Default S&W 3914

So I read the post below & was wondering if there is any difference with a 3914 & 3914LS? (I didn't want to hijack his thread)

I am considering buying one. 2 magazines & box. I'd say good condition bc it has been shot but not abused. I can have it out the door for ~$350. Sound like a good deal?

the only difference between the two is cosmetic....the "Lady Smith" inscription on the slide and the slanted dust cover....functionality is the same.....yes it sounds like a good deal

Screaming deal. Go bring it home now.
I was thrilled to get a 3914NL (Ladysmith without the inscription) for more than $400 recently. I would have paid as much as $500 simply because I love the platform and it was a nice example. With box automatically adds $50 in my head.

Sounds like I found a deal then. I've always wanted a 3rd gen or 2nd but never wanted to venture into the $400-$500 range. I'll stop by & look at it again this week(if it's still there). If everything is just as my first impression thoughts then I'll snag it. Best photo I got of it before I left

I would say that $350 out the door for a decent condition Model 3914 with factory box and two magazines is quite good. I purchased one recently for a little more money than that... but, unfortunately, no factory box in my case.

I'm actually very pleased with it. Already own a bunch of Model 3913 pistols, but I really like the alternative look of the premium black-finished 3rd Gen. Yes, the finish is a lot more delicate than stainless, but I'm not going to carry it or otherwise abuse it. It should look this good for a long time to come.

When I got out on my own, college, etc, I promised myself I would never again eat Tuna or Hamburger Helper. Now, nearing 60, I'm proud to say I've been true to that goal. If I found a deal like this, though, and money were tight, I might have to break my promise to myself. I could live with the box lunches to finance the purchase.

Tuna's OK, I guess, with lots of Hellman;s Mayo, dill pickle relish, onion, and diced black and green olives. Tuna Helper? Ugh
