I was at a local gunshop today with an old Smith .38/44 Pre Outdoorsman. Somewhere along the way, the barrel had been cut at 4 inches and a lanyard ring had been added, right through the serial number. The guy was trying to sell it, and the clerk offered him $75. I thought about making an offer myself, but I didn't know what to offer the guy. I just gave him a phone number of a gun that I know who buys Smiths, just to see what he might give it for him.
