    Beautiful! Congrats!

    Doesn't get any better than that in a snubby revolver.

    Is it a dash-1? Looks like it's recessed. Was the 66 ever pinned?

    Looks like a fine shooter to me.

    Recessed, not pinned. The earlier model 66 no dash and some 66-1's were pinned. Not all 66-1's are recessed

    66-1

    Just got my 66-1 out and took a look and it's pinned and recessed. It's a very good shooter and the gun I take when I go up in the hills.

    Any idea of when this was made. I think I've had it for 8 years or so.

    Pretty cool to find a transitional piece like that, especially in that condition. Beautiful gun!

    Great find!! I think you're gonna love this gun. I put a set of target stocks on mine (after this picture was taken) just to see how it felt and liked it so much in my beefy hands that I left them on. Really helps with felt recoil. Great feel, great look. Just a joy to shoot.
