    First,TNX----------

    More information----The revolver was a gift to the gentleman(while on leave-WW11),from his father.

    Barrel is aprox.4 1/2"-blue is 90%--alas,the original grips are gone(lost)and have been replaced with pachmyers..

    The owner is 90+,and is going into assisted living -his mind is sharp,but the body is weak....

    He needs the money-----------he needs to sell it--

    We are in central In.---------------sales to FFL,or Ind.carry permit...

    Thanks again----tallend

    tallend,

    Your buddy has a Registered Magnum....the first Smith chambered for .357 Mag. Later it became the Model 27. The Reg. Mags. are VERY desirable collector items and can be quite valuable in some cases. Please do the research for him before it is sold.

    I highly recommend lettering this revolver through S&W. Their historian is Roy Jinks and you really should have him research this gun. See the website above for lots of info on Registered Magnums.

    KEEP SMOKIN' EM.....Dave

    I would be interested in the Smith & Wesson. Do you have a price in mind? Could you E-mail me any pics? I will mention that Dave Carrol usually deals in higher condition pistols, henceforth the price shown above. Thank you, Rodbuster.

    Holy cow, have prices gone up that much on Registered Magnums????<br>
    <br>
    I have a nice blued 6-1/2" made in 1936 (2nd year of production) with the then new Magna grips and a Kings Patent white outline U-notch rear sight and a Kings Patent Patridge front sight with red bead. It would probably be somewhere between 90% and 95%.<br>
    <br>
    I've carried it for hunting in nice weather, have used it for small game, sometimes for tactical shoots, and sometimes for CCW.

    I would put that thing away and use a less valuable piece for your handgun work. Would hate to get an accidental ding on it.

    Brian...I think I'd limit your Registered to careful range shooting and stop carrying it. It is definitely too valuable to holster.....get a 27 shooter for your field work.....although even a nice 27 will set you back a fair piece of change these days!

    KEEP SMOKIN' EM.... Dave
