    Picked up this gem recently for less than a new S&W would cost, it's a 1950 Target Model in .44 Spl:

    Which is the reason I seldom buy a new one - of most anything.

    Nice catch. :D

    Yep, defective......

    Send it to me and I'll try to figure out what its problem is. Most likely take me about 50years though.

    Drooling accomplished! Is that going to be a sporting or defensive piece?

    It'd be a shame to add that defective counterfeit to your collection. Ship it to me along with $20.00 and I promise I'll never tell anyone who got taken.

    :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    This is really unfair. I have just registered here and start looking around, and this is the first thing I see. Okay, just to show I am a nice guy, I'll give you your money back, plus $50.00 for your trouble...

    Congrats

    B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! I have to agree bought an old 10-4 myself a few weeks ago, for $180. Took it back after polishing it and turned down a $400 offer. What has S&W been thinkin' latey.:what:

    Roy Jinks is still alive??

    Anyway, beautiful gun. It ought to be in a museum. Man, when they outlaw guns in the U.S. and turn that into a manhole cover, it's sure gonna make me sad. Don't fret, though, you can always call 9-1-1 if an armed criminal breaks in.
