My 642-2 just picked it up today and an old Gun that has been in the family for years. Would love to find more out about it.

Smilin Buddha, the "old gun" is a French or Belgian pinfire revolver dating from around the time of the Civil war (after the Civil War, these were replaced by separate-primed revolvers that used percussion caps). You should be able to find some stamps or markings somewhere on it, and if you post those, that'll let us know which country it came from.

Yes, that is a Belgian proof-mark, so this revolver was built in Belgium. It looks to be a straight-across copy of LeFaucheux's original French design. In a pinfire design, the percussion cap is inside a copper cartridge case with a brass pin pointing into it, and that pin passes through a hole in the case to the outside, so the hammer can hit the other end; the rear of your cylinder will have a little slot that lets the pin pass through to the outside of the cylinder, and the heavy ring around the recoil shield at the rear of the cylinder is to stop those pins from being hit accidentally.

Just got these new grips for my 28-2. Want to be sure to preserve the original grips since the finish on them is virtually perfect. I like the new grips too!



Gun is in great condition!

S&W 649 and Iver Johnson Target Sealed-8

Hello! I am new to this forum. Here are my two blasters. The first is my S&W 649 Bodyguard, manufacture date of 1994. I had my local armorer file the front sight and install a red ramp insert. It truly improves the accuracy quite a bit! This gun can be shot three different ways - single action, continuous double action, and the third way, as I call it - "clockworked double action". The trigger has a handy... lockup point, or lack of a better word, at the final point in the double action cycle, which allows for a single action-type follow through. The 649 also fires .38 Special, .38 wadcutters, .38 +P, and .357 rounds. Speedloaders make sustained fire a cinch.

The second gun is an old 60s-era Iver Johnson Target Sealed-8 .22 caliber. It holds eight rounds of .22 Long Rifle in a unique (but antiquated) fixed frame/removable cylinder setup. The rear sight is a TINY V-notch, cut into the hammer, and the front sight was a skinny blade, thinner than a dime! Needless to say, finding the sights, indoor or outdoor, was pretty tough. SO I had to remedy that... so I bought a L-bracket at a hardware store, presumably for a door or window or something, for like 49 cents. I drilled and tapped the top part of the frame and filed down the bracket, which already had reccessed holes for screw mounting. Then my armorer (same guy who modified the S&W 649) gave me an aftermarket front sight, as seen in the pictures. I removed the original front sight and used epoxy to secure the sight assembly to the barrel. I wrapped baseball bat tape around the original wooded handles for extra grip. SO while it doesn't look pretty, this old Iver Johnson is my pet project, now brought to the best of its ability with some creativity and original work!

Victory at last!!! I just picked up this British Comtract WWII .380" (aka .38 S&W) S&W M&P "Victory" Model revolver this morning. The finish is a bit dodgy, but it is complete with numbers matching and the bore is bright and shiny. I have been wanting a Victory Model for some time now. I am half-way done with my quest, now I need to find a US .38 Special version next. Also in the photo is a 1943 dated box for .380" Mk.II Cartridges.
Thank you
Mark

Well, after lurking about the forums here for a bit, admiring everyone's revolvers, I figured I'd throw my hat in the ring. Pardon the poor quality, couldn't find my camera and had to use my phone. It's a Smith and Wesson Model 19-3 that I picked up at the beginning of the month and have yet to shoot.... And it may be longer now thanks to the 9 inches of snow.

Hey, can anybody tell me what kind of gun this is? I've seen a few of these 'mini' revolvers chamberd with 22lr, and I am curious since they are so small!

Here is the original post

And the picture

That will be either a Freedom Arms or a North American Arms (NAA) Mini-Revolver; both companies make their own versions of these tiny revolvers in 22 percussion, 22 short, LR, and magnum chamberings. They're neat, but so small that it's possible to shoot parts of your own hands off if you're not careful.
