I want to see your Smith revolvers made in the 1950's. I think the fit and finish of this decade was just beautiful. Here is my latest from the 50's, a pre-27 with the wrong stocks. Don't worry I am actively looking for a set of stags for her. Not in pristine condition but good enough for the carry rotation. Now I know several of you have amazing examples from this decade now let's see them.

.22LR Kit Gun


Prob. 1st year production ~1953


I have several nice early 1950s models, but prefer the finish that S&W provided in the pre-WWII years and in the late '50s-early '60s. :)

Here is our old family .357; two pin front sight and the original grips are in the safe. An accurate and fun piece. Still capable of doing the same good job it did back then.

Here's something a little different.

.38/.32 "Terrier" Pre-Model 32, Improved I-Frame, circa 1956.



Note Original "Sun Ray" Box, factory relabeled for the Terrier.



This gun shows no evidence of having been fired.

When I can master this pitcher-posting stuff Iwill send a few, but for now, my best 50s piece of S&W workmanship will remain my .38/.44 HD transition arm, shipped in 1947. They probably couldn't afford to
build that quality of hand-fitted workmanship -- a common, working general and police arm made post-WWII with pre-WWII parts -- today.
