I just fired it again on the range, and it is good. It may have been made in 1969, and it shoots as well as the new stuff. The trigger is perfect. It's quick but not too quick.

I had it lettered by the S&W Historical Foundation many years ago. It was shipped on 5-7-1969 to Berm's Wholesale Sporting Goods Co. in Denver, CO.

I have no clue how it got to me in GA.

Beautiful revolver, I have been shooting mine in DA alot more lately. Here is my girl in 5".

That is called a proud pin (you see the the front pin). It's really nice. S&W used a pin to fix all front sights. Many were sanded down so you can't see them, and the rest show and are called proud pins.

Here is my 5"

It is in nickel and lettered to 11-22-1960. It's been fired a few times, but it is mostly a safe king.

You will see that it has two proud pins on the front sight. It also has the box.
