For any it may concern, lightweight revolver production had its seeds in aircraft metallurgy advances made in the 1930s, most notably under Howard Hughes’s sphere of influence. The word Air, in Smith & Wesson’s Airweight, refers as much to aircraft alloys and airplanes themselves as it does to the lightness of their frames. The all-alloy, experimental Air Crewman revolvers manufactured during World War II were the first ones. Even though the Airweight Chief’s Special, numbered model 37, has been the most prolific, here is the less-well-known, and stronger made, .38 Military & Police Airweight, numbered model 12-3. Frame is nickeled aluminum alloy; and barrel, cylinder, yoke, hammer, trigger, thumb latch, and internal parts are all nickel plated steel. Weight is only 18.4 ounces empty, including factory Goncalo Magna Service style grips. This larger 6 shot revolver stayed within 10 percent, then, of the weight of the 16 3/4 ounce Agent and Cobra revolvers marketed by competitor Colt Industries. Hammer and trigger are fully traditional, color casehardened .240 serrated service width, thinner than the standard .258 K Frame triggers and hammers of the period. Type is single- and double-action revolver with internal transfer bar safety. Round butt type frame thickness on this 12-3 is .080 thinner than the steel K frame siblings, so the 12-3 and previous variant grips will not interchange with standard K frame grips; these will, however, accept wrap-around Pachmayr SK/G and SK/C grips with no problem. The final variant of the model 12, the 12-4, introduced in 1984, was full width frame, parts, and grips. This specimen’s grips are professionally fitted K Magnas and period correct. The model’s discontinuance in 1986 closed the curtain on a 35-year run from the early 1950s. These are, then, among the scarcest Smith & Wessons of that length of production. This specimen comes to us from neighboring Shelby County, Tennessee, and it served for security purposes for a jeweler in Memphis. Its only surface detraction is very faint cylinder rotation marking and light carbon on its cylinder face, with very faint streaking on its cylinder surfaces. Nickel is fully intact throughout. From its condition and our knowledge of the domiciled family, we estimate it has been fired fewer than 20 rounds. It is grades Excellent in our opinion since no more than 10 percent of its finish is affected by any handling evidence. Photos, at any rate, ought to suffice so that our distinguished shoppers can judge finish grade for themselves. We’re offering this pristine 1983 Model 12-3 Nickel 2 inch Airweight for only $ 569.95. Not transferable to civilians in California, the District of Columbia, or Massachusetts.
