    Hy, I bought a new toy: a classic S&W wheel gun mod 13-1 3 inches 357 magnum .
    It's unfired as new as built, this treasure was one of mine's fried king of safe and I bought it for 600 euro
    I'm proud of out duty ccw this masterpiece!

    I really don't like revolvers but that is a beautiful gun. On the one hand I think if it's really never been fired it should be kept pristine but on the other hand I mean that's a working gun it wasn't made to sit in a safe and be a display piece. I don't know if I would use it for carry because carry guns get beat up but I would have to shoot it at least some I think

    Unfired, maybe, but not uncycled judging by the drag marks on the cylinder. it's a beauty to shoot and enjoy. Looking forward to the range report.

    There is a large metro-agency in my hometown that issued the 38spl model to hundreds pf their officers...was a great combo for the time.

    VERY, VERY Nice!
    In 30+ years, I have owned and sold MANY different guns. The one gun that I kind of wish that I hadn't sold off was a S&W 64 3" DAO NYPD revolver. It had a brushed stainless finish. GREAT trigger on that gun. I loved shooting it … sold it to a guy who was really liked different S&W revolvers, he saw it and said that he had to have it.

    OP, that is really a nice gun.

    You are doing fine.
    My Italian centers around Capo Ferro, and is very small, and weak, and confusing. :cheers:

    Sure Sir,
    by italian laws all imported firearms had to pass a control through Banco Nazionale di Prova in Gardone Valtrompia near Brescia. There all imported firearms are tested firing various shots by national ballistic experts.
    After these controls firearms are put on national market.
    However I think also S&W technicians test handguns at the end of production!

    Outstanding!

    Of course it needs to be fired … to clear its throat you might say.

    A 3 inch K-frame makes for a fine concealed carry weapon.

    "Old school carry gun"

    When a Policeman in 1960 we carried 38 Specials.
    I bought this 2 inch S&W K Frame to carry off duty. ($65)

    I still have it. Shot it so much the hammer spring broke. I still shoot it once in a while.
