    Thanks. When you get some time, Google "Fitz Special"... and be amazed.

    The original idea with these removed the entire front half of the trigger guard (for quick trigger access for men with huge hands); but the problem there was that if the revolver was dropped or dinged, the remaining part of the trigger guard could (and usually did) bend up and bind the trigger; rendering the revolver totally inoperative.

    Bill Jordan had the same huge hand issue, but he knew that making a true Fitz wasn't so smart, all things considered. I saw a photo of his personal M-19 that had this "thinned" trigger guard in his book, "No Second Place Winner". Seemed like a good idea to me.

    My intention behind this "job" was to shorten the grip frame more than anything else, because some of the trousers I wear have shallow pockets and a regular size J frame butt pokes out a bit. I did the trigger guard thing as an afterthought, since I was hacking and grinding on the frame anyway. I did the trigger itself some years back; this was my fathers's EDC that I bought for him in 1991 when he decided to start going about armed all the time. He's gone now, so this "customized" revolver will stay with me until its time to pass it on to my oldest grandson.

    Thanks. I sure like the looks of your pistol.

    That's a real prize you have there. S&W only made the titanium cylinder models in .38 Special for six years- from 1998 to 2004. They made them without that stinking lock for less than two years. Therefore, a 337 or 342 without the lock is a rare bird indeed. I treasure my no-lock 342.

    That beauty looks cherry.

    My first J frame, purchased for a back-up when I got the job, was a nickled M-38. S&W wasn't making AirWeights in stainless/natural alloy back then, and blued duty guns won't last two days down here without constant attention. I sold it to buy a first-edition M-642. Sure wish I had kept it; I do still have the pair of M-66s I toted around until we went to bottom feeders in 1988.

    I have run across several young cops who had no clue how to even open the cylinder on a revolver. Sign of the times, I suppose...

    Thanks. The 49 I got from a local collector. It has never been fired and still has the box, papers, and cleaning kit. I think I will keep it that way and just pass it down. It isn't the most expensive S&W out there but the lines just work. Kind of like a 63 XKE, or a 65 GTO. It is just a da*m machine but it is a machine you never get tired of looking at.
