Here's a 'pre-27' from circa 1954.
I felt guilty about my recent foray into 'Rugerworld', so I caught up with member dant at the Dalton show, then followed Drew's suggestion and came home with this gun and had Ramen noodles for lunch! :lol:
It'll be a real good shooter...appears unfired since it left Springfield, but decades of sloppy storage gave the right side a few freckles.
Thanks, Dan!

Don...Congrats on obtaining a nice example of S&W's ".357" Magnum. You can always count on Dan T. to come up with something extra nice. :) .

Model of 1950 ~ Right, SaxonPig.....? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Great gun! I also have a ’54. Since this gun is not perfect you can get out there and use it as intended! I love shooting mine.

Uh Giz....

I think we all appreciate your enthusiasm and desire to remain engaged in the conversation, but I believe the Good Doctor was referring to the stocks on the revolver in the photo....

I've often felt myself that the 3 1/2" 27's with Target Stocks were a little ungainly....

Giz, you keep confusing me with someone who objects to the "pre-27" or "357 Model of 1950" designation. Neither bothers me in the least.

The only misused term that grinds on my psyche is "pencil barrel" and I don't even know why. I can't explain it but some reason I just cringe when I hear or read that.

SP and Drew,
Point well-taken on the 'ungainly'...
I might have Patrick Grashorn make a thick pair of stags for it, then add a high-polish Tylet T-grip.
I only find the 'ungainly' thing an issue on guns I don't use as shooters.
IMHO, the postwar magnas on a magnum handgun ( that you actually use) are like a screen door on a submarine. :lol:

Stags and a Tyler-T? Excellent! :clap:

hey guys, thanks for the kind words, I knew Don would like it when he actually "laid hands on and held it......" Just glad it got a GOOD home and was able to "pass it on..." I could not "pass" up on this gun, even though I got it with a fever of 104 degrees and pneumonia to boot, ended up in the hospital 45 minutes later...but I did it, though I did "forget" to get the 'other' gun, and boxed model 13....oh well, what can I say :?

Hello Don
That sure is a beauty. I bet it would Bark with a shot of Blue Dot or IMR-2400 Powder shot through it...Let us know how well she shoots and groups.. Hammedown

Thanks for the kind remarks.
Friday is 'range day', and I'll report back on whether or not any paper gets punctured!
