    New (to me) S&W Centennial snubby.

    I will admit it, I am addicted to the older Smith revolvers. Picked this little jewel up at the Raleigh gun show this weekend. It is a S&W Model 40 Centennial I believe also called a Lemon Squeezer. From the four digit serial number I think it is a 1952 model, imagine that a revolver almost as old as me. With better than 95% blue and the only wear evident being the ring from the bolt it is in great shape. I am almost embarrassed to admit I only paid $435 for it.

    Beautiful, congratulations.

    The nice thing about the original Centennial models vs today renditions, is that S&W provided a small hole through the grip safety allowing it to be pinned if your shooting grip didn't depress the GS.
