Description: This listing is for the exact revolver in the photos. Here is an original Centennial Airweight, numbered model 42. From its L3400 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1973. Type is pocket revolver. Construction is steel barrel, cylinder assembly, and internal parts in a lightweight alloy frame. Chambering is .38 Smith & Wesson Special, not designed for +P ammunition. Barrel is one piece steel 1 7/8 inch, nominally 2 inches, with 5 groove right hand 1:18.75 rifling. Sight system is integral blade front and fixed notch rear. Ignition is nose type internal hammer, without the usual transfer bar, but with grip safety. Cylinder capacity is 5 rounds. Trigger is .237serrated face service type, with 12 pound vicinity pull. Grip frame is small round butt type. Grips are correct original factory smooth Low Horn type. Weight empty is 15 ounces, with center of gravity at the trigger, 17 ounce vicinity loaded. Maximum overall length is 6 1/4 inches from the muzzle to the grip frame curve; 4 1/4 inches high, and with a lateral thickness of only 1.3 inches. Finish is polished surface blued steel and gloss black anodized alloy. Note that it has agency markings on the lower right side plate, over one cylinder chamber, and inside its top strap.Apart from those, Surface detractions are moderate, principally finish freckles, edge wear, two contact areas on the side plate, and grip wear. We rate this model 42 as Very Good Condition, 75 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, mechanism, and cylinder chambers are all bright and clean. Cylinder times correctly in all five positions; and there is no lateral cylinder play with the trigger fully depressed. Carbon deposits on the top strap and cylinder face are minimal, so we do not believe this revolver was fired more than 50 times. It served security duty in the vicinity of Borinquen Air Station in the Caribbean, strategic point for monitoring Castro’s Cubans and drug traffickers from South and Central America. We’re offering the early Cold War Centennial in the photos for only $ 619.00. Not transferable to Civilian Residents of California or Massachusetts until 2023.
