    ** Post updated to reflect Mfg. date changed to 1980.
    I bought this gun specifically to refinish. It had been carried a lot, possibly a service revolver, and the grips were (are) rough. It's a good shooter so I did a quick bead blast and re-blue just to make it look a little nicer. There's still pitting I didn't attempt to clean it up at all. Zoom in so you can see any imperfections if you're interested. I stripped the grips and used some tung oil on them but they're still pretty rough so I added a set of Altamont grips to make her pretty. Nice gun fairly and firmly priced at $600.00 shippedFFL to FFL. Thanks for looking.

    What’s the “dash” engineering change? Looks to have recessed chambers but not a pinned barrel? How’s the timing/lockup?

    Doc it’s a -2 but that’s all I know. Timing and lockup seem good to me but I’m not sure if I know exactly how to check those things. It shoots good I know that. I’ll give any long time well known Addicts a 30 day return guarantee if they’re not satisfied. You pay shipping and transfer fee ($65ish) and I’ll refund the rest. I’d be glad to measure any play any where if you tell me what I’m looking for.

    Wow. That is a great looking revolver, and one of my favorites of all time. That's a super asking price, too. If you lived down the street from me, I'd try tempting you with some trades.

    Well you kind of do.... it's just a really long road. I've been known to meet an Addict half way on occasion. I'm open to trades but I'm in the process of reducing quantity and increasing quality. Mostly looking for customs or collectibles. Thanks for looking.

    Quick search and it appears the early 80's was a transition period for S&W away from pinned barrels and recessed cylinders. It seems fairly common for a revolver from this time period to have a recessed cylinder but not a pinned barrel.

    Is that a hot reblue? Just asking because it looks really smooth. I'm in the "Gee, I want that, but just paid for surgery yesterday and need to sell other things to get it" category. So, I imagine I won't be snagging this.

    Another gun fund, I mean covid stimulus check, would be nice, right about now!

    Thanks to @Doc45 for the education on timing and lockup. This revolver passes the test so yes timing and lockup are good. His recommendation for cylinder gap was .006-.008 and I would say this one is at .008 maybe .0085. I can squeeze a .009 feeler gage in between but it's tight.

    I’ll drill a hole in it and stick a pin in it if that helps.
