    Dammit, well, correct this situation whenever you have finally cooled off.


    I really like the L Frames, enjoy that sucker, shoot it like it was made for it... Oh wait...

    Hello friends and neighbors// If it has the original wood grips the date is stamped inside. At least they are on my 1983 586.

    There is a S&W revolver DOB sticky in revolvers also. Radagast and others have it down and provide a great service to THR.

    Nice purchase.
