Hey, just think of the gun as the lady, not a gun for a lady. Now get back down to that pawn shop and get dat gun afor somebody beats you to it. Move it, move it, move it.:hand56:Fun video!
I don't know what they did to those Model 65 Ladysmith's but those things will shoot. A unique configuration too with that shrouded ejector rod, three-inch barrel, and fixed sights. Smith & Wesson must have worked some sort of magic on the actions for they are uniformly smooth as silk. My brother-in-law has one he got for himself and it has a nicer action feel than does my favorite old Model 10 that's had a jillion rounds fired through it. I'm jealous.
There's one in a pawn shop in a nearby town right now and it's just as smooth and light of trigger. I took a hard look at it. I like everything about it: barrel length, ejector rod shroud, hand-filling stocks. But I don't like the side plate to be sporting "Ladysmith." Guess I'm not in touch with my feminine side for I was calculating ways to remove the marking.
That is as I understand it as well. Only thing I think different is they made some of the lady smiths in the 60 models in 3 or 2 inch. A rumor perhaps but I have heard it. It does appear to me, from some things I read and from those few I have had in my hands, that the actions of all Lady Smiths are worked over a bit from the normal runs.As far as I know, if it is a 5 shot it is a 60 or 60 variant. Ifit is a 6 shot it is a 65 or 65 variant.
I think, but don't hold me to it.
