I guess it would spread out the recoil impulse...

Not trigger locks. Custom made gun props. Better to hold gun at a better angle, but you are right. The gun would look better without the props. Thanks, Big Larry

The prop on mine is from S&W, it was an dealer item for displaying guns in sales case. At one time S&W had them for sale on their website, but ended that many years ago, as such, those blue props are becoming collectable to S&W fans, and spawned the demand for the custom made ones.

I don't think they detract from the gun that much... I like the one on your gun, it's neutral color is less distracting than mine.

Fine looking Smiths, but that long barrel would be a female dog for me to handle!

That's a good looking and interesting revolver. What all customizations went into creating it?
I bought it like this. The bbl. and cylinder are numbered to the gun which ended some years ago. Best I can ascertain is it may have been blue and with a shorter bbl. In any event, it now sports 3 T's, the stocks are later and appear to be Rosewood. It also has a red ramp sight and white outline rear. It is dated inside the stocks on the frame, 10-1982, as to when all this work was done. A factory letter would not disclose all this work. # 10K 0228 was originally shipped in 1977.
It remains unfired. Oh yeah, it has a star on the cylinder and the bbl. Someone put a lot of $$$ into this revolver. Not me though. I got a great deal on it. Big Larry

You should write SWHF. They may have the service records on it.
