Hello everyone. Recently came into a collection of S&W revolvers, thought I'd join a forum :) I am a moderator at toyotanation, same ID. Getting into the tear down and tinkering with these revolvers, loving every minute. At the moment have a few .357 and a few .38. Will post all them up in the proper locations.

Welcome home! Two tips:
get a copy of the Kuhnhausen S&w shop manual.
second is get some 2 or 3 gal clear plastic bags to work in when releasing the tiny springs. They fly quite nicely!

Thanks! I have that book earmarked on Amazon to buy, along with the blue book of pricing. I keep my hand or a cloth over the spring loaded parts but that plastic bag idea is a good one!

Welcome to the forum... in my opinion, don't waste your money buying a firearms "blue book".

By the time they are compiled and published, they are already stale and inaccurate. They also do not take into consideration the differences in geographical pricing, such as the pricing in firearm law restrictive states such as California, where values for S&W handguns run much higher, especially the so called "off roster" handguns.

I agree with Conrad. Blue Books are valueless as soon as they are published. The completed auctions at gunbroker.com are a much better indicator of market prices for guns.

Welcome to the forum. You've already received some good advice, and especially on getting a copy of Jerry Kuhnhausen's book if you're interested in details of the Smith and Wesson action.

You have some of the finest revolvers ever made.

Welcome from Central Ga. Great bunch of folks here. Look forward to seeing the pics. I will add my free 2 cents and say you should buy the Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson. Lots of good data on models, dates, production, variances etc. as well as some wallet emptying pictures. Available in several formats.

You all are awesome, thanks for the welcomes and good advice. Glad I found this forum. I will have pics up by the weekend. I’ll have other gun pics in the appropriate threads since I have something like 5 S&W revolvers, 2 Glocks, a few odd ball silly derringer types, and a bunch of rifles/shotguns.

LATER....

Went ahead and took a snap of my revolvers.
