    Always loved my S&W e-Series, but never liked the look of the black hardware. Was thinking about ordering WC bulletproof replacement parts in stainless, but then I'd have to figure out how to fit the new parts and re-stake the plunger tube, etc, etc. So, rather than that, I went cheap and...

    Sterling Hayden's S&W RM. Great history about the actor. https://americanhandgunner.com/handguns/behind-enemy-lines-sterling-haydens-registered-magnum/

    So I did some digging and can't seem to find a picture thread for S&W 1911s so figured now would be as good of time as any to start one. I'll start off with my SW1911TA with some mild changes.

    Well, I like to specialize (I guess I feel like I spend less) and pre-pandemic I didn't even own a revolver and then out of "lock-down" boredom started to surf GB nightly and settled on starting a little collection of 38 special snubbies. Now, I'm up to five with bids on a sixth :) I see prices...

    While the factory grips were pretty good, especially for conceal carry and tucking in your waist band I saw these target grips on eBay and thought "what the heck" and I love them. The gun feels way more secure in my hand. The last set, the rosewood grips, came from Etsy via Thailand and of...

    Yup, S&W Model 42 with a concealed hammer and yup, a grip safety. Pretty damn cool, I couldn't resist.
  7. Revolvers
    I'm a bit of a tinkerer and I bought a few S&W revolvers for relatively cheap money (compared to 1911's at least) to learn the platform and work thru the re-bluing process. I've re-blued a Model 36 that I carry occasionally and a Model 28-2 that came out pretty nice. These are by no means...

    Nothing ground-breaking but since I was off last week, I decided to convert one of my SWs to a GI guide rod with recoil spring plug and here's the result. Assuming reliability is not impacted in any way, I will be giving my other the same treatment. I used a Wilson GI stainless bulletproof guide...

    Hey guys, so I have this old revolver that has been in my family for over 60 years. The gun has never been fired by us nor do we have any intention of firing it. My grandfather had found it on his farm in Pennsylvania back in the 1950s and it's been with us ever since. The only identifying marks...

    ***Sold pending funds***For sale is a S&W 28-2 Highway Patrolman 6” in .357 Mag. This was the first revolver I purchased and frankly it was a screw up. Should have asked for more pictures, but didn’t. Thought was made in 1979 (birth year), but was actually 1980. Carried by a State Trooper in...

    For sale is a S&W 66-1 stainless 4” .357 Mag with nice aftermarket grips and a new Galco leather holster. I bought this as an entry into revolvers and because it was made in the same year I was, 1979. I’ve carried it twice in the pasture and fire less than 50 rounds through it in two different...

  16. 1911 Gunsmithing
    Has anyone here used S&W Performance Center for gunsmithing? I’m having my gun sent in to S&W for a sticking safety and thumb safety that engages too early and I figured I could get some work done while it was there.

    Came across a no lock 686 with a 3" barrel today. I'm not sure what it is, exactly, but it's probably the closest I'll ever come to owning a CS-1. I'm not on the S&W fourms and I'm not a big revolver guy. Anyone know what I have?

    In honor of my new VZ grips, figured I'd show the gun/knife combo. The knife is a Benchmade 698S Foray. Let's get another thread of gun/knife combos going - post what you're running!
