I just bought a used "unfired" S&W 39. It looks great! There is one tiny idiot mark one slide but I can live with that. This was a very fast purchase but HEY what are credit cards for anyways. lol

That's great. How's the DA trigger pull??

It was surprisingly smooth. I didn't mind it at all and actually really liked the SA trigger a lot.


Sorry for the crappy image to all it was my cell phone, obviously lol

I tell you what, the single action trigger pull is so light and far back, I scared the hell out of myself the first time I shot mine, I thought I had a failure to fire and then she went BANG! Good thing I kept her pointed down range..

This three gun rule on a CCW absolutely sucks, my old man has handed me down some truly classic pieces, I would like to carry them all from time to time.

My 39 is sitting the bench behind my LCP, 1911, and S&W 66, but I sure like the 39, a great piece.

Awesome weapon!...Some friends (Bob and Barry) had the ASP conversion done to their model 39s.

Very cool:

Be well, Bob

Very nice gun....Smith autos are very under-rated...their 3rd gen double actions and 1911s can hold their own against anything out there....and that 39, although a tad big by today's standards for a single stack nine, is a great shooting gun and it's a great collectable to boot.

Sweet. Let us know how it shoots once you get her the range.

That was quick -

Is that a -2 or the elusive no dash -

It is the 39 With no -. I don't know if you can make out the large extractor in the picture or not but it is there :)

Oh and 1 question. If anyone knows. The serial number starts with 85xxx, from what I have found on the net this would make it around a 1968 model year. Does that sound about right?

1968 seems close to the money. i'd suggest you contact S&W for specific year of manufacture.

I couldn't agree more.

A 39 no dash in anything close to unfired condition is always a 100% score. I owned a dash 2 in the late 1970's, sold it to fund another deal and regretted it so much I had to go out and buy a 59.

I still want another 39 in the stable someday....... very nice score by the OP. :D
