I found a quite extensive stash of American Rifleman magazines from the mid to late 30's. My question is which issues would have Reg Mag ads or even Heavy Duty our Outdoorsman ads. Buying them all is not an option since they are rather pricy ($9 each). I was trying to remember if there was a really desirable ad in one of those issues. The ones I found are individually wrapped in cellophane so I can't peruse them before I buy. These particular years are fertile ground in S&W production so, any of you that know specific desirable issues please clue me in.

Mucho Gracias

Roger

Roger:
2 at least from 1935. Feb has one of the 1st articles on page 30 referencing the new .357. It is a short one. November of the same year has a very good article, pg 10+, with pics, by Elmer Keith on the .357, again.

Sorry, just re-read that your question was about ads. I will look in my stash.

I have every issue of the Rifleman from 1926 to date. Several years ago I put together a notebook containing all the .357 magnum ads I could find in the magazine, starting in 1935. The ads ran frequently in the magazine up to about 1946. If I recall correctly, S&W stopped all advertising in the magazine around 1947. That was about the time they were apologizing (in print in the magazine) about their huge backlog and subsequent inability to deliver enough guns to satisfy the post war demand.

Unfortunately, my notebook is still packed away in some box among all the rest of my gun books. I moved about three years ago and lots of stuff is still packed away.

Thanks guys for checking. That's just the information I was looking for. I'll buy a few shortly. I will be happy with either ads or articles.
