Ok its already been said no locks or mimm parts,Pinned and recessed,original grips. Maybe they all use 38 caliber bullets. Or they are all non stainless.
I give up tell us the answer to this question.
I just noticed the first one is a model 29 so it cant be 38 bullets.
How about they are all discontinued models

Clue is that I included the dates of manufacture and purchase. On a couple of them it's pretty crazy (IMO).

Going from the date of manufacture to the date of purchase, it took that long to find a 'deal' on that particular model?

LD has it. All arrived in unfired condition. I don't look for LNIB guns but I keep finding them.

And yes, I have put each and every one to work.

Dang it SP you made me get out some scratch paper. The 42 was 42 yrs old when you bought it, the 27-2 bought in 2004 was 27 yrs old. And that is all I got. :?: I thought it was barrel length was shortest was oldest but that wasn't right. See what happens when we let people with degrees post. tnbtlaa

I'm not trying to be a wisearse, nvpAN, but I bet everyone of those wheelguns had three rounds
fired though it before leaving the factory. fhfjjjj Just info in case a true novice sees this. fnovnpoa
But that Terrier being 54 years in that ANIB condition is amazing! Nice score SP.
