    Another old one.

    I just couldn't help myself.
    It's old and finish challenged, but she needed a good home.
    So last week I picked up a 1948 pre model 17.
    She doesn't have a lot of blueing left. But she has a heart of gold. I stripped her down and spent 2 days scrubbing, cleaning and putting back together.
    I've shot it a little so far. But I'm impressed already.
    Despite the loss of blue, the rust speckles, the pitting.
    And few mechanical wear issues.
    SHE SHOOTS DARN GOOD!
    I'm happy to own this well used and aged Smith.

    She will get to go skwirl hunting this year and many more years with me.
    S&W really has produced some fine guns.
    From the simple mechanicals that are able to handle the lack of care and oil. To the amazing carbonia blue on the old guns.
    I'm enjoying my little pieces of history.

    Inspired by a loudmouth hog.

    Picked up a new model 17 today after work. Thought I'd try supporting the current S&W products. That little piss head and his pitiful demonstration made me think.
    I should get a new gun, for no reason other than to support S&W.
    So I decided on a model 17 classic and it came in today. Plus, it's a great day to buy a gun and I only have 1 other 22 revolver. It was lonely.
    So heres a teezer pic, lol.Attachment 334819

    I'm a little pressed for time this week, archery opens Sat morning. But I'll try and clean her up tonight and tomorrow. She kinda weird looking now, the oil it's got on it is what I'm thinking.
    Soon as I get her presentable, I'll put up a pic.

    Got a few pieces cleaned up. Got the yoke, cylinder and stocks cleaned.
    The bluing is very nice. Its darn near my m14 from 1966. The stocks are superb. The grain, fit and finish is excellent.
    Heres the pieces,

    Finally getting back to this. Got it cleaned up today.Name:  20180917_174359.jpg

    Put Hogue stocks on it, I like them. The factory stocks are very nice, so I'll keep them as new. This is a darn nice gun. The trigger in SA is getting better. I've shot it 300 times so far. The DA is terrible compared to the older guns I've shot. Its minor to me, I shoot SA almost always.
    Heres the first six rounds,

    Some sight adjustments and the next 94 rounds.

    Overall it's a very nice gun. I dont care for the IL hole either. But I may plug that up this winter.

    Hey Swirl,

    Great job cleaning it up. Looks great and from the pics I see shoots great also. Enjoy it!

    Later,
