    Vintage S&W Model 60

    First off, I am not a revolver guy. I know very little about them and only shoot them when a bubby brings his to the range. But, like many of us, I have always had a soft spot for the classic snub nose. Too many cop/detective TV shows and movies, I guess.

    This first came to my attention over the weekend. It is a S&W Model 60 circa 1973 (thanks for the information, bmcgilvray). The seller was asking $400. I donít know if I over paid or not, and I donít care. This little gun just seems to scratch an itch I never knew I had.

    So, here it is.

    Wonderful find at a great price, congratulations. Having the original box and accessories adds even more to the value.

    You did great!!!! I would jump on it in a heart beat. Classic piece. I like your line "scratched an itch you didn't even know you had." Classic line.

    Great find!
    The S&W Mod. 60 is one of the greatest CCWs ever made.
    For a revolver guy its a must have ,thats why they go for $500.00 to $600.00 around here.

    Very nice. Including box. For that price you did good. Those usually go for over $500 here locally.

    I owned a Model 60 no dash for a few years. Great gun and only one of two guns I regret selling.

    Congrats! I'd totally jump on a Model 60 for 400 bucks.

    Those things are coveted and they, along with their blued counterpart, the Model 36, go for quite a bit of cash these days.

    My dad has an old Model 60 in great shape from his LE days. It's in a closet and he hasn't even seen it for years, so I offered him a trade. No dice.
