Do you have a letter on your pre-24? If so, what year was it shipped?

Mike:

Thank you for the date ! It is also nice to see a lettered 4" with the large S&W insignia on the side plate.

Question

Does it letter with the Target stocks(which appear to be Cokes)? Posting the factory letter would be a big plus for finding the trade you want. I have some RMs I might do a deal on.

The gun letters with checkered walnut grips.The letter says the target grips were added after the revolver was shipped from the factory.The cokes appear too be heavy rosewood.The gun has holster wear but was very well cared for with no dings,rust or heavy scratches.More photos added.MikeClick image for larger version

I currently own both of the guns you are seeking. The outdoorsman was shipped in 1934 according to the factory letter. The 4 screw 29 is from 1960. I'm sorry but I do not know how to PM.
