Default C Series Hand Ejector, Should I buy?

I spotted this hand ejector at my LGS. Serial C 176***.
Condition looks great except for a "bobbed hammer and engraved "bendix" on the side.Action is smooth and it looks like is has very little use. May be re blued? Could the hammer be replaced? The grips show very little wear. For $250 is it worth it? Any help is appreciated, thank you.

For $250? Yes, buy it. ca. 1951. The hammer can be replaced if you wish. See eBay.

I agree . . . buy it. If you do decide to replace the hammer, this is the shape hammer spur you'll want to find.

No, it does not look reblued, and it does have the correct sharp-shouldered magna-stocks, so even with the cost of replacing the hammer, this is a very good deal on a shooter, and the name might even be the name of an officer who carried it. Buy it!

There was a Bendix Company at one time which manufactured automotive brakes and also electronics. Maybe for plant guards? I don't believe they still exist, at least not under that name.

Buy it. That is a great price for what looks to be a very nice revolver, despite the hammer. I would snap it up tout de suite!!

Best Regards, Les

I checked, Bendix as a corporation was basically merged out of business back in the 1980s, with segments of its original product lines sold off to numerous other companies. Typical corporation games. But the Bendix name still survives for some of those products.

Perhaps it was owned by William Bendix?
Buy it, shoot it, have fun!

if it locks up tight, the timing is correct and the extractor is straight ....that is a very good price for a pre model 10.....

For $250, that gun would be sitting in my safe and I would be starting a "Look What I Found Today" thread or posting a few photos to this thread: Show-N-Tell - The Modified S&Ws. And I'm not even that much of a fixed sight guy. The high shoulder grips are worth $100 - $150 and the modifications are on the cool side of "tasteful" (but I like nicely modified guns). I love the bobbed hammer and the red insert on the half-penny front sight looks well done and very practical. The "Bendix" looks to be neatly inscribed and for a $250 5-screw 1950's shooter would not deter me one bit. BTW - the finish looks to be original to me.

Given the bobbed hammer and front sight
I bet that old gun has been slicked up.
Buy it for sure....

At $250, I wouldn't have been able to get my checkbook out fast enough! And, if it proved to be as good of a shooter as I think it would be, I would be leaving the bobbed hammer and it would be in my CCW line - up.

Looks sweet to me. I too am wondering if the action has been "slicked up". I'd pay their price but just for giggles would offer $200. There's nothing to loose right? .

Hmmmm....... save your money and find one with a complete hammer and that isn't defaced by those company markings.

Best,
Charles

P.S.,
What is the contact info for the shop that is trying to sell this monstrosity??

I need to call them...... about something else of course!!!

That looks like nail polish on the front sight to me. If it is still there, grab it.

Well guys I stopped by the LGS and sure enough it was still there so now its home with me. Here are some pics after shooting it. It runs smooth and appears to have been used very little. I also noticed the cylinder and barrel have matching numbers with the frame. Thank you all for your comments they were very helpful. Enjoy the pics.

Oh yeah, good snag! I'm primarily a DA shooter so that one trips my trigger, sorry for the pun. Enjoy that one!
