    The adjustable-sighted version was the 67, and that was my duty weapon when I entered law enforcement. Great and accurate piece once I got a set of better grips on it. Placed very highly with it in LE competition shoots as well, back when such activities existed.

    Well done.

    If that were my deal I would keep all the grips and the concealment holster. You can probably sell off the duty holster, speed loader pouch and 2 speedloaders to go with it as a lot sale. Maybe even sell the rubber grips but I would for sure use the wooden combat grips on the revolver right now.

    Followup.

    Well just got the 64 back from my gunsmith! He did a great job, fixed the end shake by stretching I believe the (yoke)! Also replaced the hand! Revolver is now mechanically gtg!
    Sold off the accessories, not a big fan of the combat grips (they were kinda beat anyway, otherwise I would have kept them) ). I kept the regular s&w wood grips and 3 speedloaders, didn't want or need the holsters either as this is just a range toy!

    After all said and done I have $230 into the gun, and from what I understand k frames have skyrocketed in value recently! At least in my area...

    Now I just have to resist the darn trading urges!.... fella has a vg+ marlin 336 in 30/30 its an older one with nice wood and the JM stamp on the barrel...I have a feeling if we traded straight up I would lose on that one!! ????

    Wow, you got a great deal!

    And no, I wouldn't trade for a Marlin.
    But I'm not a fan of rifles, I ike my revolvers too much.
    (just ask my wallet) ;)
