Serially numbered 9K265xx, this Model 66 Smith & Wesson is just that: a Model 66, no suffix. It is in excellent condition finishwise, as the photos attest. Surface detractions are few, minor, and inconspicuous. There is mild light scuffing on the right side of the barrel; one light buff scour on the right side of the frame forward of the barrel pin; light rotation effect around the forward side plate screw; mild stress visible to the middle side plate screw that may be original to the revolver; three or four tiny streaks on the bottom of the trigger guard; one or two tiny pecks on the upper left side of the frame back of the barrel pin; light buffing on the right side of the frame from cylinder contact; and light cylinder rotation marking. Grips are Excellent Condition Walnut, not original to the revolver, but with slight wear, some to the edge of the right panel body opposite the checkering, and one tiny chip on the forward butt of the left panel. Positively, this revolver retains the classic 1970s streaking, its original finish, admirably. It is fully traditional, with non-cut walnut target stocks and satin stainless hammer and trigger. It is pinned and recessed, authentic Bangor Punta period manufacture, no less than a 1976 Bicentennial revolver. We consider it to be Excellent 95 percent; but we have included sufficient photography for interested parties to judge finish grade for themselves. Box is not original but is an appropriate, period model 66 box, 4 inch.
This revolver is excellent mechanically as well. Blast effect to the underside of the frame topstrap directly above the forcing cone is only moderate, a shallow crease no more than .001 by our estimate, as the photos show, that traverses most of the width of the topstrap. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is slightly above average, .008, so that would explain some blast effect without the revolver necessarily having been fired a lot. Lateral movement, or wobble effect, to the cylinder is no more than 1mm total with the trigger relaxed, and negligible with the trigger pulled. Bore and cylinder chambers are clean and Excellent. Double action trigger pull is consistent, slightly gritty; and the hammer travels an additional 10 degrees or so after the cylinder times into place in that mode. On single action, the hammer travels a full 25 to 30 degrees after the cylinder times, and the single action trigger pull is a very nice, crisp, 3 ½ pounds.
This is an outstanding representative of the classic era of the model 66, the mid 1970s, when inflation was more pronounced than it is now. Shortly thereafter they were commanding prices in the $500 - $600 range. We’re offering this one, however, for only $ 549.95

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
