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 Thunder Ranch logo and designation. 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. We only have a few of these, and our photo sample was test fired in 2005 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; Bright Blue frame, 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; and factory gold plated Thunder Ranch sideplate insignia. 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 open one only and photograph only one. 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 since they left the factory. They come in a premium collectable flat blue box. Own one of these fine, graceful N-frame Revolvers for only $ 629.95.

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.
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.
