    I picked up the nickel 39-2 today S/N A228xxx does anyone know its birthday? No box with it but looks like it was used very little.
    I will post pictures when I get a chance.

    Just got the 3rd edition SCSW

    I just received my copy of the "Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson" 3rd Edition. This old wheelgunner would not have expected that the first ID would be of a S&W auto.
    1973-1974 A175001 - A235000
    Maybe this will help to start paying back for all the great information and camaraderie that THR has provided over the last 52 months.

    I'm jealous with envy~! :D (No only kidding, of course~!) :D

    The S&W model 39 and 39-2 was mighty fine firearms, and the predecessor
    of all the "wunder nine's" of the 70's-80's-and 90's. I have owned many, but
    only one factory nickel 39-2 with S/N A222567. That gun was a beautiful
    example of S&W quality at the time under Carl Hellstroms direction. I never
    even fired this weapon; but likewise, didn't have enough gumption to keep
    it either. Sure~! I made a little money on my next move involving this fine
    firearm; but today, the money and the beautiful model 39-2 are both gone.
    I have wished I had it back on many occassions~! ;) :uhoh: :D Enjoy~!

    Hey PRR My Friend-

    There is definitely something wrong with that S&W model 39-2~! (Look Out:uhoh:)

    Laughing Loudly :D, it needs to be in my collection.

    Very good find, indeed. I know that you will enjoy this great handgun
    for many years too come. Stay safe, and shoot straight~!
