1917s are great revolvers. Bought one at a local auction couple of years ago. I went to auction to bid on other handguns but didn't get them. When the 1917 came up it was getting few bids so I jumped in and got it for $350. It was the best buy i have made on a firearm. It had a professional reblue and turned out to be a late 1920s commercial model. Didn't know anything about them at the time but sure glad I purchased it after learning the history of how they came into being during WW1.

Lots of enjoyment at the range. I like to let others shoot it as many young people have never seen one. Don't let a refinish put you off if you find one in good mechanical condition.Tough guns and built to last.
