Here I sit, 2 weeks post-op from a total knee replacement, living high on the short-term disability hog (at least I will be if and when it kicks in :fire: ), and this shows up ( http://www.auctionarms.com/search/displayitem.cfm?itemnum=10268989 ). And I start scheming on how to get it... :scrutiny:

That is a really pretty M&P. Jack the dog leaves no surprises with his auctions. Those are about as clear of pictures that could be shown. I fell into a nice M&P just about as nice as that one at a local show. Except it was a 2". I got it FTF for $275.00.
You probably "need" the one you're looking at.;)

That's a real nice S-prefix Postwar!
It is so great to find a nice specimen . . . and real nice ones are pretty hard to get!!! Good luck, and GO FOR IT!
SOME MORE EYE PORN FOR THE POST-OP BOY . . .
Here's an early C-prefix post war that I got this year. It was made in 1950, just a little past that transition period.
Reality snuck up an bit me square on the arrears yesterday when I finally put together my taxes. $2300 or so to Uncle Barack, off set a little by $600 or so back from Aunt Nikki Haley. Plus, it's up to $376, so it's no longer a steal, though surely still a good price if you're sweating as you look it over... :uhoh:

I see the bids have continued to climb.
That's a nice gun, but it's gettin' to be on the pretty expensive side.
I wouldn't dig myself in too deep on that one. There are more out there.

I've bought from Jack before, great to do biz with. Nice looking M&P. I'm fond of the old ones.
