I'm posting in this category because except for one of my Smith's, they all fall into this era, so forgive me the slight faux pas, but here are some of mine that can fit in the decades from the 20's thru the 2000's, nothing from the 30's and nothing with an internal lock. Break the age category rules if need be and let us see your old ones as well as any post-war examples, this is a gun site and we all like to eyeball Smith and Wesson's! ;)

Edit. Come to think of it, I do have a 547 from the 80's- no pic though.
My collecting interest pretty much ends there, I do have some modern guns though (mostly Scandium guns.)

One observation so far is that it seems longer barrels were much more prevalent in the early days of the 20th century! The examples are simply beautiful :)

That gun is a .22 caliber single shot that fires either single or double action. Barrel length is 10". On this model the 10" barrel is the most common with a huge premium for a 6" barrel. These guns were built for competition and are usually well used with shot out barrels or relined barrels. I happened upon this at the local Cabelas store and was shocked to find it all original and in 99% condition. I have been enamoured with these guns ever since I saw one but don't usually part with the coin for collector grade guns. The simple beauty and elegance of this gun pried my wallet open pretty dang quick though.

Wow!!
After seeing the above, I am embarrassed to even show my small collection all purchased new in the 70's...
