    is a recessed chamber, square butt, six shot S&W model 34-1 in .22LR.
    Factory nickel, with adjustable sights, and a M202XXX S/N which dates
    it to 1982. This little gem is pristine, but with NO box or docs. I won't
    post the price I paid for it, cuz I got flamed badly in doing so on my
    last pic~! :uhoh: :scrutiny: ;)

    Sorry for the poor photography, as I'm not up too snuff yet with
    the digi-cam~!

    Cool gun. I would never flame on price. You are the only one who has to be happy with it. No, I don't want to know. Glad you are happy with your new friend. :)

    ROLL TIDE !!!

    Wow! That thing is cool! I've had my eye open for one of those for a while, but have never came across one for sale. Congrats on the great purchase.

    I paid more for this one than I do most~! :uhoh:

    $350

    But, I have seen the 2" factory nickel square butt model S&W 34-1's go
    for $499. ;) :D

    I have a 35-1 that is a great gun and very accurate. Nice price but I beat it by $50 when I bought mine.

    Many thanks folks, to all that replied. I bought the 2" S&W "Kit Gun" from
    an individual that really "knew his S&W's"; and once I reached $350, I
    couldn't go any further~!

    :fire: :fire: Flame you allright:fire: :fire: You stole it. No wonder you got flamed. You robbed the poor sole.

    But seriously Dan a beautiful example of the genre.

    Maybe while I'm in TN for the summer you can let me know of any throwbacks or doubles you run across.

    Kit Guns are just cool. What a great little can killer. If you like it, does not matter what price you paid, it's your money. Bill

    See, there actually are some nice things in Alabama! :D

    Great acquisition, Dan! S&W .22 revolvers are a definite treat.

    Does it have the tight chambers that some S&Ws are kown for? I once had a Model 18 that I couldn't shoot three cylinders thru without cleaning out the chambers. Had to beat the durn cases out!

    Hello [nitesite Dave my old bud-

    You know, I haven't even gotten a'round to trying the chambers of the
    little S&W 34-1 "Kit Gun"; with work, and taking my 2-1/2 year old grand
    daughter to the zoo this week taking top priorities~! ;) :D
