Boomsticks: Time for new Holy Grails.

As most of y'all know, I collect two kinds of firearms: Smith & Wesson revolvers, and old military rifles. For the last couple of years, I've had two Holy Grails, one of each type. I badly wanted a reasonably-priced prewar fixed sight N-frame, and a Greek M1903 Mannlicher-Schoenauer. In the last three weeks I scored on both counts. Pics to follow...

It's a Smith & Wesson .44 Hand Ejector Second Model, made in 1921. The serial number makes it the 472nd civilian N-frame hand ejector made after post WWI production resumed on 12/06/20.
