Grandpa decided it was time to pass along some goodies. Among a few .22;rs, a smith and wesson 915, a 5 digit serial numbered savage model 99 in .250-3000, was this baby.
His department issued SW 15-2

It ain't pretty but it saved grandpas life countless times, for many years while he was a deputy.

That's so cool, they use to be able to keep their issued arms.

They usually have the option to buy when they switch weapons or at retirement.
The DA pull is nice, but the SA pull is SCARY, easily under a pound.

That truly is a treasure. Use it to begin a tradition of heirlooming it, when you have your own grandchildren.

Nice! I hope that someday when my grandchildren are old enough to own guns that I may have a chance to hand them down my firearms. Give your grandpa a hug and a kiss for doing such a noble thing.

I bet that thing has history. Take care of it and keep it in the family.

That's a RIGHTEOUS gun! May it keep you protected as well!

Does anyone know where I can look up the serial number to see when it was made?

If it could only talk, imagine the stories it could tell.

Congratulations!

My maternal grandfather left me his Oakland PD badge, S&W .38 Sp duty gun, snap brim OPD uniform hat, and Sam Browne belt stamped "OPD". He was one of the first Oakland motor cops (pre-1930), and then a Court Bailiff.

I treasure this stuff because it was his, and he was always proud of his career...
