    2nd M&P Postwar Pre Model 10

    Just won this one tonight on line. Lucky I guess. I am also in the running for two more revolvers in the next two days. Wish me bad luck please!

    This one seems to be in pretty good shape. C prefix in the 1949 to 1950 time frame.

    Money order goes out tomorrow and with luck I will have by mid week next week.

    Cleaning and range report to follow. I'll also be researching cleaning stocks. I know I'll need acetone and tung oil. When soaking the stocks do you take the medallions out. If you do take them out how do you do that? Thanks.

    You don't. Check the medallions to make sure they aren't plastic. From post WWII until ~1952, S&W used molded silvery-gray plastic medallions. Also, don't put tung oil on the back of the panel. S&W left the back unfinished.

    Don't use acetone because it will melt them. You can cover them with painter's tape and work around them with acetone but don't immerse them. Alternately, check Formby's Furniture Refinisher.

    I sure hope so John. No one else at the auction wanted it so I am kind of concerned. I have one other "C" prefix whose s/n is about 40,000 higher and it turned out to be a very good shooter. Hoping for the same here.

    The first one I "won" was shipped in May of 1950
