Default S&W Post-war Pre-10 M&P NIB

I just got this last week. When the guy said that it was New in Box I figured that he just meant that it was in really nice shape, but as far as I can tell, it's only been factory fired. It does have a turn ring, obviously, so it probably has never been owned by an obsessive collector. I was kinda bummed as I wanted to shoot it, but I'm not going to be the one to break it's 50+ year streak of perfection.

For my money, post-war K frames like this are snubby perfection. I love the look and feel of them and they certainly shoot great too!

Check out the front of the cylinder and around the fire pin. Unless the thing was re-blued, it has no signs of significant firing.

Oh my Stars and Garters... that's really nice.

The box looks mint; all my gold boxes have corner damage.

Thanks!!
There is some minor damage on the tops of the corners as can be seen in the first few pix, but really not bad at all.

Several days later the bolt was rusted shut but I guess the fouling wasnt TOO bad.
