Stopped at a pawn shop I pass every day on the way home today. Got to leave work early since it's my bday.

Destiny.

This beauty was sitting in the case.

Locks up like a bank vault and the nickel finish is pretty much flawless. No chips or scratches - doesnt look to have been holstered at all. Can't have been fired much.

Grips are in good shape.

The gun will probably look brand new after a ballistol cleaning party followed up with some renn wax. I'll use them on the grips too and it will bring them right back to life.

Got her right at 5 bills.

Happy birthday to me.

Man I still need to post some pics of my Dan Wesson .357 Christmas present...

PS serial # is D624XXX - can anyone tell me when it was made?

PPS surcee is for the southern folks.

That's "slicker'n a gut!"

1973-1974 for serial numbers falling between D510001 and D659901, according to the Supica and Nahas "Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson."

Nickel's always a little scarcer than comparable blue models and 2-inch Model 10s are not as commonly seen so you have a winning combination there.

If you wish to banish any fine hairline scratches, either now or later, a light application of Mother's Mag Polish is appropriate. The wax will help preserve things afterward.

It's amazing how well those K-Frame snubs conceal. They also are very accurate and have smooth actions. They can "rain on the J-Frame's parade", all things considered, unless one is a 98 lb. weakling who finds them to be ... toooo heavyyyy.
