We had our monthly meeting at our club tonight. One of the older members brought in several long-barreled revolvers in his collection, and offered them for sale. Among them were several Ruger SA's, a S&W Model 29-3 (10" barrel, adj. front sight), and this jewel; Model 17-3, 8 3/8" barrel, target hammer and trigger, box and papers. Just under $500 out the door. Hardly used, with a very faint turn ring. I can't wait to get this one to the range on Wednesday.

That is just beautiful. And you can shoot it and not go broke! Right place at the right time. Enjoy it because if it were mine, I would.

Just to stir the pot a bit, I'm adding a photo of the 17-3, and its cousin, a Model 14-3. Both go to the range tomorrow for a little shootin' fun.

Very nice! kfjdrfirii

I know the long barreled guns are sort of out of favor right now, but there was a time when they were king of the hill. I miss those days...

Gotta love the long barrels!

I heard S&W sells bipods now for the AR's. You might find one to use on those rail guns you've got there.
That's are a pair of real beauties you've managed to put together.
I have a 6" model 14, so i can just imagine how accurate your M-14 is. It'll be a real tackdriver.
That Model 17 is a great find, and the seller certainly did you quite the service selling it for that price.

Enjoy your range session.
