    Do you have a build sheet, or a list of the modifications that were done?

    Thanks everyone for all the comments. This is the one rare gun that is as stunning in hand as in the pics. I'll check on the build sheet tonight. Here is a copy of the mag article. This should give you a pretty good idea. with all the serious intrest I've had I should go ahead and state that the first "I'll take it " gets it to avoid any hard feelings. If it doesn't sell quick it will go back into hiding.


    Being a custom gunsmith, Ted has gently massaged this former police S&W 681 into
    something typical of his work — minimalist, highly functional and above all … elegant.

    My current favorite carry gun (and always subject to change, like the weather) is my model 681. It’s an NYSP retiree, tweaked just a bit with the addition of my sight package with a gold line front and fixed rear, action job, barrel shortened to 31/2″ and re-crowned. All the edges are softened, and a set of handmade Turkish walnut grips made to match the “semi-round butt” configuration I did to it. It lives in an original Alessi holster when it’s not on R&R in a safe.

    It’s just about the perfect revolver, and there’s not much of anything I’d change.
