Oh Yes, She Will Be Mine...
To the right, you will see several variants of the S&W Model 64 chambered in .38 Special. These guns have had their hammers bobbed and converted to "double-action only" (or DAO). They were carried for decades by brave policemen around the country. Now they are retired and are sitting in surplus waiting for good homes.
J&G sales currently has a bunch of them in stock in various condition and trim levels, none of which cost more than $300. They may have some wear on their finish or grips, but they should still be fantastic shooters. Being police guns, they should have been taken care of reasonably well, and fired only a few times a year for qualification.
I am a huge fan of S&W revolvers, and really love this old school stuff. I think these are beautiful old guns, and they're just about giving them away now. I will be placing my order before the week is out. I can't wait to adopt one of these old public servants and give it a good home where it can live out its retirement with other under-appreciated old school firearms. I urge you to consider doing the same.
