S&W is in sheer strength, which comes from its being an overweight casting instead of a forging.

    My S&W Triplelock Target .44 made in 1912 is still going strong, as is my S&W Registered Magnum made in 1936. Like Big-M asked, how is your 1912 and 1936 Ruger doing?

    -----

    As far as the "oldies" above, they're too new of a design for me. I prefer the traditional barrel profiles. Also prefer fluted cylinders.

    Maybe I ought to post a few of my old S&W's?
