Heck!
That right there ain't no "Old Revolver".
Nice though for one of them a new fangled Stainless Steel guns.

This is an old revolver, but it's only 59 years old!

This is older still, but it's only getting close to 70, like me.

S&W Victory Model .38 Spl.

Smith357,

great shooting! Haven't taken my 64 or 10-6 in Nickel yet to range...they're 73-74 era guns and have nice smooth actions...can't wait.

Yea, those new guns like that 64 are pretty decent, but not quite as nice as these middle aged ones like this. Don't let the "new" grips fool you. It was made in 1947.

This one isn't a Smith & Wesson, but still looks pretty good for being made before WWII (1939). Still shoots just fine too.

A Smith 64 is my house gun. I can leave it loaded for years without worry.

I never had a 64. I'd always purchased K-frame magnums. Then ran 38's through them and scrubbed rings out of cylinders. :)

Then I ran across the J&G ad for the trade in 64's that they had for sale. I purchased one. Finest gun money I ever spent! The trigger is as good.....or better.....than my Performance Center revolvers.

Accurate little tack driver. Good looking too! No ugly MIM parts. Flash chromed hammer and trigger. I love my J&G 64. Enjoy yours !! :)

Nice guns, gentlemen! I keep hearing they're tack drivers...been too busy to hit the range...maybe this week!

Question for any of you S&W 64 fans:

The crane my gun binds just a tad when trying to close the cylinder from full open. I switched screws from to back and lubed the heck out of it. But still does it....any suggestions? Buy new screws from midway/brownells? Or file one of these down a tad?(not very experienced smithing with guns beyond normal field stripping)

Thanks
