    The majority of the City of Atlanta is in Fulton County Georgia.

    This.38 Special M&P dates to circa 1913.

    It had a little mechanical problem that my gunsmith remedied by replacing the barrel pin and lining the barrel up properly. It was just slightly off causing the cylinder to bind.

    All is better now!!

    Best,
    Charles

    You might consider getting a S&W factory letter. However, from my experience you won't get much without sending good pictures of that backstrap. The historian can provide the shipping date and confirm such as caliber and barrel length, along with the purchaser's name. Then he looks at the actual cost vs. the normal cost of a plain in-stock gun to speculate on any added features such as that backstrap marking. The cost of a letter will be at least $50, and probably has gone up since my last request. Send request to:

    Mr. Roy G. Jinks, Historian
    Smith & Wesson
    P.O. Box 2208
    Springfield, MA 01102

    If you send me a PM, I can email you a S&W request form and phone number for Mr. Jinks.

    I had to wait 41 days to get this one. It was in pawn and I had to sit on my hands and wait for the time to run out before the shop could sell it......
