Default Gun Show Find .. Model 17-6

Went to a local gun show this past weekend. Slim pickings on SW revolvers. Ended up finding this Model 17-6, dating to 1989. Had a beautiful set of combats on her.

She was DIRTY, honestly I didn't think it was ever cleaned. Complete breakdown, cleaned, oiled and boy did she clean up really nice. A coat of Ren wax and she good as new.

I've never been to that show, is it any good? Oaks had a nice sample of smiths and colts this go around, but nothing that I needed that bad at the prices they were asking.

Bubba, ya done good!
I have one just like your's. Great shooter.
The Combat stocks are factory issue on those. I've never been able to figure out why S&W chose to put combats on what is obviously a target/hunting revolver? They did the same thing with the full lugged Models 14-5 and 16-4. I swapped mine out for regular target stocks.

You did a great job cleaning it and bringing it back to it's original luster. Enjoy it, I know you have a great shooter there.
