So I have acquired this Smith and Wesson revolver. Flyfish informs me that it is a pre model 10, circa early 1940's. My question is what would it take to get it servicable again monitarily speaking and what will that do to the value?
The cylinder stop is missing and it has some wiggle in the cylinder on the center pin, allowing for some gap between barrell and cylinder. The finish is a nice "petina" to put it mildly and the stocks seem to be original.
I'm a hairs breath from just sending it back to S&W and asking for a total refurb.
