I have a .38 Special that I haven't handled, much less shot, in years. It is a Model 12-2 Airweight with a 2" pinned barrel that I bought new in 1973, I believe. At most, it had a box of wadcutters through it. The gun is just about flawless with the exception of a spot on the frame to the left of the hammer. The last photo of the gun shows this clearly. This one is $450 shipped to the "lower 48" with a three-day non-firing inspection period.

Thanks for looking.

Nice.

The Model 12 is the sleeper of S&W revolvers. It's a bit larger than the 5-shot J-Frame, and is a 6-shot. Fits larger hands much better.

I still have my old 12-2 with round but. Many years of use and carry wear on it. Used to have a later Model 12 with a square butt. Don't remember if it was a 12-3 or 12-4 (it was when the frame width was increased). I figured the fastest reload for a revolver was a second revolver. Any, still use my 12-2 for CCW quite often.

Thanks for the input, guys. I'm open to offers, so don't be bashful!

Figured that wouldn't last long. Was sorely tempted myself, but money doesn't grow on trees. The new owner is really going to enjoy this gun. It's a classic, and it's one of the best CCW .38 revolvers S&W ever made.

I also had the gun listed on the S&W Forum and received offers from posters from both sites at almost the same time (the S&W guy's hit a few minutes earlier). The offer from the S&W poster was $20 higher but it came with a lot of stuck-up, holier-than-thou S&W B.S. It turned me off enough that I elected to take the offer from one of "our guys."

I still have the 629 Classic PP available and will list a 64-5 later this morning.
