I took a new picture of my S&W revolver line up. I'm selling my little 940 so this is a current picture as of 10 minutes ago... The last picture was like 4 years old. Maybe this one looks OK, at least no toes in this one. :mrgreen:

Ebay broke the bank finding these grips years ago. I never recovered.... Buy & sell until I was happy, then do it again. :mrgreen:
Now I'm not collecting anymore, but going the other way slowly, as I have too much junk... kubvcabo

Fine lookin' wheel...

Have to agree...you own to many combat stocks for any one man. You must have been the one responsible for driving up the price.... :mrgreen:

I can't find the pictures, as I figure I posted them at one time here too.

I have a hard time using a camera, these are old pics, and I swapped out that front site for a ramped one (as shown in the old pics)

This was done last year at the S&W factory. I sent in my idea of what I wanted and the engraver Dave Misiaszek did the work. I looked locally for an engraver and no dice, emailed a few from the internet and the same luck, so I boxed it up and mailed it the the S&W factory after a few phone calls. They got my pictures of the style wanted and it took them around 4 months to do.

I don't remember what I paid but it was around $1500. This is 75% coverage, plus I think $9.00 per letter, plus more for the banner around the S&W logo.
It was an expensive deal but in person it looks very nice. So nice, that I don't shoot it, and this was the reason of buying it in the first place was to shoot it. fhfjjjj
It had lots of problems and after fixing it up, I said screw it and had it engraved....

here you go:















Here are the close up pics posted a few weeks ago:

Here's a "small" wheel of snubbies. They certainly can't compete with the other beauties in the previous photos, but little heaters try too! ;)

I ditched everything in 9mm over here. fhfjjjj I had a Beretta pistol and the little 940 as you know. It gets to a point where you have way too much in guns & ammo, so I'm trying to downsize some...

I don't want to sell any other revolvers, they are all fun to look at and the ones I shoot are good shooters.

Beautiful engraving. It must be nice to have a talent! Especially one you can make money from!

WOW s'all I got to say.Thanks for sharing and I was wondering if you shoot the 500's ?.
Sure I shoot the 500s. Not as much as I once did but they come out when I need to make noise. (the first gun was traded away for the removable comp models) kfjdrfirii

I ordered the first 500 back in 2003. I was in a cast as I broke my hand. I finally got the gun and I put it away because the hand was not ready. Then I started hunting for the ammo and then turned to reloading. I was shooting my 44s with the heavy loads, the hand was Ok so I figured the hand was ready to try the new gun.

My new gun shooting session lasted only 1 round, but I drilled the center of the paper! I nearly dropped the gun on only 1 round fired. I was holding it so tightly that the recoil compressed all the joints on my right arm. The pain came right back, as I thought I broke the hand again. I couldn't continue. So I packed up and went home. The hand throbbed for an hour afterwards!

Anyway, I learned to shoot it and the hand it back to normal so it's fine to shoot. I even made a hole less comp for the little one because the blast was just annoying. The last time out I put 50 rounds at the 200 yard mark at the club I belong to. Believe it or not, it hits really close at 200 yards if you have it sighted in at 25 yrds... This is out of the 4 incher. I didn't make any groups on paper, as I was shooting the dirt back stop. The dirt this gun kicks up is unbelievable.
