Yesterday an old friend asked me to look at some handguns he wanted to dispose of. The one I liked best was a 5" nickel Army Special SN 5453xx which pretty much puts it at the end of the run. There is an N stamped under the SN. Does that indicate nickel? Checkered wood grips w/ silver medallions. Timing and lockup is perfect and after wiping the schmutz off the exterior and cleaning 30 year old burnt powder from the bore and chambers, it's gorgeous! It's at least excellent. I already have more OPs than I need and have never looked at Army Specials, so, what are folks paying for something like this?
