    I have been thinking about a buying a model 66 for a while but kept putting it off, well I found one that really caught my eye and I just had to bring it home.

    It’s a 3” Satin stainless 66-4 with factory mag-na-porting and wood grips

    Impolite?

    Would it be impolite to ask what you paid for it?

    Thanks

    It was $525 and I ended up paying $450, it was a limited run and I don’t think that S&W made very many so I lucked out being in the right place at the right time.

    The grips are stock, it came from a limited run of 500 or so made for RSR Distributors in 1996 and was shipped as shown.

    Hey Gixerman, really nice piece. Have you noticed any flash or smoke from the Magna-Port?¿

    I bought a used 66 in 3" this spring, it's a dash 4 also. Firing pin is on the hammer and NO LOCK. :) It came w/ some unattractive black grips which promptly got replaced with some wooden Hogues. It's scary accurate--either DA or SA. Wife shoots it real good too.

    I have digital pics of mine. I'd post a picture, but don't know how to do that part yet. Any place on this site that walks one thru the picture posting process? (And I do mean step-by-step)

    Gixerman, just noticed from looking at your pictures again that your 66 has a steel front sight blade (which would make sense w/ the Magna-Port). My 3" has the red/orange front blade plastic insert.
