I had a post on here a few weeks ago about my Pre Model 10. A factory letter confirmed it was an NYPD gun shipped in October 1946. I reached out to RM Vivas, who has an unbelievable database of NYPD gun history. He got back to me today. First, the gun again: I get an email response today from Mr. Vivas. Here is his response: "Your gun #S846515 was sold on 16OCT46 to Probationary Patrolman Daniel C. Hynes, Shield #13855. It would appear that he got some good use from it. Best, RM Vivas" He also included 4 newspaper clippings on Officer Hynes. He used my gun in a shootout with 4 gang members at a local high school. A high school located in my old precinct! Hynes was awarded a medal for valor for his actions. He was a young cop and a veteran of World War II. If you zoom in, you can read the shield number. Such a great story. Thank you, Mr. Vivas!!!
