S&W Victory..Im a happy camper!

I always wanted one of these..I could have picked up a few cheap over the years..but they have gone up..went to a gun show, and this old guy had this at his table..said he had it for years..I offered him a trade and he went for it..This one was delivered to the Norfolk Virgina Navy supply depot on august 13, 1943..I have seldom seen one this nice..It has the bomb stamp on it, and all the correct matching numbers.best part about it was no paperwork was exchanged..he wasn't a gun dealer..my camera for some reason, wouldnt take a clear shot of the butt.

Wow...that's the one I've been looking for. I'm 66 now and that S&W has been on my bucket list for 20 yrs or so. Never found one that was right in price and condition....Congrats....Rodfac
