Like the title says, I stopped at one of my local shops today and in the case sat a mint blued Smith & Wesson model 40 from the early 1970's. It had just been traded in towards something made of plastic the day before. Though its far from traditional, its a beautiful revolver. Its got the box and papers, also in like new condition. If it was ever fired, I certainly can't tell. The grips and the steel have no signs of wear at all and the bluing is very nice. I can get it for just under $600 out the door, which seems like a decent deal. I've seen used models go for that on GB. When they're actually on there. Most of them are the new production "Classic" series models selling for $800-$900. I think people have got to be out of their friggen mind to buy a reproduction when you can get the original for less. Sorry, I digress. Anyway, what do you S&W fans think? Should I go for it? Its a beautiful piece and certainly not one you see every day. One good thing about so many people panic buying a bunch of plastic is that it leaves a lot of the nice stuff for those who appreciate it. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
