Finally found one worth having. Made in 1919, it’s in pretty good shape. Not a beater like most. Bore is pretty nice too. All correct with nice wood. Big Larry

Not bad, decent amount of bluing.  The one Manny had at the Cody show was quite a bit better but of course it likely cost more.

The blued ones are hard to find in excellent condition, probably because they are so darn much fun to shoot none of them ever sat in the safe.

Best Regards,

Done?  I’m skeptical–unless you swear off watching Gun Int.

Pretty much have all the 22’s except the SS I sold JWA. Don’t need any more S&W’s either. Been looking for a 1/2 nickel M1906, but it seems most have been re bbld. I was lucky to find this Deluxe with its nice shiny bore and original bbl. Eventually, I will find a 1/2 nickel in good shape.   Big Larry

My friend in Alabama has a friend named Walter Wash Jr. who has his Dads RM he used to kill a Public Enemy #1. They took it out and shot it. Col. Walsh was my Dads pistol coach in the Marines, and probably the best all around shooter ever, in the USMC. Triple Distinguished.   Big Larry

His Son would never sell it. Col. Walsh had two, and gave one to a friend. There’s a few of these for sale on the Net. $7,000 average price. Thanks, Big Larry
