I got this a little over a year ago at a local pawn shop. It was NIB. I paid $450.00 for it. I know CDNN has been blowing them out for cheaper, but I've always like the factory adjustable rear. And besides, it was new and I wanted it NOW! :lol:
Absolutely mint and I firmly believe that it was never shot except at the factory. The serial # prefix is EKZ and I haven't called S&W to ask about it. I'd imagine it's a late 90's, but am not sure.
It does have the MIM trigger and hammer. I used it throughout the IDPA season last year and it performed very well for me. Gave me a few match wins as well.
