Default S&W Revolver Thread.

Show em off, talk about them etc...

I'll start with my three.


This 6" 28-2 .357 Highway Patrolman belonged to my grandfather. For years he used it as his bump in the night gun, and I do the same with it.




Not much history behind this 4" 617. The 10 rounds of .22lr it holds equals most .22 auto loaders on the market....pretty cool in my book.




Lastly is my recently acquired 4" 681-3 .357. This is a fighting revolver, I would not feel bad at all having this on my hip.



Particularly cool is that this revolver started life as an issued service weapon for the Topeka Police Department.




That's what I have, now share yours.

1977 S&W Model 15 found in a local pawn shop behind all the bottom feeders.

Good price and it cleaned up well.

Smith 10-8.



The back story behind this one is I bought it for my stepfather in the late 80s to replace the TERRIBLE Taurus revolver he had, (only revolver I fired that jammed, AND Taurus refused to work on it, too old), so I found this refinished Model 10 for cheap. He kept it under his bed protecting him and my mother for years. He never fired it, but I test fired, cleaned it and reloaded it with fresh ammo once a year. After my mother passed on, with his eyesight failing due to wet macro degeneration, he handed it back to me as he went into assisted living. A few months later he passed on to be with his wife and his World War Two buddies. Yes, that's his 1943 graduation photo from Radioman School for the United States Army Air Corps, and the last picture of the two of them together.



It proved to not only be quite accurate for s schulb like me,



...but also very photogenic, especially with the old Bianchi Patrolman holster I found in a used holster bin.



Nothing special to anyone else, but priceless to me. This revolver, complete with the same Pachmeyer Presentation Grips that were on it when I bought it for my Pop, will be handed down to my son in time.

This is my only S&W right now:


327PC with an old set of wood.

I am in love with the N-frame .357 magnums. I first fell in love with my dad's 627-0. If I were a collector, I'd start with every variant of the 27/627/327 family.
