    I bought a Smith 66 3" at show Sunday. The gun is bead blasted and Dynaported. Trigger is excellent. I got around to looking it up in my S and N book and the gun was listed as a factory issue "Manufactured for RSR in 1996". I thought the finish and porting were done by somebody as custom work. To be honest I'm not wild about the finish. What the heck is RSR?

    RSR is a distributor, like Davidson's who have 5 distribution points around the nation. One of the largest going.

    RSR is a wholesale gun distributor. Your gun was made for them same as S&W makes up specials for other distributors like Lew Horton.

    Congrats on your 3" 66. The finish can be polished off with Flitz or Mothers Mag polish and a Scotchbrite pad. You could also send it back to S&W for refinishing.

    Those 3" 66 from the RSR orders are scarce, and bring quite a bit of money on the auction boards.

    Enjoy yours!

    I bought this on the spur of the moment. From what I can tell it should have had Combat style grips on it. Those have been removed by a previous owner. I may just leave it alone and see if it's worth keeping.

    Here is the link for the RSR Group site. Like the others have said, they are very big...

    I'd really like to see a photo of this Model 66 if you have one handy. If not, no worries!

    RSR are the big guys here in upstate NY. I don't know a gun dealer that doesn't deal regularly with them.
