Hello
I was at a local gun show this weekend and although it is a rather small show, it has produced some very nice revolvers, long guns and accessories in the past for me. Saturday was chocked full of people, so I waited to see what my Gun show buddies had taken in on Sunday. It was about 2:00 in the afternoon when I stopped by to see the guy that recently sold me a nice model 38-44 Outdoorsman, and he had taken in a model 27-2 revolver. It had the 8-3/8" Barrel and was blued. He had it marked at $600.00, but the revolver is not what Interested me, it was The vintage Walter Roper grips it was wearing that did. I asked to see this revolver, and while I was holding it, The vendor asked me if I could use it ? I replied I all ready have a nice model 27-2 at home, but what I could really use is the grips on it. He said that without the Original grip's on it, That he felt it would Hinder the sale as People wanted Guns original. It occured to me that he had No Earthly Idea that the grips he had were Original Roper's, so I asked if he wanted to swap them for a set of Original Factory target grips ? He dove at my offer and Pulled these grips off his revolver. I Gladly swapped with him, and now have them on my model 25-2 revolver as shown. Regards, Kurt

Hello guntotin_fool
Yup, I sleep fine. The Guy did not want these. He said they Looked Ugly and he wanted the originals for the Model 27 he had, so I swapped with him. I have found a new revolver for these that deserves them more than my Model 25-2 though. They now reside on my First Year 1935 Registered Magnum being they are from the Late 1930's I felt they would be better Placed on it... Kurt

Revolver and stocks look fantastic! Indeed, you are very lucky.

Hello robbt & Others
I appreciate your Kind words. This one came from our annual Smith & Wesson Collectors Association meeting held this spring in Troy, Michigan. It belonged to an associate member. if you want the hard to find ones you have to become a S&WCA member and attend the annual meetings... :wink: Here she is witrh a Pair of Original sneakers...
