We have come across only a few of the resurrected Model 1950 .44 Military Smith & Wesson .44 Specials, the model 21-4, in 4 inch pencil barrel with the highly distinctive and attractive color casehardened frame. The parent revolver with numbered model designation is, as Supica and Nahas point out in the Standard Catalog is Too rare to estimate value. The model was reintroduced in 2004 as a lock variant round butt Model 21-4 Classic. All the specimens we have come across in the past 3 years have been round butt grip frame, 4 inch barrels. As nearly as we can determine, these are now discontinued, even though they are currently listed on the Smith & Wesson factory web page. This one was test fired on 8/30/07 at the factory in Springfield, Massachusetts. Factory specs are as follows: .44 S&W Caliber, traditional double and single action; 4 inch barrel; 9 ¼ in OAL; 37 Oz. weight; Large Frame Carbon Steel; Color Casehardened frame and bright blue cylinder and barrel; Altamont Wood grips; Service Rear sight and pinned ½ moon front sight; MIM Color Casehardened trigger and traditional hammernose hammer; 6 rounds capacity; internal lock with two keys. Since there is some coloration variance in these casehardened finish revolvers, we are photographing them individually. Also, for a number of years we have seen newcomers to the world of Smith & Wesson who do not realize that a person will never own a Smith & Wesson that has not been fired. All S&W Revolvers are fired at least three times at the factory, always have been; and consequently there is rotation marking. We do not allow these to be handled much less opened in our store, so we photograph them individually as they come in. Photos cannot, however, do justice to these fine revolvers. They are faithful, actually improved, descendants of the parent model, the .44 Military first produced in 1926, and they have the graceful, attractive lines of their ancestors that were state-of-the-art among G-Men enforcing prohibition. These revolver have not been opened or handled except for the photo session.. Own this fine, graceful N-frame Revolver, the exact one in the photos, for only $ 619.95. Special buy: we have only a few limited production S&W Mahogany Finished hardwood lockable display cases to fit the 21-4s, with glass lightly etched with a thunder ranch insignia, for only $ 39.95. These did not come with the 21-4 in this listing, and the 21-4 Casehardened is NOT a thunder ranch variant. Order one with your revolver for only $45.00 delivered, added to the price of your revolver.

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.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
