Was it common for guns to sit in inventory for that long before being shipped?
No, but it seems happen at S&W from time to time. Since S&W did (and still does) so much LE business, my guess is that these M66-1s may have been a contract overrun that was held back in case a large-volume buyer exercised an option to buy some spare guns.

It would not be the first time that a gunmaker got rid of an overrun of a discontinued or slow-selling model by making the remaining excess guns into a commemorative edition.
