Just so you all the early 70s. After the model 39 was first produced, the us army had preordered a million units. But at the last minute they backed out and went with Remington instead. So S&W was left holding a ton of product. So...there were 100 39-2's made in stainless and distrusted to police sergeants or captains in select markets to encourage the sale of the guns to law enforcement. I know this because I was alivr, and my father received one. And I inherited it upon his death and it is currently in my gun safe in the other room. There were only 100 units. They are not shiny, the shiny ones are nickel plate. This is a very rare gun so don't feel bad for not knowing about it.
