My latest purchase, a S&W Model 66-1 with oversize grips. Found her in the original box, with the original paperwork. Looks like someone had run a box of ammo through her and put her away for the last 30 or so years:
She shoots very well. I carried her on Sunday in my Bianchi shoulder rig without any issues.
I hate you.
pretty.... umm what you wanna trade ?? LOL
Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .
Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.
That is sweet - very sweet.
I actually prefer those grip styles on all my revo's, N frames and smaller. They feel good.
Would it be rude to inquire re price? In that condition I fancy it could hardly have been cheap - and a dash one too! Lovely wheelgun to cherish (and shoot!).

It looks pinned and recessed to me, and you said it was a 66-1. That would make it about early 1970s vintage, I believe. I have a 66-3 and admire this model of revolver.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

Congratulations on a fine acquisition!
Thanks for all the praise guys, I was real luck to find her...I have wanted either a nickel model 19 or a 66-1 FOREVER but I wanted a pristine example.
I paid the tidy sum of $385 and I would have done it again if there were 2 of em'!
I just love the feeling of carrying a 4" K frame, and stoked with 125gr. GDHP I sure don't feel out gunned.
I am planning on ordering an Andrews Custom Leather vertical monarch rig for this gun, I have heard great things about Andrew and his products but opinions welcome.
Thanks for looking,
As you can see I HATE S&W revos:
(Top to bottom 27-2 4", 66-1 4", 10-8 4", 60-3 2", only the J frame is not pinned and both magnums are recessed, no MIM, and the firing pin where it belongs, on the hammer!)
Because they usually have a way of making me go broke!

I love to see folks who still love the 66. My 66-3 3" is an awsome pistol and I usually carry it during hunting season. That is an awsome purchase.
