DW...Since your Combat Magnum and mine were shipped in the same month and both have pretty low numbers, it would be interesting to find out when S&W began making large shipments of this model. I know it took about 5 months to start shipping the 44 Magnum in quantity even though it was announced in January 1956.

I'm sure you know I wasn't slandering your stocks. S&W isn't known for the best finish on them.

As for the shipment dates it's a possibility they went to the same distributor. I have a feeling you won't let it rest till uou know for sure.
