Default My jewel is now nestled in its proper home!

As some of you know, I have a really cherry transitional 22/32 kit gun, serialed in 1940 but shipped post-war in 1951 with mixed pre- and post-war parts. It's one of only 25 with that history, according to Roy Jinks.

At any rate, I recently won at auction, an original S&W shipping box that is absolutely a match for the gun. I was delighted to see my little gun nestled in the box. The box came with original wax wrapping paper and a shooting tips booklet.

Here's a picture of the gun in its box:



There are two identical labels on each end of the box. What appears as a smudge below the "22/32" on the label is actually a stamp that reads "ROUND." This refers to the butt configuration being round rather than square. A perfect match!



For more information on the gun, see my photo album on it here:

Now all I need is a proper sight adjustment tool and cleaning gear - anybody????

OUTSTANDING PACKAGE!!! I love to see guns in their proper boxes and with the proper accessories. I'll keep my eyes open for another needle nose black knurled SAT. I have only seen a few of them and I will be forever grateful to the Forum member who sent one along with a pre 27 gold box for a short stack of Benjimans.

Congrats and thanks for sharing,

Yeah, but how does it shoot?

I'm sorry, but someone had to.

Beautiful gun, and the photos are awesome as well!

If you were holding a bar of gold that size, would you feel any better about it than you do that revolver? I don't think I would!
