    S&W Letter Arrived...... Eye Candy!!!

    This piece of “bling” went to a Miami FL dealer in 1949.

    The Mexican silver grips were obviously a later addition.

    Now this is a BBQ gun!!!!

    Best,

    Nice gun with all of its nickel remaining? This link shows a 1915 photo of the Railey Milam store in Miami, FL.

    Charles, very cool! I think that's a pre-war post-war transitional M&P.

    It appears to be all original. It was someone's show horse....not a work horse!!

    I got it out of an online estate auction in Minnesota.

    Requesting A Smith & Wesson Letter

    This was the request form 10 years ago. The contact info is probably still correct, but the $50/letter has likely gone up.

    I've been keeping my eyes open for a 6" Model 10 or older for some time and this could be the coolest one I've ever seen. But being a fan of guns that show some wear, I wish I walked into a gun shop and saw one like CJS57's above. The letter says short actions ended in 1948 but your gun is 1949 which might be a little bit more special if there's some "transitional" collector variation out there.
