    Sorry to advertise on the forum but l really want to share with my friends here an outstanding deal on a whole bunch of revolvers we just got in yesterday. In a nutshell we picked up a large number of pre-lock S&W 65, and a few 19s. Later model 10s and 64s, a few old Ruger Speed Sixes and a few Rossi's and Taurus's. The Ruger, Taurus, and Rossi revolvers are $200 and the Smiths vary from $225 to $260. Condition varies as one might expect with security guard issued revolvers but most will clean up nicely and more than a few are very lightly used. Get them while they last they are going fast because they are a really good bargain.

    just my luck....I'm two months "too young" and short on funds....


    "great deals on used revolvers" is a big understatement...$200 for a Speed Six? :shock: Under $300 for a S&W M19 :what:

    Are any of the Ruger Sixs in stainless or are they all blued? I guess I'll be stopping in today. Hopefully you still some of them in...

    The speed sixes are blued with wood stocks.

    Checked them out today. They're as-advertised.
    Highly recommend for a "frugal" first-buyer
    Great deal. These seem to be as-advertised.

    Do you accept in state checks? Or is it cash/credit only?

    Drop what you are doing and get out there now.

    The Model 10's are the best gun-store firearms bargain I've ever encountered.
    Lightly-used MIM models with safety lock.
    How about that. Safety-lock model 10's now on the "used gun" market in quantity.
    Whatever thoughts you may have about safety-locks and MIM parts, Smith and Wesson still knows how to put a beautiful blue on a revolver.
    A smoking deal for the money.

    The Rugers look like $200 guns.
    Lots of finish wear. A whole lot.
    I wish these Rugers could talk. I could listen for a week.
    Mechanically-solid, but the front sight on each one l saw looked like it had taken a hard hit.
    Muzzle crown on each was undamaged.
    Grip panels in poor condition.
    Good news is, these are serial-numbered higher than the 151-prefix, so new Ruger grip panels are cheap and abundant on eBay.
    I didn't buy one, but I kind of wish I had.

    Model 64's (DAO) are stainless, have some nicks and scratches, and are a really solid revolver for the money.

    I think I saw one Model 65.
    About the same condition as the 64's for a few dollars more.

    I think I got the last 686.
    Lots of scratches. Solid gun.
    Priced to sell.

    I didn't look to closely at the Taurus and Rossi.
    There were a few in the corner of the cabinet.

    I left with my wallet considerably lighter.

    Put the pedal to the metal and get out there.
    You gotta at least pick up one of those nice Model 10's today.

    I've got one of them WEG. Looks like a twin. Fred Schmidt did a trigger job on it back in the late 70'ss and it's the best DA revolver I own. Great Find!

    Yeah those 686s didn't last long, didn't mention them for that reason.

    Please dont post pics of your family outings.

    We do accept cash, all major credit cards, and checks, guns on trade on a per case basis.

    I got a 64 from a different dealer at the Dulles gunshow a couple weeks ago.

    Swapped in a DA/SA hammer for the DAO hammer.

    The DA/SA hammer was hanging up real bad.
    Then suddenly it was free, and dry-firing without a problem.

    Click!

    Click-click!

    Click-click-click-clickety-clickety-click-click-click!!!

    Oh joy!

    Oh wait....

    Buggeration!

    Cheap and relatively easy to fix. Heck, MidwayUSA stocks S&W "hammer noses" (hammer mounted firing pins). Mine's circa 1988 and is a ton of fun at the range. Picked it up from a forum member (different forum) a few years ago, used to belong to a security company. I got a spare firing pin just because I heard they can (not will) break if dry-fired a lot. I've never had a problem myself, but I like to have spares. Heck, I have a spare barrel bushing for a different pistol yet I doubt I'll ever actually need it.

    I just dropped the DAO hammer back into the 64.

    No problems with that hammer.

    I'll play around with the busted DA/SA hammer (nose) this week.

    I been playing around with S&W hammer noses since 1984.



    ...getting a tool or two for 'em now

    Any good source for a DAO hammer? I'm thinking of making one of the 64s into a car/carry gun, and adding a Barami hip grip and Tyler T-Grip. Why not?
